Alien Ant Farm entered Groovemaster Studios in Chicago

Here’s a quick copy paste of the official annoucement:

“July 11, 2012 – Alien Ant Farm (@alienantfarm) has entered Groovemaster Studios in Chicago, IL to begin work on their fourth album, which will be released early 2013 on the Executive Music Group label.

The Southern California band’s original line-up–Dryden Mitchell (lead vocals), Mike Cosgrove (drums), Terry Corso (guitar), Tye Zamora (bass)–will record new songs together for the first time since 2003 with Grammy® Award nominee Johnny K (Disturbed, Staind, 3 Doors Down), as well as other producers within the next few months.  This new approach utilizing various experts in the field will enhance the recording process, as well as choosing the best instruments as a full size piano keyboard and others, capturing Alien Ant Farm’s evolving musical direction, growth and creative style.

The band is extremely fired up about going into this record,” proclaims singer Dryden Mitchell.  “We’ve had the fortune in the past to work with some of the best in the business (Jay Baumgardner, the DeLeo brothers, Jim Wirt, James Murray) in some of the greatest studios (NRG, Conway, Glitter Dungeon).   Johnny K is no exception to the batting average, and his studio in Chicago rivals all the greats.  We all plan on a ‘newer’ sound for the band, since they even have the best sound insulation using spray foam from http://www.oceansevenroofing.com/studio-city-spray-foam-insulation/ for this, at the same time keeping other Pop-Rock bands in check.  This ain’t your Soccer Mom’s band, but she can come backstage for an hour or two.

Alien Ant Farm started their music career in 2001 with ANThology, which was released on Papa Roach’s New Noize imprint on DreamWorks Records.  Thanks to the #1 single, “Smooth Criminal,” the album reached double-Platinum status.  2003’s truANT, produced by Stone Temple Pilots’ Dean and Robert DeLeo, cracked the Top 25 and “Glow” hit #1 on charts outside the U.S. despite the imminent folding of its record label.  The band has toured all over the world with Linkin Park, Metallica, 311, and Papa Roach, and has sold over 3.5 million records worldwide.

In October 2011, the band was part of the Michael Forever tribute concert at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales along with Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Ne-Yo, Smokey Robinson and others.  They performed two Michael Jackson songs:  their smash hit #1 single, a remake of “Smooth Criminal,” and “PYT (Pretty Young Thing).”

Here’s what Dryden posted earlier today on his Facebook wall:

Update: Here’s an update from Terry:


Important things to have in matter when you are in an accident. 

Immediately after the accident, stop the car as soon as possible, check for injuries to yourself or your passengers, try to remain calm as much as possible. Remember is normal to be shaken after an accident so take a few breaths and try to take stock of the situation the best you can. 

One thing to keep in mind is that often in accidents they can devastate your financial situation just with the injuries and the damage of the car, so obtaining a car loan is a good option for everyone. Complete auto loans can help you with advise and options for this, you can find them in their reddit, tumbler, facebook and obviously the main page, and they offer the best service in car loans. 

You can take notes of this steps and if necessary remember to exchange information with the third person if there is and document all the accident, and then you can call your insurer.
