2015! OMVF!

Been a while! Seems that on the last time we were talking about the animation video. So it was done and put out about a year ago. And few days ago I got a message from Oulu Music Video Festival that our video "Earth Of Life" is part of the festival in August. How cool is that! At least it will be shown from the screen at Snooker Time or at Valve, more info to come about that. Before that check it out if you haven't already:

After East-Rock we played a gig with the amazing TOOT TOOT and another with AlfaKalle and award-winning accordionist Ukko-Pekka Yliranta. Great stuff.
Maybe more talks about making of the video later if someone's interested.
See ya at OMVF!

2nd coming

Alright, we're back! And our soooooon was about 6 months, haha. But it's okay since the new single is now recorded & mixed and we're about to release it as soon as the mastering and music video are done. The estimated due date is Friday 13th June. The music video will be done diy way (of course) and it will be stop motion animation which I've been dreaming of doing for years. So watch out for that! Check out the teaser video from studio:

The special gig mentioned earlier took place in Salla, Lapland at an event called East-Rock 2014. The line-up was the most awkward we've played so far: first there were us, then a strongly political hardcore/punk band from Northern Finland, next a pretty basic rock trio from Rovaniemi and finally this famous little Finnish rapper called Uniikki. But it was great experience as the crowd consisted of mostly 6-10 year old boys and girls, some of them probably heard live music for the first time.

You can watch the whole show here:

So that's about it for now. Remember to check out the summer single & video next week!

Final update (of the year, again!)

Well that was the year 2013. It was actually our busiest year so far, at least concerning concerts. After the last update, we played "Nuke" for the 4th time (hails to headliner The Grand Astoria!) and then Ravintola Caio in 8th December.

As said earlier, we surely played one new tune live a few times. And we're actually heading for the studio to record it, if possible, before the end of the year! So prepare yourselves for some bizarreness!

We're also going to publish our next gig soon. It will be very special event, I promise!

Btw, here's a collage from the "summer tour":

So have a good new year and we'll get back to you sooooon!

More gigs and stuff

So we played Ykän pub and the night was success, Talbot proved their brilliancy once again and Earthbound Machine played superb set as well! After that our trek continued to a mystical festival called Syynirock on 19th July. We had great time and apparently some people enjoyed our music and especially our special t-shirts! There's still some canvas bags left and they'll be available on our shows. Our next stop and the final gig for our "10th anniversary concert tour" is at Nuclear Nightclub on 31th July.

And lastly, the third and final cassette pressing is finally ready. It's numbered with insert and impressive 75 minutes of bonus material. It consists of DBO's remixed debut album "Red Lines Re-Entwined", original mix for the demo plus one surprise tune. You can purchase that also at our gig or via email. Price tag is 5 euros.

See you!

Gig + new material

Our next gig is at Ykän pub in Oulu 24.5. warming up the great Estonian fellows of Talbot. They play bone crushing heavy music with drums & bass. Also Earthbound Machine from Helsinki will be performing. Besides the classics we will play one brand new tune, so be sure to be there!

And what comes to our second release, the core material is already written. Now we need to practice hugely and maybe tweak some arrangements but I think we will be ready for studio by the end of summer. Or by the end of 2013, at the latest! I can reveal that there might be slight Mew influences, at least in some way. We both love that unique Danish band and have even played a bit of Introduing the Palace Players live one time.

That's it for now. Later! -Jani

Back from the silence!

Howdy there!

Been a long time. I guess we didn't make any history in year 2012 - at least with this band. But something happened, we released an EP with our other band Depth Beyond One's, Jarru moved to Tampere, we jammed a few tunes at my wedding party (drums+bass), my other band Clock Paradox released its debut album and Jarru moved back to Oulu.

And now since the whole band is in town, we can start to practice new material. I won't reveal our plans yet, but I promise it'll get interesting! We have also a gig coming in summer at the local happening called Syynirock. And 3rd cassette pressing of "sub specie aeternitatis" is almost ready. Very limited stuff! More info on that stuff here:

Till next time

Final update! (of the year)

Well well. I don't know if anyone reads this but here we go. Many things have happened since the last entry. I'd like to sum up this fruitful year with following words:

First of all, our first gig outside Oulu since 2004 happened in Kemijärvi, at KeloStock festival July 2nd. It was a great evening and we did an ultimate die hard edition (5 copies!) of "sub specie aeternitatis" demo for that night. Besides the demo, package contained a DVD of our demo release gig "Basismin aakkoset". We also did a bunch of awesome k+k t-shirts before the gig. We'd like to thank all who bought our stuff, appreciated!

The gig went just fine and we also included a couple of new tunes in our set. The whole show can be seen here:

And here's some footage before and after the show:

Second of all, I'm so relieved that we finally got the 10" vinyl release out. The wait was long but I hope it was worth it. I think the package overall turned out quite nice with bonus cassette and all. We also did a 2nd pressing of the actual casette demo, 24 copies total. This time the cassette was white blank with both sides on both sides (does that make sense?). Anyway, I think it sounds superb on this particular format!

Third of all, a couple of new videos were released. The last video for the demo, Imperative Movement, showed the harsh reality of diy vinyl cover making. As a bonus we put out an alternative version for Tacts of Life shot with me and my little brother in a small village in the northern Finland.

Imperative Movement:

Tacts of Life (#2):

Lastly I wanna say that I'm still very happy with the demo and how it sounds. I'm also pleased how we got so understanding reviews from medias like Imperiumi and Inferno. Here's some of my favourite bits.

That's all. Hope we'll make some more history next year! Hablamos!
