Writing sessions for the 2nd album

Behind the Sun are writing and arranging material in rehearsals for our second album, which hopefully will come out sometime early next year.

I can tell you we are using a methodology Dan came up with called "Dylanology" where we barnstorm through early arrangements of the songs without getting stuck on the tiny little details and then move to the next song. In theory, when we make the final arrangements for the songs on the album, the songs will sound more unified because we "closed the books" on them all at the same time.

We've got 6 songs Dylanized so far, I can probably get away with giving away the titles:

Art of Words, Silhouettes, City in the Dusk, Things Fall Apart, Lies Not Worth Repeating, The Burning

A bunch more in various stages of deconstruction - hopefully the final final arrangements will start this summer.

What can I tell you about the direction? Heavier, darker, bigger sounding if that makes any sense. A massive rock slide burying you in Earth. That's my impression from the inside...
