The story of The Preservation is much like the story of Austin music itself: a melting pot of influences from different parts of the country creating something musically unique and genuine. The Preservation officially formed in November of 2009 and have proven to be an ambitious and accomplished group in the short time since. They recorded and released a demo that Winter and went on tour for 12 straight weeks in the Summer of 2010. In February of 2011, they recorded at Public Hi-Fi in Austin, a studio built by Spoon drummer/producer Jim Eno. The album was co-produced and engineered by Brad Bell, a recent Grammy winner for his work on Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs.
