It has been a while since I’ve last mused, but much has happened since then I feel most inclined to catch you up.
When The Demons Come is finished and released, and I am proud and excited to say it. A BIG thank you to Evan Dwinnell, Courtney Dubois, Ben Lemen, Emily Lemen, Bruce Milan, Aaron Goldstein, Andrew Shropshire, Amy Liden and Misha Lee for all your assistance, talents and encouragement throughout the recording process.
Some fun facts about the album: It was recorded in just over a years time in various apartments and homes of mine across Ontario. I consider it a DIY project, I recorded, produced and mixed it myself, with additional engineering by Andrew Shropshire. As mentioned in a previous post Andrew, Evan and I set up shop at St. Luke’s Anglican Church in Creemore, Ontario to do some drum tracking as well, its a pretty place (and may have some new things coming from this church on the horizon). Here is a little feature peice on The Sound STC where I go into a little more detail on the album and the process: https://thesound.rocks/dave-allen-when-the-demons-come-2017/
In promotion of the album, Im working at developing team of good folks to get the word out, any sharing and word-of-mouth street talk really helps in a big way, thanks to you who have shared it thus far, keep it coming.
I will be heading out on an Eastern Canada Tour within the next couple of weeks with my dearest Amy. We will be hopping in the station wagon and making real highway miles bringing the record to you folks in the Maritimes and Montreal. I look forward to meeting you. We will be bringing with us some newly printed Compact Discs, some T-Shirts and some Canvas Bags for your consumption pleasures 🙂 Pictures coming soon.
