Sometimes all you need is a fresh guitar strap to finish off the vibe. So should I rock this for a little something we have going on this weekend? -J @fender @ernieball #fender #fenderstratocaster #guitar #guitarist

Fun fact about Space Angels: During the writing of the song, we struggled for quite a while on nailing down the proper opening, trying several different approaches, none of which felt right. It was at that point that Steve suggested we unearth an unused sequence from back in the day (2002-2003 era), originally entitled Sendoff to the Stars, which was going to be part of a concept album called Starcrossed. That album never materialized, but the opening four-on-the-floor and offset hi-hat groove, with the accompanying distorted bass and 2600 sine keyboard lines, always remained one of our favorite passages. We consider it an incredible stroke of luck, that nearly 20 years later, that opening sequence would fit so neatly into the beginning of Space Angels (and transition so beautifully from the end of Singularity)! It was waiting for us all these years. Any of you ever create something that you think will never see the light of day, only to be surprised by its return much later?

As I was jamming and working on a few riffs for the next EP, it kind of hit me all at once that tomorrow we're finally releasing Transist. In a way, we can say that this has been 20 years in the making. Liquideyes was released in 2001. We've had a lot of ups and downs. There have been sparks here and there over this long period of time, where we'd start but then put things on hold. But after all these years and a lot of hard work, it's happening. Tomorrow we finally and truly arrive, and it feels like a new beginning. Sure, we had a first album under our belt, but this feels real to me. This is "the big time." Transist is our best work yet, and I'm incredibly proud of what we're about to reveal to the world. I honestly feel like where we are now -- with our mindset, our motivation, and our passion -- we're just getting started. For the long-time old school fans out there, we're sorry for the delay... but this is worth it! For future fans, new fans, anyone that jumps on for the ride -- thanks for listening. I really hope you enjoy Transist. The creative juices are in full force, and we're here to make music for a long time to come!

Sometimes you develop a special connection to an instrument. This @rickenbackerofficial 4003 was my first love. My dad bought me this beauty in early 1992, after I outgrew a cheap starter bass and wanted something with a little more personality. I remember seeing a picture of Geddy Lee playing an old Ric in the liner notes to All the World’s a Stage—that’s where the fascination began for me. My own “Number One” has seen many ups and downs. It was the only bass I used on Liquideyes, after which I removed the pickup cover and briefly flirted with the idea of attaching a MIDI pickup to it. Don’t worry—the bass forgave me. Years later, when I decided it really did deserve some TLC, I bought some replacement parts and added a #TubeAmpology Treble Bezel (with the Cove thumb cutout), and I’ve treated it like royalty ever since. Though it has its share of scars, I was thrilled to bring it out again and use it during the recording of Transist, on a track called Veil of Stars… which incidentally ended up being one of my favorites on the new album. What about you? What was the first instrument (or artist) that captured your imagination? —Ruben
