Band ‘The Ultramods’ Releases First Album Recorded in GarageBand for iPad

I wondered how long it would take for someone to release a song or album that had been recorded using GarageBand for the iPad. Well, not even a month after its launch, pop punk band The Ultramods are the first to record all instruments and vocals for their 12-track album using the $4.99 application.

In an interview with The Loop, the band – which writes “pervy pop punk” and “technologically obsessed new wave” music – said that all of the instruments used on the album were those included in the GarageBand app.

If you’d like to hear their album, ‘Underwear Party’ is now available in the iTunes Store for $10, or you can listen for free on the band’s website.

Though The Ultramods are the first to record an album with GarageBand, English band Gorillaz announced back in November that their upcoming album ‘The Fall’ was recorded entirely on an iPad using a range of third-party apps. The album was released to the band’s fan club in December, and is currently available for pre-order through iTunes with an expected release date of April 19th.

    The link to the bands website doesn’t work. Can you fix that? I’d like to check it out.

    The correct link is http://www.theultramods.com but i wouldn’t go out of your way to listen to it!
    Especially if you are easily offended!

    I’m not easily offended and I’m interested to hear what they did with Garageband.

    Edited: That’s pretty cool I must say. Interested to see what others do with it in the future.

    Wow, great story. Next time let us hear about a good band that made an album entirely on an iPad with garageband. If you support this band, then you should do as most cults do and just drink the koolaid with rat poison.
