Hell of a Ride is the first song we completed for the record. Matt did the initial demo for it – a garage band loop with an acoustic guitar and a vocal over it.
He sent it to me, and I was actually leaving to travel out to Utah. I have a little portable studio I take with me whenever I travel. It’s my laptop, a little 25 key midi keyboard, my acoustic guitar, and the interface. I kept having Matt’s original demo going through my head and the lead just started to stick with me. After letting it brew in my head for a few days I sat down and banged out a second version of the tune. I did whole thing in a few hours.
When we first started talking to JK and Dan about recording together we told them we wanted to do six songs. They said “let’s do one song and see what you all think.” We went with Hell of a Ride. We got the final mix back and said “Let’s do more songs this sounds fucking awesome.”
