MESSAGE FROM THE BAND
It’s very nearly finished. After a crazy week of recording, followed by a hectic week of mixing, the 2017 Members EP is in the final stages before we send it off for manufacturing. Like so many years past, the recording was overwhelming at times, but who can we blame but ourselves for loving the crazy process of writing and recording from scratch in one day
. We are really excited about what we created. Like many songs before, they all feel unique and in some cases like nothing we have done before. It is important to always push the boundaries of what you are capable of and each time we start the recording process for another Member’s EP, it feels like boundaries are broken.
If you are a Hanson.net member, make sure to tune in to for special behind the scenes streams starting this Friday and going on every Friday all the way up to HANSON Day weekend. The streams will start at 6PM CT and feature footage from the making of the new EP In Color. If you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall during writing or recording, this is your chance. For anyone who misses the streams, we will be looping them all weekend long for your viewing pleasure.
In honor of it being available for sale to members starting this May, we are also going to be restreaming the making of the 2015 Members EP Inside the Box. Each week on Wednesday at 6PM CT and looping through Thursday, we will share the making of Inside The Box, Guns, Bacon, Robots and all.
After a short break for Easter, we will be starting up rehearsal for the Middle Of Everywhere world tour. There is so much music to prepare, but it feels good to think about building a set list for a show like this. Twenty five years of music all in one night is no small task and there will no doubt be music that is left on the cutting room floor, but we are going to enjoy the labor of getting to the best possible show we can play. We continue to be amazed at the excitement we are seeing from fans all over the world. It seems like each week more shows sell out and we find ourselves doing the Wayne’s World chant “We’re not Worthy, We’re not Worthy!” We have gotten to do so many amazing things and go so many places around the world, but as we look at this coming year, we still have a lot left on the bucket list. With any luck we can do some of them together!
Isaac, Taylor and Zac
