We won't perform tomorrow at Schattenwelt Festival because one of us is sick. That's the kind of shit you would never like to happen, especially before a concert you've worked so hard to be prepared for. We've been so busy we also forgot to write here about our new video "Tomorrow's Life". Well, we'll write about it sooner or later. An entire chapter. About the making of. It could be worth it.
So after all it will be our native Province of Turin, the place where we're going to present live our new tracks for the first time. It was written in the stars then.
20th October 2017
Just 2 weeks to go before the release of our new album “The Fellow Traveller”! We’re actually very excited about it. It entered the DAC Top 10 chart already and have been aired by different radios and positively reviewed many times already. Moreover, the CD copies look great, and we’ll soon make them available on our online shop too.
Everything fine and promising you may say? Yes, sure, apart from some misunderstandings regarding our previous post, where we were perhaps not clear enough, in underlining we weren’t referring to any of our label bosses or distributors or any other legitimate official partner operating in the frame of a planned promotion stemming from written contracts.
We were instead referring to the unauthorized use of our new material (or any information related to it) by third parties who we have no official agreement with, who were given it for a specific purpose to be executed with a precise timing under specific conditions and with precise limitations.
For your general information, this news section has become a sort of blog or logbook, where we post things we don’t post anywhere else and where no debate is meant to be stirred up. A place you would come and visit only if you are truly interested in seeing what we do, how we feel, keeping yourself up-to-date etc. far away from (anti)social networks etc.
Then if you have any specific question, you can always apply to our spokeswoman Carla, who will get back to you as soon as possible, at firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime we’re also preparing ourselves for our next gigs in Austria, Italy and Russia, where we’re going to present some of our tracks live. It would probably be impossible to present the whole album in one go because you still want us to perform our oldies but goldies, don’t you? And each band’s time on stage is obviously limited, especially when taking part to festivals, which is ok.
We’ve also been involved in a couple of collaborations lately, but that’s too soon to announce that yet. Be sure we’re always busy to death, though. And that we won’t disappoint you. Have a great weekend everybody.
Not even this time we could have the pleasure to be the first ones to unveil either the cover design or the tracklist of a new full-length of ours. "The Fellow Traveller" is an album that cost us years of hard work, endless energies and resources. We have been planning its promotion with special care for months, seen how meaningful it is for us. Nonetheless, our plans got spoilt in a moment by some thoughtless ones who think it's very clever not to respect the artists' will as far the way and timing their own works should be made public so that they don't go unnoticed. As a matter of fact, sharing things with the wrong timing in a wrong way often condemn them to stay in yesterday's news and this album doesn't deserve that. We don't deserve that.
To further lower our enthusiasm, along with this leak of unreleased material, the problem of an evergrowing lack of whatsoever professional attitude on the behalf of many promoters and the insiders. This won't stay without consequences, whether we like it or not. We forecast fewer live gigs and fewer new releases. We're not going to stop making music, that's for sure. But if you want to make things easier for us, then please, next time, share our stuff only after we've done that ourselves.
The Frozen Autumn's new full-length album "The Fellow Traveller" will be released on 3rd November 2017 by Echozone/Soulfood and Metropolis Records (North America). It contains 11 songs, which will be presented live after that date, a couple of which will be however disclosed in the form of digital singles around September/October 2017. Spread the news and stay tuned for more!
The Frozen Autumn is currently working on the master of their new album.
They still have to decide who's going to release it. Within the next weeks, that decision will have to be taken.
If you have a serious label, that's the right moment to show your interest.
Sorry for the long silence. The Frozen Autumn has been very busy during the last months.
They're currently working on their new album's 11th and LAST track.
Just as a very humble homage and a small contribution to the worldwide demonstrations of love and gratefulness to the incomparable work and life of David Bowie, The Frozen Autumn have been working since last week on a cover of "Loving The Alien", Diego's favourite song from the repertoire of this unique Artist. Without him, our scene (among many other things) simply wouldn't have existed. We're all here, artistically speaking, thanks to him. And we can all become "real", by turning ourselves into our own idea of how we should be and look and express ourselves thanks to this fascinating man who fell to earth and was never afraid to show the world ground-breaking, amazing, never-thought-of-before views, sounds, ways of being. He is just, and will always be, in everybody's life.
A 6-track-collection of "oldies but goldies" by The Frozen Autumn will be released these days by the San Francisco based label Dark Entries, as a 12" 45 rpm vinyl. The title is "Time Is Just A Memory", artwork by Peer Lebrecht at Phoniques Arts.
