In the autumn of 2018, we recorded our new studio album "August", that will be released in the summer of 2019. During the last two years, we have been writing new music for the album. An intensive and challenging process that brought us closer together not only as a band but also as brothers. "August" will be a ten-chapter long instrumental album inspired on the story of a Flemish fisherman called August who survived over 33 journey's to Iceland and back. But also story's from the road have their part in creating the new music.
Working together as brothers, as a family can be challenging but has the enormous benefit of true honesty during the creative process of making new music and arrangements. Speaking our mind during rehearsals knowing that in the end, we will always be there for each other is something that we hope can be heard in our music. We are so grateful to share the experience of making music together in this life.
The Producer / Jeroen Geerinck
The album will be produced by Jeroen Geerinck. We have admired Jeroen's work from Studio Trad for a long time. He has produced for and worked alongside some of our favorite artists including Hot Griselda, Snaarmaarwaar, Novar to name but a few.
Getting to know Jeroen as a person and working with him on our previous albums during the last 5 years showed us that he fully understands and respects our music. He truly wants this project to be the very best it can be.
The album was recorded in Jeroen's studio in Erpe in Flanders, Belgium. Jeroen has an amazing studio in his home; a place where he knows every square inch of the space and how to get the absolute best sound from it.
Making an album is a very expensive process.
The Kickstarter goal we have set will go towards:
- Production Fees
- Engineer Costs
- Studio Time
- Printing cd's & vinyl
We will be self-funding:
- Remaining guest musician fees
- Promotional videos
If we manage to surpass the Kickstarter goal, anything that comes in will go towards the remaining costs.
In A Nutshell
Since we have been children, We've immersed ourselves in music and we continue to learn from it every day. It's no longer just a hobby or even just a job for us. We are constantly pushing ourselves into places outside of our creative comfort zone to make music that we believe is an honest reflection of the world around us and space within us. We are proud to be Flemish and we are inspired by our culture and region that is the heartland of Europe.
Our goal with music has never been in commercialism or success. Success to us is the hard work and time spent creating art that moves us and moves others.
We hope that you will come with us on this journey and help us make this album by donating to this Kickstarter campaign.
Thank you for reading.
