So…. the new album is mixed, mastered and being pressed up as we speak.

3/ Migration

4/ You Will Be Loved Again

5/ The First

6/ This Photograph Is My Proof

7/ The Bell-Ringer’s Hands

8/ The Speed Of Clouds

9/ Dust/Rust/Trust

10/ My Apology

11/ Passed

12/ Up Here

    1. Ohh we really would have loved to have done vinyl, but the costs were prohibitive. Keep watching though because I’d love to do it eventualy.

      1. Dear Paul,
        It was really amazing to discover your music this year through a german blog. It made a great year better and it was inspiring to my own music.
        Sadfully I didn’t made it to the concert in Gera but I’m looking forward to the gig in Erfurt next year.
        My girlfriend gave me your first album as an vinyl as a present for christmas. Thank you for the personal note on it. That made it special and it felt like be treated personal and not being a random guy. Thank you a lot. I wish you a great new year.
