    Hey everyone,

    My band Goodbye to Gravity just penned a deal with Universal Music for the release of our second album. Three years ago we launched our debut and some of you Sneapsters liked it (some of you even helped out - Eddy Apolonia), so I thought I'd share the news and the first single with you.

    A little insight on the production stuff - we mixed the album on an SSL 9080J console at Black Rock Studios in Santorini, where BMTH recently recorded their new album.

    If you are interested in detailed stuff about the production, I'm happy to answer any questions.

    Needless to say, this album wouldn't have been possible without the huge help of this forum, so, a collective and heartfelt THANKS to all of you!

    Also interested about what you like/dislike about the music & production. :D

    Cheers & enjoy!

    Thanks a lot, everyone! Sorry about the video not being available in the US - that VEVO stuff quite a pain in the ass, unfortunately, it's how Universal uploads their stuff, so I hope it'll get fixed soon (I understand that US and Canada take a longer time for clearing the uploads).

    For those who couldn't watch it, maybe this will play fine: http://www.clipfish.de/musikvideos/video/4243865/goodbye-to-gravity-the-day-we-die/

    Guys, again, thanks so much for the kind words!

    In case anybody is interested, I can upload some unmastered samples of the Pro Tools ITB vs. SSL/hardware mix.
