We had a lovely time with our pals Erik and Mark at Reel Recording, laying down the basic skeletal system of 9 songs for the new album. We’re seriously excited about round two next month and filling in the blood and guts with vocals, handclaps, tubas and whatnot. In the meantime, follow us on Instagram (@thenobility) for more sights and eventually… sounds.
As we speak, The Nobility is hard at work prepping to make their next full-length album – recording is set to begin at the end of April. Expect a bounty of updates in the form of Instagrams, Facebook posts and tweets.
