After a lengthy span of silence, Armstrong is finally bringing big news to the table in the announcement of their most recent milestone. Their work has been diligent. Their rest has been little. Their creativity and patience has been tested. But they couldn’t be happier with the culmination of it all-their new self-titled album.
Co-produced by Scott Faris, the new Armstrong EP was recorded at the highly acclaimed Amusement Park Studios in Lubbock, Texas. The album’s mastering was done by Sterling Sound’s Grammy-winning chief mastering engineer, Ted Jenson (AC/DC, Pantera, Disturbed, Shinedown, Green Day, Deftones) in New York City.
This taken into account, it is safe to say that Armstrong has a knack for not only doing things big, but doing them correctly. Guitarist and founder, Will Armstrong, elaborated on this by saying, “This wasn’t just some thrown-together production. This was a long process in the making. We wanted to make sure we did this right from start to finish. We wanted to make sure we got in the right studio, got the right person behind the controls, and brought in the right people. We wanted to make sure we didn’t cut ANY corners at all just to make sure that, when it was all said and done, we had the best possible finished product. And that’s exactly what we did.”
The record is a deep examination of the tough, and often painful, journeys that life can take us on. It’s an unadulterated chronicle as seen through the eyes of someone who’s been knocked down harder than imagination would permit, someone most every person can relate to. But most importantly, it’s a constant reminder to never stop reaching for the unreachable, and to never give up before getting where we want to be.
