Fans Encouraged to Remix Railroad Earth Online

Railroad Earth’s (RRE) new album,  Amen Corner (released on June 10), brings music appreciation to the next level with its RRE-Mix interactive feature. The band’s latest self-produced album goes a step beyond the traditional "purchase and listen," and will now allow fans to digitally remix three of the album’s tracks through their personal computer, with the help of some simple editing software.
 "Since we recorded this whole album ourselves, and since more and more people own computers with audio recording and mixing capability, we thought it might be fun to give fans a whack at some of the individual tracks from our new record to play with on their own time," said Johnny Grubb, RRE bassist, who also wrote the easy-to-follow tutorial included with the downloads.From an album that truly showcases Railroad Earth’s remarkable songwriting and uniquely crafted arrangements, comes the innovative RRE-Mix feature, which will allow the band to engage its fans in a new and interactive way. Amen Corner was written and recorded at singer/songwriter, Todd Sheaffer’s, 300 year-old house in New Jersey’s rural countryside, and was the experience of a lifetime for the band’s members. The non-traditional recording setting resulted in a collection of songs that truly resonate with the energy of what the band was experiencing during and around the sessions.
 This idea of allowing fans to partake in the music creating and mixing process crosses a relatively new frontier in the music industry. To help fans navigate, the band has provided basic tutorials about how to use mixing software…as well as a free downloadable online program with a relatively easy to use interface. RRE-Mix is designed for individuals at all levels of digital mixing ability to enjoy.
