WATCH: Converse Rubber Tracks Sets Up New Home in Boston

There's nothing like that new studio smell.

This morning, Converse announced that its brand-new Rubber Tracks studio in Boston, Massachusetts, would be opening on July 1. The state-of-the-art recording space couldn’t be any closer to the heart of Boston—located right across the street from the TD Garden (home of the Bruins and the Celtics)—and we got a sneak peek.

Beyond being on the water at Boston’s Lovejoy Wharf (unfortunately not named after that one) with stellar views of the city, the CRT studio blew us away with its innovative and effective designs (by legendary studio architect Fran Manzella). Most of the recording studios that we’ve been invited to are dark, smell like a dank locker room, and usually have a lava lamp in the corner…

After having just completed an international Rubber Tracks artist recruitment effort with over ten-thousand submissions, we’re sure that this newest addition to Boston’s creative community will have no shortage of new and unsigned bands who will be lucky enough to record in this awesome space (and conveniently let Converse pick up the tab).
