Practice Sessions with Fugitive Underground
During this practice session which I got to sit in on and get a bit of footage the guys were working on their set for their upcoming back to back shows. This was their last practice before their first show and they were still adding new ideas and movements to most of their songs. For the most part they had all of the instrumental aspects of the songs down minus a couple of timing issues which they were working on as they went through their set list.
The probably have the best set up for practicing that I have ever seen as it takes place in a private studio which has its own private drum room. Normally they play their instruments plugged in so the sounds go through in ear monitors but tonight they turned on the amps. I couldn’t believe the difference which the drum sound room made, while I was standing in the drum room I thought my ear drums were going to pop yet when I stood on the other side of the glass the volume was perfectly fine.
There was little time for joking around as they were on a tight schedule to get everything they needed to get down pat down but that still didn’t stop them from making a few instrumental leads from other songs during a lead in or an ending including an Aerosmith drum solo. To finish off their nightly practice Ryan and Bill started to get the finishing moves down at the end of their set.
