Alex welcomed Joe to Lisbon on Sunday, and after a relaxing evening Stagma’s bassist and rhythm guitarist got straight down to business first thing on Monday.
After a busy day, Joe has already wrapped two tracks at PressPlay, his performance described by an excited Alex as ‘huge’.
The boys are back in the studio today and we hope to have more news for you soon.
You wait ages for a guitarist and then three come along at once. Or is that buses?
Fabulous news this morning as Neil Fraser confirmed that he will be joining Joe and Alex at PressPlay Music in Lisbon next weekend to record tracks for Stagma‘s debut album. A hyper-busy weekend is planned, as Neil will only be around for a couple of days, but all being well – alongside a hectic recording schedule – there will be time for a little relaxation, sightseeing and some of that always warm Portuguese hospitality.
Building on the sterling work provided by Vinny at his studio in LA in August, adding Neil’s lead guitar, Alex’s rhythm guitar and Joe’s bass will nearly put the finishing touches to Stagma, the band’s debut album. We’re certainly looking forward to hearing the fruits of their labours.
Things are coming together nicely. Stagma are in the studio, recording tracks for for our debut release.
Vinny Appice, our drummer, has already laid down his signature powerful style on several tracks at his studio in Los Angeles and Alex is preparing to add rhythm guitars at PressPlay studios in Lisbon. All being well Joe Petro will join Alex in Lisbon to add bass and later lead guitar, by Neil Fraser, will be added soon after.
On completion the music will be mixed and produced at Alex’s PressPlay Music studios in Lisbon.
