Railroad Earth hits the studio
Tuesday, February 5, 2008
– About two years after Railroad Earth released "Elko," the double-live album, Railroad Earth is in the studio.
The band is recording the new album at a 300 year-old farmhouse in Stillwater, N.J., in a recording studio they built themselves. Among the six members, they play just about every instrument and are producing the record themselves. Phil Nicolo will step in to mix the album for the final product.
Look for the yet-to-be titled release to hit in June 2008 on SCI Fidelity Records.
