Right now I´m feeling really good, just sitting and relaxing before I have to get to work in a few hours. The weather is wonderful, and I really should go out and take a walk but I am just too lazy for that ☺
We are still working hard on the music video. We are at the moment looking for a recording local for the video, but have not found one yet! We did however find a new producer! We have been calling people and looking around for a space where we can record the video, but it´s really hard to find anything. I´m sure it will work out in the end.
We are releasing the first single from our new album this May! It will be great! I´m glad something happens after all this time in the studio.. It´s a proof that hard work gives good results!
There is lot of focus on the single release and album release right now, and some things going on in the band with a few new collaborations and partners. We are still working hard on the album and trying to make sure it comes out properly in the media. We will market it worldwide, so this is really exciting. The record company and PR companies are working on this.
The things I´m looking forward to the most right now is all of our new collaborations! We have found a couple of different companies that we are going to work with. They will help with the publication of the album, and make sure that it happens more around the band, that we get more gigs. There have been so much work with the album these last months, and we need people who focus on all the pieces around it.
Michelle has done a great job with the video this far, and we are all big fans of it. it’s just recording place that is missing. Another really big thing are the upcoming live gigs! It is going to be awesome to start heading out the roads and play again! It’s six months since we last played live for an audience. And before we do it again it will be incredibly fun to rehearse the new songs!
Really the main focus is on things that will happen in the future, making sure that everything runs smoothly. There is definitely going to be a releaseparty in connection with the release of our album, which we have set a preliminary date for: the 23:rd of august! When, where and if the party is going to be we will announce later on.
Looking forward to seeing all of you guys again!
Degradead International Blog no 7 – Bassplayer Michel Bärzén speaks about the upcoming video – and more!
The spring has come and everything is heading the right way
Right now I´m feeling damn fine! The sun is shining, the weather is warm and spring is coming At the moment I´m watching as my brother is oiling a deck … I try to help as much as I can – hehe.
We are in a preliminary phase with a new collaboration with a new promotion and booking company. We met them at an industry meeting. They are a known and big company in Sweden and the Nordic countries. They are relatively new, and we are one of the first bands they work with. So this feels exciting!
The album-cover process is moving slowly but forward. We have been changing it several times. It has kept on and messing much with the color theme and combinations, and there is always someone who has been unhappy, but now it has dissolved! We are also working with a new slogan and the logo that is basically finished. These will be released when the new single is out! It’s so exciting! The video will be fucking great because it´s me that is working on it I´ve tried to think outside the box and this is a fucking different video. From the start it became my task. I have had the idea for a long time and everyone thought it was a really good idea when I mentioned it to the guys!
The most fun parts right now is all the planning around the video and single release, our new partnership with the new promotional company, and I love the excitement around it all because we do not really know how it will go and it’s so damn fun!
My main focus right now is on the music video. It feels like a lot of responsibility, a video can last forever and many people will see it, it´s almost as big as planning an album, I think.
Spring feelings… I´m having the spring-jitters and it feels great! Now is the time to start looking at lot of fun things to do. My cousin from the Bahamas came last week so we’re going to eat dinner this evening and just relax and have fun. When the video is finished the band will be totally ready to go out and play. Our first gig this spring/summer will be in i Gamleby West Bay Heaven and Hell Festival.
We have been really busy for a while now, so we have not posted in a long time. We have postponed the release date of our album due to promotion, the music video, etc. We feel that we want to put more focus on getting single and video out first. We’ve put a lot of time planning, we do not want to do anything in a rush, but do it properly! Looking for perfection
Those who wait for something good always wait too long
