I've been down in TN this week rehearing with Whitechapel & tomorrow we're hittin' the road!. With that in mind, I figured another W.C. play-through was appropriate for my next upload. Here's the title track from 'Our Endless War' !
I recorded a bunch of new videos recently, with several different drum kits (just for fun!). I tracked this tune on my Tama Superstar Birch.
Fun story about this kit: It originally lived in England & belonged to Nolly. I used the toms from it (the 10", 14", & 16") on the first Good Tiger album, & afterwards the band bought the shells from him to use as our EU tour kit. I gigged around Europe with it a few times, & upon my departure from the band they offered to let me have it (thanks doodes!). It then took a quick trip across the great Atlantic, & now lives at my home in Maryland. So this kit's been all over, & it surely has some sentimental value to me. I quite enjoyed tracking with it again.
& speaking of Mr. Adam "Nolly" Getgood, he also did the (lovely & slammin') mix for this video. I'm STOKED with how it turned out (!!!) - if you're interested in hiring Nolly for any mixing work, please contact him using the email address below (he's truly the best in the BIZ!) -
