“Too Dry To Cry” is a brand new song by Josh Fischel & The Fiction. A different version of it will be on their upcoming album. “The plan is to record it acapella, with a gospel choir backing me up” says Josh Fischel when asked about the song. It was recorded back in May of 2011 at Fork & Spoon Studios in Long Beach, CA. It was done in the studio in one take with no overdubs.
