In the next EPisode, we dEPloy an album sample that will sweEP you off your feet!

Let’s admit that the title probably kEPt you on the edge of your seat. We are excited to announce that our sample EP from our upcoming album is #finished, #amazing, and #nofilter!

This week we slaved over a hot mixing board (well, the engineer did) and brought life to the most beautiful tuneage known to man. In just 4 days, this EP has cured ebola, unveiled KFC’s 11 herbs and spices, and won a FULL game of monopoly; and it isn’t even released yet!

Now, surely you would like to know were to get your hands on this holy grail of a compact disc? Stay tuned as we will soon reveal the EP’s tracklist and offer links to stream it for free! (or buy it if you’re a gentleman and a scholar).

Just saying; we’re more excited than this puppy is

Studio Session #5

So as you may or may not know, we have been hard at work recording our first full-length LP! We chose to record at Phoenix’s studio oasis, SaltMine Studio. This is where Lil’ Wayne recorded his platinum “Tha Carter” album. Since Lil’ Wayne has been such a great inspiration on our guitar work, we’re hoping to channel his energy for this album!

This labor day we finished recording James’ vocals for “The Villain”, “Whisper On My Radio” and “Alaska”. These songs are sounding so killer it’s ridiculous! James drank 2 gallons of water and downed 1.5 bears of honey in one day while recording these vocals. That means that maximum moisture and premium rockitude was attained!

Stay tuned for our upcoming LP. We still have 6 more days to polish up this bad boy and drop it on your doorstep with a love letter and a dozen roses.

A little about James Mills:

Born and raised in Tucson, Arizona, James learned to play guitar and sing in 2004 and started writing music immediately. Now he is a multi-instrumentalist skilled in guitar, vocals, piano, bass, drums / percussion, composition, and audio production. His musicianship has been a key part of the several bands he has started and performed in. Over the years, James has had the opportunity to share the stage with such icons as Weezer, The Aggrolites, Authority Zero, The Slackers, Badfish, Strung Out, Scotty Don’t, Ryanhood, Angels & Airwaves, The Frantic, and The Jealous Sound. In 2005, he formed a ska-punk group called Evil Fudd, which played shows regularly and gained a great deal of attention and prestige in Tucson. Evil Fudd’s music was featured on 92.1FM KFMA91.3FM KXCI, and 103.9FM KDGE. He released his first album in 2008, which sold 750 physical copies and numerous ITunes downloads. Shortly thereafter, he played guitar with Weezer at the Arizona State Fair, joined by Angels and Airwaves. After Evil Fudd’s hiatus in 2009, James played guitar and backing vocals in a few other punk / ska bands, and opened for Sublime tribute group BadFish. At this point, James realized that he couldn’t be in any band position other than lead singer / songwriter. Using songs he had been writing since Evil Fudd’s hiatus in 2009, James formed Retro Future as an extension of his solo career. The band has been featured on 91.3FM KXCI and has received contract proposals from record labels. In 2013, James graduated from the University of Arizona with a marketing degree, and released his second album with Evil Fudd. Upon moving to Phoenix in January of 2014, James was contacted by People Who Could Fly to audition for the part of lead vocals. The band’s chemistry has been stellar, and the tight instrumentation of PWCF has been the perfect compliment to James’ dedication, energy and performance.

James’ influences include The PixiesWeezerAt the Drive-InJaguar LoveThe KillersMuse, and Phoenix.
