PRODUCER WILL YIP TO RELEASE COMPILATION

FEATURING TITLE FIGHT, CIRCA SURVIVE, AND MANY OTHERS

PROCEEDS WILL BE USED AS PARTIAL PAYMENT ON STUDIO 4

OFF THE BOARD: A STUDIO 4 FAMILY COMPILATION AVAILABLE 10/8

 

Multi-genre producer and engineer WILL YIP will be releasing Off The Board: A Studio 4 Family Compilation on October 8th, 2013 featuring un-released and EXCLUSIVE songs from a slew of bands all recorded and mixed at Studio 4 including:

 

Title Fight, Circa Survive, Balance and Composure, Man Overboard, Citizen, Turnover, Daylight, Koji, Tigers Jaw, Polar Bear Club, Dead End Path, Sainthood Reps, Mongoloids, None More Black, Light Years, Pity Sex, and Anthony Green.

 

“This comp represents everything that I’ve done in the past ten years of my life,” explains Yip. Proceeds are being used for a down payment toward his partnership in the legendary Studio 4 located in Conshohocken, PA. “I want to give the punk, hardcore, and alternative community of awesome bands a home,” he adds.

 

By entering into a partnership with studio owner and Grammy Award-winning producer Phil Nicolo (Bob Dylan, Bon Jovi, The Fugees, Sting) it enables Yip to work with the bands that he loves, no matter the budget. “The only thing that ever mattered was how much I love the music,” describes Yip. “I always want to produce bands that I like, but most of the time those budgets aren’t close to prior Studio 4 budgets. This studio always produced big records in a big studio environment, an experience that most bands in our indie scene historically never had. By owning the studio, I’ll be able to accept nearly any budget instead of worrying about having to pay a large rental overhead. I have the once in a lifetime opportunity to not only continue the Studio 4 legacy, but to also make this classic studio a home to our community of the best bands in the world.”

 

Unlike any other compilation,Off The Board: A Studio 4 Family Compilation was recorded, mixed, and mastered at the same studio by one person - Will Yip which gives it the feel of an album due to the consistency of the mixing, mastering, and studio gear. Also, most of the songs were specifically written for this project.

 

The album is being released on limited edition colored vinyl (500 red / 500 green), black vinyl (2,000), and CD. THERE WILL ONLY BE 1 PRESSING OF THE RECORD! In addition, it’ll be available worldwide digitally. Additional pre-order items include vinyl test presses, exclusive t-shirts, signed and numbered prints of the album art by Circa Survive guitarist Colin Frangicetto, autographed drum sticks/heads that were used in sessions, and one of a kind interactive experiences such as bowling with Will Yip and Circa Survive, group studio tour, be a fly on the wall during a session, and an all-day recording clinic.

In addition, fans will be able to purchase tickets for the inaugural Studio 4 Sessions featuring Anthony Green with special guests Tigers Jaw on September 20th and 21st. Different from other intimate stripped-down sessions, it will be fully interactive with Q&A throughout the entire show. Most of all, everyone in attendance will receive a copy of the session on CD.

 

At the mere age of 14, Will Yip started off his recording career working with local bands as an apprentice under Chris Grillo at Ground Control Recording in Northeast Philadelphia. After he learned the basics, he bought some of Chris’ old gear and began recording in his parent’s basement. Fortunately, he was able to fine-tune his skills and land a job at Studio 4, which is one of the last of its kind with Neve and SSL consoles. Over the past 30 years Studio 4 has produced countless platinum, gold, and Grammy-winning records and even housed the most successful indie record label of all-time – Ruffhouse Records. Today, he’s one of the most sought after producers in both the local and indie music scenes. His project Off The Board: A Studio 4 Family Compilation is being released on October 8th, 2013 and will be available for a limited time.

I was wondering if we're gonna be able to listen to any of the tracks before we actually buy the CD. I just don't wanna pay $10 for a CD just for the 2 Circa and AG songs with a whole bunch of other songs I'm not gonna be all to keen on.

i do know that they released "Tigers Jaw - Carry You Over" from the album.

http://thekey.xpn.or...dio-4-tomorrow/

and "None More Black - The Thing That Separates Em"

http://www.brooklynv...re_black_1.html [looks like this song isn't there anymore]

 

plus the digital download release has 3 extra tracks for a total of 18.

making it like 55 cents a track. not bad.

 

im gonna stimulate the economy.

Well, so far what I'm hearing is pretty legit, are you gonna put the Circa and AG tracks up to listen to? It would help me make a final decision if I should buy it or not, considering I only have about 60 dollars to spent at the moment. But if you don't put em' up, I completely understand.

yeah i get money's tight. yr not alone on that.

i'm not putting them up. im not the band. im just some guy.

i never put up anything that can be purchased out of decency/respect.

 

im kinda doubting that theyll officially put them up anywhere.

though it's very possible that someone will up them on tumblr/youtube/blog or whatnot.

 

nowadays, i kind of expect that.

The compilation is good even if I dont dig the Circa song at all really. The Anthony Green song is worth the $10 alone, its really beautiful.

Oh, just making sure you know its ok to not like something from a fav. band lol. Some people think you can't dislike something from an artist you like

No I havent, just curious what type of sound the band went for with this song.. might be indicative on what they are leading towards LP5 or it could just be a song they wanted to do with no strings attach sort of thing

Not digging the Circa track at all.. the comp overall is killer, though. Definitely worth 10 bucks, especially for a good cause like Will Yip.

Umm I really think the songs just a one off for them, kindof like a fun to play garage type song. Its really alternative sounding with all strummed chord progressions throughout with some wah pedal leads.

Yeah, i just heard it. I don't like how alternative they sound.. maybe this uproar tour is telling us something... disappointing

Yeah theres very little I enjoy in the alternative rock genre its really oversaturated. I dont think this should be indicative of any of their future work though. I hope at least.
