We're getting some great work done on the new album, which we're recording with Brandon Fitzsimons at Airport Grocery in the lovely Georgetown neighborhood. We're having fun firing up two Sovtek amps - Marc's MIG 60 and Brandon's MIG 100 - for a seriously pissed-off, NOISY guitar sound. Megan's coming up with some great vocal lines and lyrics as usual!

Picture
Please welcome the newest member of The Family Curse, Brandon Fitzsimons! Brandon is a veteran of the Lawrence, KS and Seattle music scenes, most notably having played in the incredibly heavy band, Wormwood. He's also a member of bLack Queen. The band is excited to start playing show with the new elements Brandon brings to the table (synths, percussion, vocals).
