I want to know why they picked Chain though. The sound at Chain is GARBAGE. I understand that it'll sound better coming from the board, but still, Glasshouse would have let double the amount of people, and it would have actually sounded good to those in attendance.. whatever, at noon tomorrow I'll be cursing my phone for being to slow on 3G when tickets sell out in 20 seconds. Least I saw them for the Sticks and Stones tour..
PS: Wonder who the openers are gonna be. Guessing Seahaven might be one again, they're local and damn good.
They probably want that "small venue" feel for the recording. And they know what it'll look like there since tons of stuff gets recorded at Chain.
