The Chariot Begin Recording New Album

by Zack Zarrillo - May 16, 2012

The Chariot are a week into recording their new album with Matt Goldman. Check out a full interview with Josh Scogin discussing the record here and a snippet of it below by clicking “Read More.”

How far along in the recording process are you?
JOSH SCOGIN:
 We’ve been here for a little over a week and we’re pretty far along, actually. The last couple of records we’ve done, we’ve recorded them song-by-song as opposed to most of the time when bands record they do all of the drums, all the bass, all the guitars, etc. Doing it song-by-song, it’s just easier and more fluid for us—more natural. Other than vocals, we’re all the way done, so we’re actually more than halfway done with the record. We’ve only got a couple more tracks to do so I don’t know what we’re gonna do with all the extra time. [Laughs.]

How long did you plan to be in the studio?
We’re here for three weeks and then for one week of mixing. In the past, that’s how we’ve liked to work because if you get too much time, we start overthinking stuff and things don’t feel as natural or as impulsive as we’d like. But obviously, with too short of time there’s a chance you’ll start to agree to anything, so we try to keep it at three weeks to keep us on our toes and also to give us enough time to try things that we may not end up keeping.

Where are you recording?
Matt Goldman’s studio in Atlanta. Yeah, we always go with Goldman and probably always will.
