Hello internet world,
Eric from I Am Empire here once again. We are on Day 13 here at Salad Days Studio in Baltimore, Maryland and things are going great!
Yesterday I spent some time with Austin at the local Barnes & Noble, which is located right along the harbor. What a view! We got a chance to see a whole bunch of ships come in to the harbor for what was called the "Star-Spangled Sailabration", which had ships from Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia, Colombia, Ecuador, Denmark, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Japan, Norway and of course the USA. It was pretty sweet.
As far as music goes, drum tracking is over and I feel it went really well. I can honestly say that this feels like my best drumming yet. Check out YouTube for some sweet footage from the studio. Josh is currently on day two of tracking his bass parts, which are sounding super sweet and punchy so far. Look forward to next weeks blog to hear from Josh about bass tracking and other things.

Since we last heard from alternative rockers I Am Empire with 2011’s highly heralded Tooth & Nail debut Kings, the San Jose-based band logged endless miles of sweat equity on the road, supporting the likes of Emery, Brian “Head” Welch and Project 86, alongside its own headlining outing, plus a pair of performances at Germany’s enormous Christmas Rock Night festival. The results have not only found the foursome cementing their already apparent chemistry to indestructible degrees, but has also renewed their zeal for constant creativity that manifested itself throughout its second long player Anchors.
