36 CRAZYFISTS: In Pre-Production Mode

36 CRAZYFISTS guitarist Steve Holt has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"Today [Oct. 31] marks the official beginning of pre-production for us. Our producer Sal Villanueva [THURSDAY, TAKING BACK SUNDAY, VISION OF DISORDER] flew in last night from New Jersey so we figured wed kick this thing off with a trip to the bar for a few drinks and a little shoptalk. I got to say, Sal is definitely the man for the job. We all hit it off great and Im positive that Sal is going to pull the best out of us and knows what kind of quality record were looking to do. We have been writing hard all summer and have filtered through and trashed two albums' worth of material. Leaving only the best of the best, we have assembled our sickest set of songs by far, that are very 36, yet a large leap forward from the last album. And with Sal on board now, I have never been so stoked to record an album. This is going to destroy. We already have click tracks that Thomas has been playing to and we got these songs fairly tight, but that is what pre-production is for we have to make these songs an air tight, impenetrable wall of molten metal. This we will accomplish. Today will consist of playing through these songs all day long and letting Sal get a feel for them as we begin to dissect and reassemble these bad boys. More to come..."

36 CRAZYFISTS' sophomore album, "A Snow Capped Romance", was released in March 2004 through Roadrunner Records. The follow-up to 2002's "Bitterness the Star" was produced by James Wisner, who has worked with such post-hardcore acts as DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL and FURTHER SEEMS FOREVER. Veteran British knob-twiddler Andy Sneap (MACHINE HEAD, SKINLAB, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, ARCH ENEMY, OPETH) mixed the CD at his Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, England.
