In late April, all six current members of BLOODYMINDED gathered in Chicago to record our next album. Prior to entering the studio with producer/engineer Sanford Parker, we wrapped up a monumental weekend by performing at our beloved local venue, The Empty Bottle. This was literally the first time that all six of us had played a show together. Think about that for a moment. There has literally always been someone missing. This is just one element of "The Struggle Of Togetherness." The potential for disaster was obvious. A six man pile-up. Playing on the floor of the venue, in front of the stage. The crowd gathered around us. The anticipation of being locked away in the studio for the next few days. The need to nail it. And it turned out to be a beautiful night. No broken bones. No destroyed equipment. Massive, clear sound, thanks to Kenny Rasmussen! Some great photographic evidence thanks to our friend Carmelo Española. This release is meant as a memento for the real fans. A recording of the show, a nice little patch and a sticker to commemorate our kind of togetherness. Hopefully, this will hold you over until the new album is ready to go...
