New Record - Fall 2013 via Triple Crown Records

Since November 1st, I’ve been cooped up in a cold Chicago rehearsal space with Nick Wakim creating, crafting and redrafting a new set of Into It. Over It. songs. The two of us put in place a new and ever-growing skill set to give this record it’s own feel. Excited about not making the same record twice, I felt this new IIOI project needed a different approach when it came to recording and release.

Enter Triple Crown Records, Brian Deck and Soma Studios in Chicago, IL. 

Triple Crown has been super supportive of everything I’ve been a part of for a few years now. Through a long series of conversations, it was obvious this the most supportive and likeminded home for this new set of songs. 

Brian Deck has recorded some phenomenal records from bands like Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine, Owen, Rex and many more (as well as playing in bands like Red Red Meat and Ugly Cassanova). His background and style were what I felt would be a great fit for the ideas behind this record. Our separate but similar backgrounds really find a perfect balance. 

I can’t wait to tell you guys more about the songs and the process. There is still so much to do. Thanks for everything you guys! I’m really proud of what we’ve been able to create.

Helfrich Garden Profile

In a way you could call it a kitchen garden, and why not? Although there’s not a vegetable to be seen, it was designed while Brian Helfrich was sitting on his usual chair in the kitchen, staring into the backyard, thinking.

  • Wonpil: I'm going to put my A down to make 'A'
  • Jae: I will add onto your A to make 'AT'
  • Dowoon: I'll add onto your AT to make 'RAT'
  • Brian: I will add onto your RAT to make 'BIOSTRATIGRAPHIC'
  • Sungjin [knocks the board onto the floor]: Oh no, tidal wave!

Get ready.

Song Premiere: Into It. Over It, “The Shaking Of Leaves”

Intersections is the latest album by Into It. Over It.Frontman Evan Weiss has been kicking around Chicago’s music scene for years, collaborating with artists on a regional (Mike Kinsella) and national (Daniel Johnston) level. He gets nostalgic with Intersections, whose swirling guitars bring to mind some of the ‘90s Midwestern indie bands he grew up with.

“Brian (Deck) and I really worked on trying to create a soundscape to match the visuals in the lyrics,” he says of the album’s first single, “The Shaking of Leaves.” “I had never tried doing that with any of my songs before. It was incredibly fun, as well as challenging, to shape the music around a single guitar/vocal idea. I think you can hear how much of a blast we were having, despite the song’s serious lyrical content.”
