Here is what I found on their Facebook page :)
"Hello everybody !
We traveled all day from Lausanne to Wales to reach to magnificient Monnow Valley studio where we're about to start the recording of our next album. We're working with the great Andrew Scheps and cannot wait to begin the takes tomorrow."
Favez is SO damned good! I saw them open a show for Brandtson when they toured the States back in 2000 (@ the Fireside Bowl, Chicago, IL) , for Gentlemen, Start Your Engines, and they were phenomenal. I remember talking with them at the merch. table after they played, and we were all asking them why they chose to sing in English, instead of German, and I'll never forget the response "well, to us, rock is an American invention...it'd be almost sacrilegious to us, to sing it in any other language." I was like "fuckin' A right, bro!" hahahaha
