VERBEUREN, who recorded eleven songs over four days, said about the project: “It was a great experience tracking drums to Jeff’s awesome songs. I didn’t receive all of the material beforehand, so the spontaneity was energizing. I’m in love with the Tama Superstar kit we got in for the occasion, it sounded truly amazing. Musically speaking, I think Jeff stepped it up big time on this record. Lots of inspired, diverse music and mindblowing fretwork to look forward to!”
The album is produced by Aaron Smith (7 Horns 7 Eyes) and set for release in the Spring of 2012.
