At the time of writing, the core keyboard and drum parts have already been recorded and Kylan is in the studio recording the bass tracks.  Paul comes to record the Vocals next Monday and then, once that’s done, John will be recording the Guitars at Outhouse Studios and then mixing and producing the Album to be ready for sale on tour in April and May!
