DETROIT - Gold Route will be in the studio in November recording their debut full length album. The band posted the announcement to their Facebook page today.
The writing process for the album began in January. Some songs came effortlessly, according to vocalist Sean Hazen, while others "came out of nowhere."
Hazen says the band expects to release a single or two this winter and are planning to release the album in late spring next year.
Gold Route will record the album at Undead Studios in Trenton -- the same studio the band recorded their latest EP, I'm Just Killing Time.
At first, the band struggled to decide on where to record, "because we wanted something different for the sake of change and progression," Hazen says. "But we also knew that the recording experience last time [at Undead Studios] felt pretty effortless, because of our relationship with Michael [Martensen] and all the other guys there."
"Michael did a good job of getting the best out of us," Hazen says.
Gold Route believes this upcoming record is one that can take the band to the next level, and they do not intend taking this release lightly.
"We have put a lot of effort into defining what Gold Route is and what it means," Hazen says. "Hopefully that will resonate with people."
