Again, it's been a while since I found the time to update the blog, for which I apologise. As ever a combination of general apathy towards all things digital, and focusing more on actually preparing to record the actual album has been of paramount importance. More so than joining the ranks of the deluded on the world wide web who seem self obsessed and assured of their own importance in the grand cosmic scheme.
It gives me great pleasure to announce that we begin recording the "WHITE HORSE HILL" album on June 2nd, we have no idea what the final result will be, but expect to be finished at some point early August with the CD, Cassette and download versions all appearing around the same time. Of course, vinyl will be ordered straight away too, but with production turn around times varying, there can be no definite release date.
The final tracklisting of the album will run as follows :
Under Waves Lie Our Dead
To Sol A Thane
White Horse Hill
For All Days
Beheld, A Man Of Straw
We expect a final run time of around 44 Minutes, the record being primarily written for vinyl, so care and attention has also been paid to the track order, length and song dynamics. For those of you purchasing the CD version, we will add three bonus tracks in the form of last years "TO SOL A THANE" pre-production demo.
Again, all the the artwork has been created by Chris Smith of Grey Aria studios, three full pieces, and the finished LP's will be housed in a tri-fold sleeve designed to maximize the impact of each individual piece of artwork.
In the meantime, you can listen to our final rehearsal teaser on youtube.
