Switch Opens/Fingerspitzengefühl needs a break. We’ve been playing together for almost 13 years and we had a great time, but now we need a pause from our kurskian rock. We don’t know whether the pause will be temporary or forever, but we do know that you won’t hear a word or tone from us until early 2014. Until then, take care and thanks to everybody who has helped us!
Anders, Tomas, Mikael & Jesper
The drummer became the singer.
The singer became the drummer.
The bass player went over to the dark side.
The studio expanded the territory.
Micke Man-Machine used a new weapon of choice – ze acoustic guitar. We also did more vocals. Anders and Micke did some chanting parts and Jesper sounded like a not so healthy alliance between Dave Mustaine and Tom Waits, in a good way though.
Yesterday´s session was a success! Anders managed to lay down the drum tracks for 5 out of 7, or possibly 8 songs. Good work! The snare has the right smack and the bass drum makes you wanna dance. Today we will continue with the rest of the drums and then we´ll go for bass gtr. Oh yes!
Today is the day we start recording the new album! Anders is in Garaget Studio laying down the drum tracks as I write this. Expect seven new songs clocking in at somewhere around 45-50 minutes. We’ll do this as quickly as we can (without compromising on quality…), and hopefully we’ll be able to release the record in November on Transubstans. What it sounds like? It’s like a bitches brew, or a joint clash…
