A Thousand Torches (tumblelog)

beaming in the distance...

this THEFAMILY3 homebase has been several years in development... now its finally coming to life! Created by Neesh- contact her for feedback, to help out, contribute ideas via neesh[at]athousandtorches[dot]com

update: thanks to Denizen donations we've been able to begin erecting the News Den and gathering logs for our Campsite!



Between recording sessions for the new Weerd Science release (“Red Light Juliet” – May 21st), Neesh caught up with Josh Eppard (Coheed and Cambria), DJ Dirty Ern, and Chris Bittner (Applehead Recording and Production) in the studio to find out more about the release and shoot the shit. Josh put together a killer playlist, and… boom! Neeshcast #42 was born.

Thanks for all of the support! 

‘No Zeros’ drops on December 13th. It is up and available for pre-order for only $3. Individual tracks are $1 each except for “843-3323” which will be a free download.

This will be my third EP this year and the first time I’ve worked alone on my own music. 

I had the pleasure of having Chris Bittner of Applehead Recording work on some songs and this will be a first time Bittner product, as I’ve worked with him on the upcoming release ‘Hiatus’ as well, but due to some issues, had to postpone further production.

I am currently posting from Applehead Studio in Woodstock, NY. Why would we be down at Applehead? Because we are nearing the end of finishing the new album! We have to track one more song (which we wrote while recording the album) and mix everything down here. We have the pleasure having Chris Bittner and Mike Birnbaum mix the album. This has been and still is an awesome journey writing, recording, and arranging this album. More videos and updates to come!
