I’m a little fan girl of Kris Crummet. He has produced some of my most favoritest records of the last decade (including Dance Gavin Dance, Emarosa, Man Overboard, Bizzy Bone!!!!, and A Lot Like Birds). I remember reading an article about the making of Emarosa’s 2010 album, how the band opted to use Brian McTernan for that go-around rather than Kris, and Jonny Craig was so adverse to this that he actually left the band on the east coast with Brian and flew back to the west coast to record his vocals with Kris. (But I mean, it’s Jonny, so it’s not like this is too surprising.)
Naturally, I follow Kris on Instagram and Twitter because I like to keep up with his career; he’s a cool guy! So when he began posting about the upcoming Artifex Pereo album he was working on, my interest was piqued. The snippets he and the band were sharing of the process sounded SO GOOD.
Artifex Pereo just signed with Tooth & Nail and I’m so stoked for their upcoming album that I just now pre-ordered it. %^%*$%^*$, MUSIC!! Seriously guys, don’t ever stop buying it. Maybe give a little less to the Katy Perrys of the music scene and a little more to these bands that could actually use the support. I drank way too much coffee again.
