After spending a year in Asheville, The Fritz are ready to take their sound to the next level. Bootstrap, the band’s second studio effort is planned for an early fall release. Taking inspiration from their move to North Carolina and the up’s and down’s of every touring band, the group created a masterpiece that captures the true essence of digging in and rising above.
Recorded at Crooked Tree Studios in Florida, the band worked with engineers Peter Duggan and Wouter Reyniers to develop a sound that not only matches their powerful stage show, but also one that shows the development and growth of the band since their last release, Prehistoric Stomp. Utilizing two engineers allowed the band to record around the clock, allowing time and patience in each session.
Jamar Woods, keyboards and lead vocalist, commented on the studio experience. “Having two engineers (Duggan and Reyniers) afforded the opportunity to record almost non-stop. This tag team duo definitely burned the midnight oil so that we could take our time and get things right. The studio experience also gave me an inside look at each of the members of our band. Listening to them solo as well as watching them record really showed me how lucky I am to be playing with such awesome musicians.”
While the finishing touches are being put on the album, the band is staying close to home for the summer months. Look for a full touring schedule to be announced soon, including the Asheville Record Release Party and stops in their favorite venues in the Southeast and Florida.
