Converse Rubber Tracks Is Sending Bands from Across the Globe to the Industry’s Most Iconic Recording Studios
From Abbey Road in London to Tuff Gong in Kingston, some of the finest studios in existence are hosting a select group of young bands for a two-week period.
The future just got a lot brighter for eighty-four different bands in twenty-eight different countries.
After receiving over 9,000 submissions, Converse Rubber Tracks has selected the winners for their global studio takeover from September 14–28, during which some of the best engineers and producers in the business will host and guide sessions for up-and-coming groups. The studios participating in the event are of the most sought-after and historic locales in music history, including London’s Abbey Road, Tuff Gong in Kingston, Vancouver’s The Warehouse Studio, Los Angeles’ Sunset Sound, Berlin’s Hansa Tonstudio, Atlanta’s Stankonia, as well as the two Converse Rubber Tracks studios in Brooklyn and Boston. And the best part? After recording within the same walls that have housed the likes of The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, the bands will retain all the rights to the music created.
The diverse list of acts chosen to take advantage of the opportunity ranges from Peru’s Chico Unicornio to Melbourne’s Reptiles to Seattle’s Smokey Brights. You can check out a full list of the lucky bands on the Rubber Tracks site.
