10 Things You Didn’t Know About Timeflies New Album “After Hours”
[After Hours will be released Tuesday, April 29th. Pre-Order here]
They rented a studio house in LA and locked themselves away to record the bulk of the album.
Only three breaks during our non stop recording— a Nicky Romero concert, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (on his last season) and a show at Lollapalooza.
They wrote a song with buddy Mike Posner and another with Martin Johnson, the lead singer of Boys like Girls.
While working on the song "Beast" they got so fired up they couldn’t stop doing pushups. Ultimate workout anthem.
There was a grill in the back yard outside the studio. They grilled steak and chicken every night. Little sauteed mushroom action and some Veri Veri Teriyaki.
They revisited and did different production on a lot of the songs for the album, but Start It Up particularly, they went through 10 different versions before falling in love with the final one.
The studio house was infested with ants. We had to play a lot of defense.
The last 3 songs they did were Somebody Gon Get It with T-pain, All the Way, and Monsters. All three are some of our favorites off the album.
Two of their favorite songs, originally meant to go on the album, they released on our EP Warning Signs.
There are a couple different songs where you can hear them partying and singing in the background. Can you name them?
Lately, I have been obsessed (even more than usual) with the idea of traditional preppy attire. I consider preppiness more than just a fashion statement; for me, it is a lifestyle, an idea that I am wearing the same style of clothing that my mother wore when she was my age. It spans generations, and although it evolves, it continues to find its way into my wardrobe as comfortable staples nestled throughout my closet and woven through the pictures of my childhood. In essence, it is my clothing security blanket. And besides the fact that I am a major pack rat who still has projects from elementary school in boxes in my linen closet, I know that I can’t be the only one who cringes at the thought of throwing away or donating the well worn oxfords and polos that I have had for years. Maybe that is the real reason for all this preppiness that surrounds us, the idea that this lifestyle is more than just a fad; that it is just a continuation of something greater, something that can’t be thrown away.
