Notes by Johnny Sangster
We recorded the album over two 3 day weekends at Avast Recording in Seattle, one in April and one in Sept of 2012. We had a few days for overdubs at my studio Crackle & Pop! and then back to Avast in October to mix. Avast is a cool space in Greenwood Seattle. It was originally built in the mid 70s and was called Ironwood up until Stuart Hallerman took it over about 6 years ago. It has two studios and we were recording in the smaller of the two.
One interesting factoid about the record; after having toured some of the songs over the summer, the band felt they should give a few songs another crack for the September session. Most of the new versions beat out the older but on Douchbags On Parade, we preferred the earlier version's intro and outro but liked the body of the song best from the September version. The album take is a composite of those two versions, you can hear the snare sound changes right before the singing starts and again as the outro begins. I did record and mix all of the tracks on the record.
