Hollowing Horns

Back in December I recorded some horn tracks on the upcoming Hollows record with Gerald Bailey aka Charles Mantis.

BrooklynVegan just did an interview with the Hollows and premiered their new song “V is For Vulture”. Nice horn fanfare at the end!

The record will be released April 10th via Trouble In Mind Records.
