Better Volume in Ableton Live Mixing

When creating your final mix of a track, it is very important that all of your tracks have the best possible volume levels.

A FRAMES' new recording, "4", is almost all done. We recorded 12 songs at SOD Studio with Dan Strack of Factums/Fruit Bats fame. Scott S was here co-producing with us. There's just a few songs to remix, which will be done by the end of June. Not sure when it will come out, but that's up to Subpop's schedule I guess. We're really happy with it, and it was lots of fun having friends come down and contribute. There's some new appearances and some of the usual suspects are on it, including Climax Golden Twins, Josh Turgeon, Jo Claxton, Laura Cassidy, Wolfgang Acker, Jesse Paul Miller, Matthew Ford and Dan Strack.

We're doing a few Seattle shows this summer, and three shows in August along the west coast with The Pyramids,

jun 23 - seattle @ artworks (all ages), w/archaeoptryx (nyc)
july 14 - seattle @ funhouse, w/pink reason (green bay), hue blanc's joyless ones, kount fistula
july 27 - seattle @ funhouse, w/the lamps (la), haunted george, cheap time (nashville)
aug 3 - sf @ the hemlock, w/pyramids, pterodactyl (nyc)
aug 4 - sac @ fools foundation, w/pyramids, mutators (canada), sexy prison
aug 6 - portland @ dunes, w/pyramids, the professional man
aug 18 - seattle @ jules maes, w/pyramids, the shackles

So, the part in the last post where I said we were probably going to tour the west coast in May? Scratch that (sorry). Instead we're going to record our next record in May, at a place in Ballard with Steve Fisk. We now have enough material, have it rehearsed enough, to proceed past "go."

A tour is looking more like next spring because the record will definitely be out by then, and it's always more fun to have a new record on tour. We may be able to do a long weekend here or there in the meantime though....

Upcoming local shows:
Feb 24 - Pub 340 in Vancouver BC, w/Shearing Pinx, Modern Creatures
Mar 2 - Alibi Room w/ DJ Matthew Ford
Mar 23 - Rendezvous, w/ Factums, Kount Fistula
May 5 - Comet, w/The Professional Man
May 12 - Funhouse, w/Cheveu (from France!), Tyvek (Detroit!), Nice Smile
Greetings. I thought it might be time to give a state of the union. A FRAMES is still in existence, we're just being very quiet right now. We went on tour to Europe in September/October 2006 and had an amazingly great time. Thank you to everyone who came to the shows, played with us, put us up, booked us, etc, and also to Andy & Subpop for the tickets, Robert for the coordination/booking, and Ecky for driving etc. We can't wait to return.

Next tour for us will likely be in May down the west coast, but nothing's been set up yet.

The next album will be called MIDNIGHT VISIONS and will be on Subpop if they like it. We are still working on the last couple songs before we can book the studio time.

Next shows are Feb 3 at The Funhouse, and Feb 24 in Vancouver BC. Hope to see you there.

Been a long time

Lots of news to report~!

First off, we must announce Lars' departure from A FRAMES. We felt it was the best thing all round and we are all very much still compadres to the fuckin core. How could we not be? Taking over on drums is the unmistakable Thommy Northcut. He's also a badass sk8er, photographer, cook, dancer, his favorite color is brown and he likes to garden! He moved here not too long ago from the fried state of Kentucky. Our first show with Thommy was last Saturday at the Funhouse and it was lots of fun.

The Intelligence just returned from a massive European tour and I need to get with those guys to find out all about how great it was.

A FRAMES are heading to Europe too, now that the Intelligence have warmed up the audiences hahaha. But seriously, it's gonna happen. September 28 - October 11, look for more details soon here or at kissnrun.com.

And lastly, this ole site is long overdue for an extreme makeover. I'll get right on that.

I love you guys,
