Rocker Lordd Virgil is recording his global, viral hit song “Flint, Michigan” with Sponge producers Andy and Tim Patalan (Sponge, Taproot, Throttlebody). The original viral video for the song has been seen in 60 countries thanks to YouTube and now the rocker is taking the original bedroom-demo version of the song into the studio at The Loft in Saline, Michigan.
“Virtually, the video for ‘Flint Michigan’ did a world tour without me. Hey, what gives?!,” Lordd Virgil said with a laugh. “That video probably has more frequent flyer miles than Richard Branson, but the original song didn't travel much further than the bedroom until now. The least I could do was drive a couple hundred miles and get into the studio to make a proper recording.”

Lordd Virgil (Vocals, rhythm guitar) will be recording the song, and other tracks from the upcoming, as-yet-untitled album, with Mark Stevens (Lead guitar), Rob Johannis (Bass) and Tony Smith (Drums) with help from Andy and Tim Patalan, owners of The Loft, who will engineer the project.
Thanks to social media outlets like YouTube, Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, fans around the world are discovering the video for “Flint, Michigan” several months ago and the tune has now become the song heard around the world.
