In the Fall
Recording for Dagger or a Dram's second album began back in early December with the tracking of the drums and bass at Post Colonial Studios in West Bridgewater. Guitar and keyboard overdubs were recorded in late December and early January at the equally comfortable Acton branch of Post Colonial Records. Although the majority of the vocals were recorded at Berklee College of Music with the help of Kevin Gundlach of Sizzlechest, some additional vocals were recorded at Post Colonial Records. The second album will be titled In the Fall and include 6 original songs and an additional remix featuring Asleep in a Box. The CD was mixed at Post Colonial Records and mastered at MWorks in Cambridge, MA. 'Dagger or a Dram's new record 'In The Fall' is not only a departure from the band's 2007 here we are Debut '9' but also a new beginning for chief songwriter Tommy McKnight, Co-producer James Chiarelli, Chris Phillips, Arthur Chaillou, Drew Fincke, & Jesse Norris. Important hometown and party anthems such as 'Streets' & 'Stoned, Drunk & Dead' are replaced with just as important and even more urgent songs such as the southern gospel-like "Come One & Come All" The album's heartfelt lament is built around 'Wrecking Ball' a song that pulls the listener in and flows perfectly into the uplifting and retrospective 'Call Me.'' -Mark Kaye Hear Now Live.
