Last month I put together a band for a single weekend. These are personal friends, fellow VGM musicians I've met over the years (online and in person), and my best friends: Strader and Juja. My career doesn't allow me to be social (so my friends are internet folks) or to go on an actual tour with a 'band', so I came up with the idea of taking my fictional 'band' on a fictional 'tour'.
We all met up for the first time in a recording studio the day before our only show and hit 'record' on our practice session. The intent was to release a fake live 'world tour' album, complete with fake cheering (recorded ahead of time by some of my friends/fans), banter, etc, and mixed like a live album. We spent 5 hours recording 55 minutes of music, and the next 17 hours editing, mixing, mastering, and burning copies of the album so it could be released the night of our big show. We had a lot of fun and this is the product of that weekend. I hope you guys enjoy the fake live album, of the fake tour that never happened, by the fake band that doesn't really exist. I proudly present - The Careless Juja World Tour Live Album!

For more info about how the album is made, sometime that weekend we also recorded an interview with NerdyShow. It's humorous and also provides a bit more insight: https://nerdyshow.com/2017/10/interview-careless-juja/
