Exciting things have happened in my life and I’m a bit lax doing other things at the moment, but I’ve got 5 minutes spare so I’m going to share our latest band product with you. It’s D4, our latest EP/album of many/no names. You can get it for streaming or download in several places, the major ones being:
Go give it a listen.
And watch this space as something else will happen soon…
It is what it says on the tin. Heavy Mind Owls, our latest EP, is all recorded and available on SoundCloud. We’ll get it to Spotify and other stores in a bit.
Don’t worry, I’m not really hurting inside. It’s just a lyric from Tortured Soul, the latest and last song to be recorded for our Heavy Mind Owls project. We recorded it last night – still need to mix it though, so you don’t get to hear it just yet. I have spotted that we’ve all been a bit lax though. We recorded Pretty Sun and didn’t shout enough about it. It’s also a song for Heavy Mind Owls and it’s on SoundCloud
It’s nearly 2017. We’ve had a little break to see families over Christmas but we’ll get things going again soon. It’s a little over 5 years since we got back together as HowManyDevils, so I’ve updated our profile pages. Some things change in that amount of time…
Interested? Here they are:
Plans for next year are: name and release the Yellow Arch EP, finish recording and release Heavy Mind Owls, find a drummer, GIG!! :-O
Evening. We’ve been recording today. Not the EP – we will get around to that though – this was the procrastination project, which I named ‘Heavy Mind Owls’ without telling anyone else. It’s the Complete for Pete project, where we record some songs that Pete noticed we hadn’t got proper recordings of. Today we did ‘Freaks R Us’ and got it more or less instantly (a first for us) to SoundCloud. Have a listen here:
We’re either halfway through recording the next album, or 90% of the way through doing an EP. Probably an EP. It needs a name, it’s the fourth thing we’ve done in the current incarnation of the band – and almost all of it is played in drop-D, so we were playing around with names the were to do with the letter D or number 4 (with the added coincidence of D being the fourth letter of the alphabet). Even without a name for the EP we got thinking about cover art, and with D being delta in Greek we got on to trying to use triangles (yes, we’re getting abstract). Then we looked through for symbols that were triangular and ended up looking at old Alchemical symbols. So, stealing the idea from Led Zeppelin 4 (four again!) we chose a symbol each. Tonight, those symbol entered the glorious world of merchandise – meaning I put them on some T-shirts.

…to an audience of none! It’s a practice not a gig. Tomorrow we play through this tiny reconstruction of a Marshall stack so we can get good at our songs. Next month we go in the studio proper and record them. After that comes the release of whatever HMD4 becomes
