As well as endless gigging, Pictures Of Shanghai took strong interest developing in the studio. Completing seven studio EPs throughout the life of the band, Pictures Of Shanghai recorded multiple releases with engineer and producer Lester Woodward at Ignition Studios (Finsbury Park/Archway, London). Woodward became hugely influential and key to the development of the band. Pictures Of Shanghai recorded three EPs during 2006, and by the end of the year, began working on their most significant record.

Recorded over seven days, 'Stand Up and Be Proud' (released Jan 07) was the band's most important record. This marked a fourth time with Woodward at Ignition. Mastered by Tim Turan of Turan Audio in Oxford, it was featured on a client list full of prestigious artists, as well as smaller bands that directly inspired the band (Jimmy Eat World, Less Than Jake, underOATH). After playing many dates in London to promote the record, Pictures Of Shanghai gained repeated interest from Fierce Panda Records (Coldplay, Death Cab For Cutie).
