You Hang Up
You Hang Up
The album was recorded by super-producer Joe Fitz, whose credits include B.o.B’s Grammy nominated The Adventures of Bobby Ray. “Working with Joe has been a great experience. He is an amazing guy personally and professionally,” Muniz says. “The whole tracking process was a lot of fun and very grueling at the same time.
We were tracking pretty much 24 hours a day. Every part of the experience, even the stressful ones, were amazing.” YOU HANG UP began as a solo project for Brown in 2007. After releasing an EP on which he played every instrument himself, Brown realized it was time to surround himself with equally passionate musicians who could bring his vision to fruition. A few lineup shifts later, the current version of YOU HANG UP was assembled.
Since then, says Muniz, it’s been a bit of a fairy tale experience. “It has been amazing. We've already established some die hard fans across the world. We already have some great tour stories and nightmares, but overall, it's just great to have such a positive group of guys that are all on the same page musically.” It’s easy for people unfamiliar with the band’s music to reduce YOU HANG UP to “the band with Frankie Muniz on drums,” or to saddle them with the preconceived notions.
But, Brown says, that same group of people can be the most satisfying to win over. “We always say that our favorite reaction is, ‘I was NOT expecting that at all!’” he says, “Most people are expecting our performance to be a complete trainwreck. But we work hard at creating great music and a great live show, and we hold our own. It is a great feeling to win over new fans.” Read more on Last.fm.
