Happy Wednesday everyone! John F. here.
MARCH FOR SCIENCE FUNDRAISER!
First we want to thank EVERYONE who helped us raise over $40,000 to benefit
the March for Science in Washington, DC on April 22nd.
We live in complicated times, but it is encouraging that so many TMBG folk cared enough to participate.

NEW ALBUM MAKING BEGINS AT THE STUDIO
WHERE FLOOD WAS CREATED
Things have been impossibly busy here in TMBGland as just this
Monday we have formally embarked on making an album of brand new songs.
We are working at Pat Dillett’s new studio space which is the same
magnificent studio space that was Skyline Studios in
midtown Manhattan where we recorded Flood.
Of course it brings back wonderful memories,
but it also brings out fantastic sound (the big room is a magnificent wooden space,
and the Neve console was acquired from Herbie Hancock’s studio–he made Rockit on it!).
We spent yesterday recording the full band and knocked out four tracks,
which felt like a lot even for us. When will we be done? Who knows. Probably around when the money runs out!
