Rebooting The Robot: Jon's Blog

Pre-production on track! 

Well, it's almost time! Pre-production on the new album is going smoothly with producer Joel Tock.   For those of you that don't know Joel, he's the guy that produced the RTR remix album.  This album is going to have a lot of firsts on it, at least for RTR.  Firstly, we're producing it long distance.  Joel is in the US, and I'm in the UK.  It's definitely going to make things a bit challenging.  Also, we're conducting all the sessions via Skype.  Kind of crazy to think about! A few years ago this type of thing wouldn't be able to happen! 

We're also going a bit heavier with the louder, more rock-oriented tracks.  I think this is just the natural progression of things.  If you look back through the discography, things have always been a little louder and a little harder with each subsequent album, and so I think that growth will continue with this upcoming record.  I do have plans for an entirely acoustic album, though.  Staying close to my roots is important to me, and so I think a stripped down, straight forward acoustic album is definitely in the cards.  I'd also like to release a covers album, but that's just an idea for now.

The new album will be featuring guest vocals by Toby from Emery.  This is such a cool thing, because I grew up listening to Emery.  They had a profound impact on me, so to have their vocalist lay down vocals on my album is a pretty big deal.  Plus, those guys are just so damn nice you can't believe it. You guys are in for a treat with this record.  Also, this month is the 5 year anniversary of the "Nothing, Something, Everything" release date.  Man, that went by fast!

Thanks for all the support, you guys.  You're the greatest :)

Big things happening! 

 Man, today was a really great day. I recieved a call from a producer (who I do not want to name just yet), but the guy's definitely worked on some music you're sure to have heard. And it looks like there might be a possibility that I can work with him on some new Reboot The Robot stuff. Sure do hope this pan out the way I'd like it to. Also, Marshall Lee from the phenominal band Ladybug Landslide will be playing drums on some Reboot The Robot stuff here in the not to distant future. Marshall is an incredibly talented drummer, and I cannot say enough great thing about the guy. Very excited about what may be coming. If something does come of it, I'll be sure to let you all know when the time comes!

Here's hoping to see you sooner rather than later!

Love,

Jon
