We haven’t yet emotionally recovered from our first single MADELAINE peaking at No. 515 in the Amazon pop charts, yet we’re already working on our next release. The picture above is a sneak peak of the cover design for the new single.
Unfortunately mixing took us a few months. For weeks we couldn’t get the sound effects for the drums right before realizing we had been using the wrong keyboard setup to begin with… After that mixing and mastering was done within a week. We think we improved sound quality a lot this time.
Next week we will send all the files to our pressing plant at My45’s so we should be set for a midsummer release.
In the meanwhile we’re working on a lot of other stuff promotion wise that we will share on this website. So stay tuned for more information and a chance to participate in some youtube antics.
Ok, so in a few days a data protection disclaimer is mandatory for about everybody who’s publishing in the web.
Feel free to read ours if you haven’t got anything else to do with your life. It’s in German as we’re based in Austria:

We were asked for a YouTube-link for promotional purposes. So we took some still photos and put together a little video for the MADELAINE single. Of course it’s not a real music video (we would have loved to do one but we don’t seem able to find the time right now) but maybe it’s fun to watch anyway:
Our first single “Madelaine / Lovesick Zombie” has been released today as planned. We are rather satisfied and also pleasantly surprised how well the sound transfer from home recordings to streaming and download files has turned out.
It is already available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer and other download and streaming platforms. It’s not out on Amazon yet. Please check them out, enjoy the music and support the starving artists! Just kidding – this is a fun project and most of the time we’re eating more than a fair share of the world’s food supply …
A limited vinyl edition is available in our store.
To prepare for the forthcoming release of our first single MADELAINE we have decided to relaunch our homepage. It contains more information now and is easier to navigate as well as slightly more elegant in design.
Most of the content of the old page has been transferred, including parts of the news section.
Today the 7″ vinyl records for our first single release MADELAINE / LOVESICK ZOMBIE have arrived from our German pressing plant at MY45. We have ordered a limited edition of 200 copies that will be available in our store soon. The release date will correspond with the date of the streaming and download releases.
The records look fine, the audio quality of the digital files did not translate to vinyl as well as we hoped it would. I guess we still have to learn a lot about mixing and mastering for vinyl. Still it feels great to hold your first self produced 7″ record in your hands. We hope the record will be appreciated as a collector’s item and as a fan tribute to Paul Roland’s music despite some technical flaws.
