Hey, sorry not put anything new out on the blog for a while, we have been busy behind the scenes auditioning new band members also working on new material plus loads of other things we are going to share with you.
Winning album of the year at the BCMAwards was a great feeling, to get the recognition for what we believe is a great album made everything worthwhile, your support in the voting process really helped so thank you so much x
Me and Elton have announced new album details along with the opportunity to pre-order, lots of bands do this so they can get the money through pre-sale to pay for recording costs, manufacture of the album plus marketing, this runs into thousands of pounds not hundreds, we dont have a record company to pay these costs so we run the band as a business, when we did a pre-order on FOREVERyoung the band contributed part of the costs, at the moment that album is running at a loss, we have learnt lessons from the 1st album from a business point of view, for our second album DiVERSiTY we will be planning a national and European tour to help us promote the album, we have proviosinal dates that we hope we confirm in full by the end of November, its exciting times but we have to split our time between being creative to being a label/manager/promoter all in one, we are excited with the challenge its hard at times yet we would not want it any other way, we want to prove that it can be done, that hard work pays off and sometimes dont live your music to safe, let it ride on the edge a little.
Our local Hmv in Merry Hill Dudley have agreed to stock FOREVERyoung this is great news and hopefully long relationship with Hmv.
Our recording starts in Cornwall on Oct26/27 this will be to record our next single which will be released towards the end of January 2020, our new band members will feature on recording and on the video which will be a mini launch of the band. We will record the rest of the album in Feb and March 2020 with the release date still hopefully May2020, if we can get enough pre-sales we will look at the option to produce Vinyl copies which would be a dream come true for us.
With your support sharing our music we can keep reaching people all over the world, if you know any venues or promoters then send them our way, we want to play non stop in 2020, we are also recruting people who want to capture the making of the album and follow us on tour through photography/film to get in touch.
So what about the new songs and what do they sound like, well we can tell you the song titles of two songs they are called Butterflies and Dont fall out of love with love, the latter being up tempo with a catchy hooks, Butterflies has great harmonies and is sing along anthem. The title track off the album will be called DiVERSiTY and is in very early development, u will hear new instruments, more harmonies and bigger sounds on this album, we believe its an album that will define us.
We will post more as we move forward, thank you for supporting the band and signing up to the mailing list, share with friends who may share similar music tastes and keep the SPiRiTNATiON growing.
