2014 was a fun year for False Idle. One of the coolest aspects of last year was releasing a split EP with one of our favorite bands, A Common Goal (https://www.facebook.com/acommongoal), from the Boston, MA area.
For False Idle, the song writing ended up being a long process this time around. It took close to seven or eight months to get the songs completely written and recorded, while A Common Goal had finished recording and mixing their three songs long before we even had our songs close to being written. We had a lot of setbacks throughout the summer, but we pressed on, and ACG never gave up hope that we would actually come through.
Another really cool facet of this span of time is that our good friend, Myles Davis, was there with video camera in hand for a whole lot of it. And now, over the last few weeks, he has taken a lot of his personal time to turn that footage into something that we think is a really good picture of who False Idle is behind the scenes. It takes a really good look at how we work in our own studio, how we give each other a hard time when we're writing music and hanging out, and even a small glimpse behind the scenes at a live show. But in the end, we think it shows how we all come together as a group and get the job done in the end.
We would like to give a HUGE thank you to Myles for putting so much into this video for us.
So, without further adieu, we hope you enjoy "False Idle - A Glimpse at a Split Decision".
