Entries in Shels Music (4)



Tour is on! We are getting the van fixed ASAP and its looking good. In better news, we are almost done with merchandise. Our own Drew Binkley, of Monkey Inc Design, has been cranking it out the past 3 days straight and it's looking great. Here's a tease of the some of the sweet jams we will have for everyone on tour.

ALSO we just got word from our labels *shellsmusic & futurerecordings that the how lonley sits the city reprint and the from this vantage vinyl are OFFICIALLY OUT OF PRINT and that our band is in possession of the last available copies ever (unless there's a copy at your local record store).

As of right now we don't have any plans to do another re-print of HLSTC and Future Records isn't going to reprint FTV in interest of a newer (hush hush) limited release we'll be announcing soon. So if you want to get a copy for yourself before we sell out of them on the road go ahead and order it directly from us via: theascentofeverest(at)gmail.com and we'll be sure to send you a copy and a postcard from the long winding road ahead.

Ascent of Everest Tracking Completed

Well it was a tall bill but we just barely scraped under the razors edge and the new AOE full-length is all preped and off to CA where it will be mixed and mastered by the very capable and talented jordan andreen. It's been a grueling month and a half here at meltface studios and there were times i really didn't think we could pull it off with the limited time and no budget going on, i didn't think i was going to be able to go home for xxx-mas or enjoy life, but we pulled it off (yaah!). further, i have to say this is the best record i've ever produced, rob says this is some of his best engineering work, and we can't wait for you all to here it. once the tracks are mastered and the artwork is done we expect to set a release date, probably here in the next few weeks. The record will be released on slick CD's by shels music and beautiful 180 gram colored vinyl with hand printed sleaves in a joint venture by futurerecordings\meltface all designed by drew at monkeyinkdesign. more announcements and pictures sooooon....
