Starting a band in Denton, TX is like . . .

Bringing Coals To Newcastle

Before Emil began the Angelus, he and Matt had their first Denton rock experiment called
Coals To Newcastle. They recorded one album but never released it. The band split soon after the recording was completed.

Our friend M. Leer has been kind enough to post the songs to his blog THE DIAMOND AGE.
You can download the album there as well as find some more recordings from Denton bands of yore. Worth a look and listen.

Fred’s Homecoming

We swear this isn’t an intervention or anything, just a celebration of Fred’s return to Texas from the vile state of Kansas (I’ve never been there . . . it’s vile right?). He’s survived the rigors of the military duty including losing half a pinky finger, being kicked by his own horse (broken ribs), and dressing in antiquated cavalry uniform. They also tried to shave his head, but aha, Fred was one step ahead of them. What makes this even better is that we're playing with the Hope Trust and Tre Orsi. Very excited to play with both of these bands. (Matthew Barnhart of Tre Orsi has been engineering our new record for the past several months.) Alright, alright. Just be there.

The Angelus
Tre Orsi
The Hope Trust

Emil will also play a short solo set at Rubbergloves on Sept. 4th before The Angelus plays in Dallas.

Finished recording overdubs this week. Corrected flubs and layered guitar mostly but also added some strings and marimba care of our friends Tamra and the members of Dust Congress. Sounds really great at first blush. We'll see how everything pans out once we record vocals and start mixing. Either way, another big step toward finishing the record.

Recording New Album

Finally, we've set to work on our debut, full-length album.
Under the ever patient watch of engineer Matthew Barnhart we've spent several fruitfull days and nights at the Echo Lab in Denton, TX tracking what will be our debut album. If you remember, this is where we recorded our self-titled EP back in 2004. Barnhart engineered that as well, but this time we are accompanied by our friend Josh Pearson who is producing the album. If we can survive under his brutal lash hopefully the album will be finished by the end of the summer.

We'll keep you posted.

In the meantime check back here for any sporadic show updates.

P.S. - You can see some more photos from the echo lab here.
