Recording Infinite Nights

In 2012, Nicky Walsh came into the studio to capture the recording of The Blood Arm‘s fourth album Infinite Nights.

We were tense—the photos show that. It’s awkward to have a stranger come into the studio, but the results were fantastic, and we’re delighted to have these images now.

I hope you enjoy this little peek into our recording process.

Infinite Nights

Happy Birthday to The Blood Arm‘s fourth album “Infinite Nights”- released on this day in 2013! 

Written largely on laptops when we first moved to Berlin, the record took an introspective and experimental turn. There’s something for everybody here- hard rockers, acoustic ballads, bedroom pop and even a surf workout. The album was made in the early days of crowdfunding, and since it was paid for by fans, we still hold it close to our hearts. 

Released via R.I.P. Ben Lee Records , “Infinite Nights” spawned two singles, the guitar-driven “Midnight Moan” and the gonzo-country-romp “Matters of the Heart”. Follow the link in our bio to see the videos for both, directed by Ivan Flugelman . CD copies of this album are still available via The Blood Arm’s website

U8 Concert

In 2012, The Blood Arm held a concert on Berlin’s U8 subway line and played a different song at every stop. This was to promote our album Infinite Nights. Admission was the cost of a ticket. Eventually, the BVG stopped the concert and a small riot ensued. Watch video of it here.
