Flashlight EP details

we recorded this new ep completely on our own, similar to how we did our first ep "Follow the Dove," except this time around each band member recorded their individual parts at their home studio...which in some cases just meant GarageBand. then we compiled all the tracks onto one computer and had our go-to mixer Robin Holden mix and master. we are very pleased with the results.


1. Burning Bridges On Purpose
2. Chance
3. Flashlight
4. Man Overboard
5. Let's Suffer Together

we wrote most of these these songs around the end of 2009. "Man Overboard" is the only exception - being one of the first songs we wrote when the band started. we recorded a new version of it that sounds warm and fits in well with the new material.

this will be a digital-only release (no physical copies will be made). the company that puts our music on iTunes didn't give us a release date - should be out in about 3 weeks though. we'll definitely keep you in the loop.

  1. Fantastical song! Love it! Thank you for making it available for a free download (some of us are strugglin' out here to make a buck, ya know!). Will you all be keeping the Castledoor name? My friend suggested that your new band name should be "Minus Two"...just thought I'd pass that along. Still love you guys! Keep up the rock and DON'T GIVE UP THE SHIP!

  2. I still don't understand how no one has picked you guys [and gal(formally gals)] up for a deal yet..
    I know it's explained in detail in the January post but seriously?
    I agree, though, that making such great music with the simple-ist of "pro" tools is badass..
    Makes for a greater appreciation
    and a higher level of respect

    Don't stop ya'll

  3. Tasty track. Thanks. Hope to see you all soon.

  4. Day 1 buy! Looking forward to it!

  5. i miss castledoor shows :(

  6. Your post sucks. Mines better! ..lol. Just kidding.
    Just getting into this blogging thing myself, though I don't think anyone actually reads my posts. Does it come easier with time?
