Michigan's STILL REMAINS have been hard at work for the last nine months writing and preparing for their second studio album, tentatively titled "The Serpent". On January 21 the band entered a Los Angeles studio with acclaimed producer Steve Evetts (STORY OF THE YEAR, HE IS LEGEND, SAVES THE DAY) to begin the recording process. "It's been a long wait for us," comments band frontman TJ Miller. "It's such a refreshing feeling to finally be in the studio again, working on all the material we have been writing for the past year. But our patience is now, finally paying off. We have been in L.A. for the past two weeks working on pre-production, and the drums are almost finished. 'The Serpent' is a lot darker, and more honest of an album as we have ever written. Expect the unexpected as these songs are faster, darker, heavier, and more melodic than anything we have ever written as a band."
The album is slated for a summer 2007 release via Roadrunner, but the band won't be waiting until then to hit the road. Expect to see STILL REMAINS on tour in early spring and continuing the worldwide conquest throughout the year into 2008. "We feel that it is very important for the entire world to hear this record," says Miller, "This album is going to be monumental, so we plan on touring on it until our bodies quit functioning."
Throughout the recording process STILL REMAINS will be filming and posting photos and videos for podcasts. Keep checking the band's official MySpace page for updates, podcasts and insanity!
