The Obscurants

This time tomorrow I will be sailing over to Ireland to start work on the new Alternative 4 album 'The Obscurants', then heading straight out on tour at the end of the month. The recording sessions take place at Transmission Rooms studio in County Longford where we recorded the drums for The Brink (which will be re-released by Prophecy Productions on November 23rd). The studio now have the actual Neumann U47 and U87 microphones previously owned by John Lennon, which he used on the Imagine album. We'll keep you updated over on and the Alternative 4 forum, and I'll do an extensive write-up here once the tour is over.
