New York, NY – Freshkills entered the studio just before the holiday break to record their third album with drummer Jim Sclavunos of Bad Seeds/Grinderman fame producing. Jim is also responsible for producing the first Horrors and has earned an incredible reputation over the past 20 years drumming along Nick Cave in both the Bad Seeds and Grinderman. The band joined Jim on December 15th at Andrew Schneider’s studio where, basically, the entire Hydrahead Records catalog has been recorded.
In addition to working on a new album, the band scored themselves a slot opening up for Boston’s legendary Mission of Burma at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC on Friday, January 29th.
Freshkills is comprised of lead vocalist Zachary Lipez, guitarists Johnny Rauberts and Timothy Murray, bassist Mishka Shubaly and drummer Jim Paradise.
