Oklahoma City’s favorite hardcore outfit Harp & Lyre have hit the studio to record their first full length record after a pair of successful EPs. Recording with Matt McClellan at Glow in the Dark Studios in Atlanta, GA, Harp & Lyre have graciously shared their thoughts on the process with Ampmagazine.com. Vocalist Tyler Carder is just as much focused on the fans of Harp & Lyre as he is on the process itself:

“We would like everyone to know how appreciative we are in all of the support and encouragement we’ve received in the last few years. Our fans are some of the best and we are happy for them to be so involved in what we are doing. I’m not sure our fans realize how vital they are in what Harp has accomplished and it would be silly not to recognize the impact they have had on us.”

The new record is slated for early 2012.

If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
