One of At the Skylines' two singers, Chris Shelley, was recently interviewed by Muen Magazine, a metal blog. He talked to them about recording their debut album The Secrets To Life (in stores May 8), the scene in their hometown of Huntington Beach, California, the band's goals, and more.
Says Shelley, "The record was written in Huntington Beach, California. Pre-production was recorded and engineered in North Carolina by our dear friend Drew Fulk. We flew to Sweden where we spent a month recording the final album with Fredrik Nordstrom, which was then mixed and mastered by Ted Jensen in the States."
He describes the scene in Huntington Beach as "awesome...a lot of good friends that are willing to help each other out whether it be with getting one another on a show, or promotion. The draw is good, and kids love to come out to support national acts as well as locals."
He says At the Skylines' primary goal is "to prove to kids that being yourself, and setting goals and dreams for yourself are not too far out of reach. You can do and be whatever you want to be, and anything is possible. We want this generation, as well as others, to realize that love is still alive, and that brotherhood is what maintains unity."
The Secrets to Life will be available May 8. At the Skylines are launching a North American tour with Enter Shikari and Letlive April 1; click here to find a show near you!
