Of all the records I know to be in some state of production at the moment, none has me more intrigued than Palms. I can’t even imagine what it must sound like.
That’s because Palms is the band boasting former members of Isis and fronted by Deftones leader Chino Moreno.
Aaron Harris, no relation, says that the band has finished tracking its inaugural offering.
“And I couldn’t be happier with both the experience of creating this album and how it turned out,” says Harris.
Aaron’s awesome. I wish we were related. That would make me so much cooler by proxy.
“In early March, I met up with Deftones on the East Coast leg of their tour so that Chino and I could wrap up some vocals for the record,” Harris writes.
“We turned hotel rooms and backstage areas into temporary recording studios, which you can see a bit of in the photo gallery above. It was also fun to travel with the Deftones guys and crew for a few days; thanks to them for making me feel welcome and for being such great people.
“We’ve now officially handed the record off to the label. No more tweaking things. No more adding or subtracting. It’s nerve-wracking, but it’s also an enormous relief. Now I get to listen to it like a ‘regular person’ instead of scrutinizing every part. The other day I listened to the whole record during a run and it was indescribably satisfying. I hope you guys enjoy the record as much as we enjoyed creating it. It comes out June, 25, 2013 on Ipecac Recordings.”
I can’t fucking wait. And I mean that.
