The Honored Guests recorded their new album, Tastes Change, at The Cabin, their studio on the outskirts of their hometown, Chapel Hill, NC. Tastes Change features The Guests' love for textured simplicity along with sensible experimentation. Recorded over the course of 6 months, while touring on and off, the band has come to a balance between what seems interesting and what seems exciting. After their inception in the fall of 2003, the band first toured as the three piece of Russell Baggett (vocals/guitar), Jeremy Buenviaje (bass), and Andrew Kinghorn (drums). Patrick O'neill (keys/guitar) was added to the band in late 2005 to flesh out the more adventurous parts of the Guests' sound. Tastes Change is a marked difference from the band's 2004 debut, Iawokeinacityasleep. The more straight forward pop of Iawoke enlisted the help of Robert Sledge (formerly of Ben Folds Five) to co-produce and make sure the engineering was sound. Iawokeinacityasleep's appeal was proven by it's airplay on over 150 college radio stations nationwide, including 13 stations that charted the record. Iawoke also spent 4 consecutive months on the RIYL music charts and got the Guests the featured slot at an ASCAP Showcase sponsored by Myspace. The band continues to tour religiously, already having supported such acts as Longwave (RCA), Midtown (Columbia), Straylight Run (Victory), Hot Rod Circuit (Vagrant), Cub Country (Jade Tree/Future Farmer), Armor For Sleep (Equal Vision), Valient Thorr (Volcom), The Working Title (Universal), Say Anything (J Records), plus many others. The band plans to tour throughout the rest of 2006 and into 2007 to every corner of the U.S. Tastes Change was released May 2nd, 2006 on Breakfast Mascot Records.
