Busy writing and recording, that’s where. The next album is getting surprisingly close. We have these songs and are mainly waiting for the polishing phase now:
- Corrupted Tranquility
- Deep Within The Sea It Sleeps
- Electric Eels
- Fractions Of A Fish
- Seahorse With No Name
- Snow Bones
- The Noise
- The Oyster
- Village Of Dolls
I think we cover rock, prog, hardcore, funk, post-punk, electronica and western with this lot.
Will try and keep you updated…
Well, here we are. A few tracks down and only a couple more needed before we mix and cut our way to the next album offering. Up to now things are feeling quite diverse. A little funk, a little American rock, a little cowboy music and some odd time signatures. All fit/been made to fit into a fishy/ocean theme. Stay tuned for more news, sometimes.
Flesh Reunion is available on Soundcloud now, so you can (and should) stream it for free. It’s on iTunes (UK, US) and Amazon (UK, US) still, if you want to spend money on it. And Spotify for the middle ground between those.
We’re really busy working on new stuff (and intending to have less of a wait before releasing this time), so do keep watching this space.
For now, here’s the hold music:
Friday 13th of February, 2015. Flesh Reunion is released.
I’ve been looking to the future (well, getting ready for tomorrow – we’re writing the next album). And nearly missed the fact that Flesh Reunion is out now! (I already have a copy you see).
It’s on iTunes (UK, US) and Amazon (UK, US).
You’ll get 13 raw and powerful rock and roll tracks with subjects ranging from death, to the number 13, to sleeplessness, to rioting, to wolves, to inanimate objects, even as far as love, and icepicks, and death again.
You should buy it. It’s only £2.49 on iTunes!
It’s Wednesday the 11th today, which means that Tomorrow’s Tomorrow is Friday the 13th. What do we do on Friday the 13th? Well, if we’re HowManyDevils we tend to release an album. Sadly we can’t manage one for every Friday the 13th, but we have got one coming this time. That would be Flesh Reunion. All new material this time (none of that 13ep here’s a song we didn’t record 13 years ago stuff), 13 tracks of the grumbly dark rock you should now expect from us. It’ll be on iTunes (UK, US) and Amazon (UK, US), maybe other places… And it’s cheap!
Meanwhile, we’re off on our next project.
(psst, free downloads on http://www.howmanydevils.com/fleshreunion – but if you buy it that would be great)
I’ve just lined Flesh Reunion up for release. The release date is 13/2/2015. The UPC code (just so you don’t accidentally buy someone else’s Flesh Reunion) is 5054316451280. And this is the track listing:
- Halfway There
- Icepick Lunatic
- World In Flames
- Through These Eyes
- A Different Breed
- The Lit Match
- Set Him Free
- Flesh Reunion
It’ll be available in iTunes, on Amazon, on Spotify, and some other places. And we might do some previews too.
I’m not sure it can really be called art, but it is called artwork so I guess it’s close enough. I’m spending my time making pictures to stick on the various bundles of songs we release when we get to the end of the Flesh Reunion project. I do have a source files gallery that looks a bit Andy Warhol, in so much as it is the same basic picture rendered in several different colour schemes.
So far I have what will probably be the Flesh Reunion overall album cover – which is a “colour-wayed” collection of in-the-studio photos; an as yet unassigned cover based around Stumpy Boxhead (our drummer); some convenient graffiti for Insomniac; and my own face for Older. I must get some artwork done with the other guys faces too.
Then comes a website…
