Funeral Party Tap Ozomatli Drummer To Guest On Their Album
Funeral party will be working again with producer Lars Stalfors , the engineer on the most recent Mars Volta full-length album "The Bedlam in Goliath." Lars also produced Funeral Party's debut EP "Bootleg." They will be recording at a Los Angeles studio where Mars Volta frequently rehearses and records their material.
Also joining the band in the studio is special guest drummer Alfredo Ortiz, current drummer for Latin rock-band Ozomatli,
(contrary to what Funeral Party's label says, former Wallflowers drummer Mario Calire holds that honor in Ozomatli. Alfredo only played percusion with them early in their career),
and the studio drummer for the popular Beastie Boys.
The full-length record will be a follow up to Funeral Party's three track EP "Bootleg," which was released in November of 2008 and features the tracks, Carwars, NYC Moves to the Sound of LA, and Chalice.
