It’s been about a year and a half since Some Army successfully funded their Kickstarter campaign for the album, One Stone and Too Many Birds.
In that time, the band worked with Jeff Crawford to record the album at the Fidelitorium in Kernersville and then with Scott Solter (St. Vincent, Superchunk, John Vanderslice, Mountain Goats) for mixing and James Plotkin (Horseback, Tim Hecker) for mastering.
“I’ve been tweaking, experimenting, recording, and generally obsessing over these songs in various spaces since March,” bandleader Russ Baggett wrote in an email.
The lineup for the album is Patrick O'Neill on guitar and keyboards, Elysse Thebner on guitar, keyboards and backing vocals, Brad Porter on drums/percussion, Joe Caparo on bass, and Baggett on lead vocals and everything else. James Phillips from Bombadil makes a brief guest appearance for a spoken work part.
Final artwork, track listing and release date aren’t settled yet for One Stone and Too Many Birds, but an early 2015 release is likely according to Baggett.
Some Army is playing Local Beer, Local Band at Tir Na Nog with Lilac Shadows and No Eyes this Thursday, October 16 and entry is free.
