Just So You Know
New decade, new line-up, new release. Morning Lane are about to launch their latest EP, Just So You Know, and they want the world to know about it. 'We are determined to make 2010 a year where we really get our heads down and crack on,' says bass player Ross Butler, adding, "if last year was all about making tough decisions, this year is about putting our money where our mouth is.' Those decisions saw the departure of long time members, guitarist Steve Dourdil and drummer Jean-Marc Valat. Ross and singer Stephen Aravena quickly set about recruiting two new members. First to take a trip down Morning Lane was guitarist John Wilmshurst, injecting a new energy and enthusiasm into the band's sound. Next, Ross called up his old friend, Tristan Hill to fill the vacant drum stool. 'It was something of a baptism of fire," recalls Tristan, "as three weeks later I was on stage with the band supporting The Automatic!' Morning Lane were back, stronger and more determined. First stop was the recording studio. 'Once you know it's working, you just have to capture that energy on tape,' enthuses Stephen. Enlisting the help of legendary Pink Floyd sound engineer, Andy Jackson, the results are a more visceral, muscular sound which reflects the power and intensity of their live shows. "We're very proud of these songs and these recordings" says John, "and we can't wait for people to hear what we've achieved." Just so you know.
