Behind-the-Scenes Video: Inside The Converse Rubber Tracks Studio
We all know that Converse makes awesome sneakers (no exaggeration, our own Axl Rosenberg hasn’t worn any other brand since roughly 2004), but did you know that they also have a recording studio in Brooklyn… which they allow bands to use 100% FREE of charge? It’s true! Converse Rubber Tracks is a state of the art recording studio, complete with its own qualified sound engineers and too much equipment to even list here, that can be used by musicians of any genre to record their own music for FREE, the rights to which they completely retain. It sounds too good to be true… and yet, it’s a really real thing!
This summer, MetalSucks teamed up with Converse Rubber Tracks to give five talented metal bands the opportunity to record in the studio for a day absolutely free charge — and be featured right here on MetalSucks! Those bands — Axeslasher from Denver, White Widows Pact from Brooklyn, Ruby The Hatchet from Philly, Torrential Downpour from New Jersey, and No Salvation from Massachusetts — all did some truly kick-ass work during their time at Converse Rubber Tracks, and we’ll be debuting the songs on MetalSucks all through next week. We can’t wait to share the results with you… and to get the ball rolling, below we have the first of two videos created by our friends at Metal Injection, who documented this entire process. This first clip focuses on the beautiful facilities and equipment housed at Converse Rubber Tracks, as well as the studio’s top-notch staff. Enjoy:
