Checking in from another beautiful day here in upstate NY! We had a great time in Saratoga yesterday performing at Rock & Run, eating crepes and busking in the park. Now we get down to business… the business of making another record. We will be wrapping up pre-production this week, and are very excited to move on to the next phase! Although we haven’t started yet, definitely make sure you are following us on our social media accounts, including the new Periscope live streaming platform which we have been experimenting a lot with, and expect to do even more of that once we start tracking. We want to give you the best glimpse possible into the recording process and would love to hear your feedback as well.
That’s all for now – the next time you hear from us, our new record will be underway…!!
We are so psyched to be back at MOVE Fest again this year! Spanning the course of 3 days (April 24-26) throughout multiple venues in Albany, it is certainly an exciting event. The official schedule was just announced today, and we are here to confirm we will be performing on day 1, Friday 4/24, at The Hollow at 8:00 PM! More details are available at the official festival website, including info on where you can purchase wristbands to access all the live music you could possibly want in one weekend! See you there!
Today we are pleased to let you all know that we have set a date to begin recording our third full-length record. We will be heading back into the studio at the end of May! As of now, the record will be self-produced. We currently have about 15 songs in the mix, which is narrowed down from a collection of almost twice that. We will be keeping you in the loop on our progress through the rest of pre-production and into tracking, via Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and right here on our website. We are hoping to bring you into our world a little further even with live streaming of some of our sessions. More on that to come. In the meantime, keep your eyes and ears peeled to our various accounts – can’t wait to share more with you as Spring comes.
We are currently running a “Spring Cleaning” Sale in our merch store where ALL T-Shirts are 50% Off!! Just making room for some new designs and new merch for 2015 so get your hands on one while they last! Click on Merchandise to the right and you will be re-directed to our online store at Storenvy. If you have any questions, let us know!
We are excited to announce that we will be performing at MOVE Music Festival here in Albany, NY the weekend of April 24th! We played back in 2013 and had a blast so we are thrilled to return this year. There will be a total of 100 bands performing over the 3-day festival and 50 of them have been announced so far. Check out www.movemusicfest.com for more details and presale passes!
Being the first update of the new year, we just want to first wish you all an amazing year ahead. Personally, we could not be more excited about 2015 and all we have in store. Including working on a new record! If you’ve been keeping up with us via Twitter and Instagram over the past couple weeks, you’ve likely seen us talking about the process. Although we are in the infancy stage of demoing, things are going very well. We have a stockpile of 20+ songs that we are sifting through, and starting to lay down the blueprints in our respective home recording environments.
With that being said, we are also thrilled to announce the addition of Ashleigh Whitfield to the Accents lineup on vocals and percussion. If you were at our last show, you have already been introduced to her on stage. If you weren’t, you will be introduced soon enough. Here’s a picture from the demoing process so far. She’s the one dropping the beat.
We can’t wait to share what we’re working on with you, including debuting a brand new song at our upcoming show on February 7th. We hope you’ll come out and help us kick off the next chapter of the Accents story with us.
TJ, Lauren, Jordan and Ashleigh
