MNSKA band The Prizefighters are about to head into the studio to record some brand new songs. The band had this to say about the upcoming recording sessions:
After writing a number of new songs, we will be entering the studio in early July for a vintage recording session at Shock and Audio (Lyndale and Lake in Uptown Minneapolis). To achieve a truly vintage sound, we will be doing live recording to tape…a definite first for all of us! The goal of these recordings is to put out a 7-inch vinyl as part of the Moondust Records series. Moondust is a label in Los Angeles that produces vinyl releases that honor the golden age of Jamaican reggae. They’ve put out releases by classic groups like The Soulsteppers and Laurel Aitken. We also hope to put out our own self-released 7-inch as a result of these recordings.
We can expect a Fall release of at least one of these 7-inches. The band also mentioned that they will be taking a break for a couple months after recording, but will be back in August/September in support of the new release. You can read the rest of their post at the band’s website HERE
Be sure to catch the last Prizefighters show of the summer when they open for Rocksteady Breakfast and Curious Volume at the Triple Rock on June 27th!
