Vancouver thrash metallers Bison B. C. are currently recording their third album for Metal Blade Records. The recording officially started on June 2nd with acclaimed producer Sanford Parker at Soma and Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago. Parker is best known for his work with bands such as Yob, Pelican, Rwake, Yakuza, Nachtmystium, Zoroaster, Unearthly Trance and more.
Vocalist/guitarist James Farwell commented on the recording process:
“After slaving over these songs since last summer we have finally set up a hobo camp in Chicago to record with Sanford Parker. First at Electrical Audio then to Soma. Feels good to be away from home to make this record; new environment, new places to drink, it’s good for us. It’s also exciting because this will be our first recording with our newest idiot, Matt Wood, playing drums. Special thanks to Matt for topping up our idiocy.”
What does Matt think of all this? “In keeping with my idiot life it seemed very natural to join these other idiots, and make a mother fucker of a record”.
Following the recording of their third album, the band plans to go on a short tour of western Canada at the end of June and the beginning of July. Click here to see a list of tour dates, cities and venues.
