The Late Great Next ApX Single Due This Weekend
Fri., Oct. 27. 2017 1:34pm EDT

We'd hoped to release our next single last weekend, but we had to push it back to this weekend. However, that's because of good news rather than bad. It was sounding so good that we wanted to take a little extra time to make it just right.

It's part of our Churchigo series — all-new parodies performed live — but the recording quality is vastly improved, because this time we actually had all the instruments and vocalists individually mic'ed and recorded (including each one of the drums and cymbals), which allowed us to remix them properly.

On previous Churchigo releases, we had to work with whatever was already recorded, either through the mixing board or from the audience, so we had no opportunity to remix and get levels and effects sounding just right, as we would in the studio. Now we can do that, but there are over 60 individual tracks per song, so it's taken a while.

ApX guitarist Wayne Bartley, who also mixes our studio singles, has done a masterful job on these new songs, and we can't wait for you to hear them. We're just making some last-minute tweaks, although they're already the best-sounding recordings by far in this series. And we think you'll love the lyrics.

"Both of these parodies are vertical in nature," says ApX lead singer and lyricist J. Jackson. "They were written to be sung to God, like worship songs. I wrote them from personal experience, so they are very authentic, but I believe most Christians will be able to identify with the sentiments expressed and sing along wholeheartedly."

J. is also a worship leader at New Community Church in Wexford PA, where we played and recorded our 20th and 25th anniversary shows. NCC's worship team is full of talented vocalists and musicians, many of whom have appeared on ApX studio projects, including Elaine Heitzer, Greg Macaluso, John Marcinizyn, Zuli Mason, Rusty Pontiere, and Kenn Lippert.

They're all on this new single, and so is ApX drummer Jimmy "Vegas" Tanner. Both songs were recorded October 8, 2017 at a special concert the team gave featuring the worship leaders, the choir and an 11-piece band, including a full brass section. Once the new single is ready, we'll announce it on our website, Facebook, and Twitter.
