In an attempt to digitalise our older releases and to put them online for anyone to purchase or download we’ve now uploaded our 2005 release “A Depraved Scent” on to Bandcamp, have a listen here. We’ve uploaded one track of this album on to our Soundcloud page, Looming strain. More uploads of older releases soon.
The 9th of may we’ve played a show at Loophole Berlin. It was great fun. A lovely and sympathetic concert place with nice and frendly people. We’ll be back next year.
Allso started working on a small Europe autum tour, mainly focussed on Belgium and France, in october 2013. It’s supposed to happen inbetween the 10th and the 27th. Confirmed shows so far: the 10th: Worm, Rotterdam, Holland. 11th: Les Atelier Claus, Brussels, Belgium. 13th: 41 Tapis Vert, Marseille, France. 16th: Cave 12, Geneva, Switserland. 19th: L’atelier de L’Etoile, Besancon. Options for the 23th: Athenee Libertaire, Bordeaux, France and the 25th: Croxhapox, Gent, Belgium. Still working hard on more dates (maybe Paris, Nantes and Metz to be added). Obviously we’re open for suggestions and offers. More details in the upcoming moths.
We’ve finished the new recording fase in the studio last december 2012 for another new release at the end of this year or maybe the beginning of next year. It’s gonna be a combination of recordings we’ve just made and the audio footidge of a recording stage in France last july with our mobil recording device. Hopefully it’s gonna be the realisation of a longtime dream we have, creating a fullscale instrumental piece of work. Mixing will probably start in april. We’ll keep you informed.
