GLITCH is the second full length release by We Drew Lightning. Founding members, Roland Ostheim (vocals, guitars, electronics) and Michael Smith (drums, electronics, saw, vocals) present 12 new tracks in their diverse catalog of songs. The new album continues expanding the bands sound further in dynamics and sonic experiences. The bones of the album were recorded at High Mayhem Studios in the fall of 2011 and early 2012, and finished in the bands own studio and rehearsal space, Ruthless Sweetheart Studio in winter 2012.
We Drew Lightning is also very excited to announce a new addition to the band, Aaron Jenks (keyboards), who recorded on 4 of the tracks on GLITCH, and adds a whole new dimension to the We Drew Lightning live sound! Other musicians also appearing on the album are Carlos Santistevan, Lily Taylor, and Joan Yatsevitch.
The album is available on CD's, download cards, and online (bandcamp, cd baby, itunes).
