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
