During this tour we have played around 12 or so new songs, we have stuck to the “full band” numbers as these are what we wanted to “galvanize” pre recording. We have tons more, some full band and some very stripped but I guess we had to find the balance between trying stuff out and putting on a good “show”.
Most important news is probably that in January the boys will dive in the studio with producer Ethan Johns, who has worked with such artists such as Ryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Ray LaMontagne, Rufus Wainwright as well as Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt and others. Johns is the son of legendary producer, Glyn Johns (Rolling Stones, Eagles).
All in all this tour has just been a great boost for TB life in general and we all feel pretty darn ready now to get into a studio with Ethan Johns (!!!) in jan and start Opus4, Thanks everyone for snapping up the tickets and selling this tour out, we feel you’re excited about the future, we sure are! Talk soon
