12. November 2018 - NEW ALBUM OUT NOW!
Dear fans, friends and listeners,
After the "Bob Spring & the Calling Sirens" Ireland Tour in 2016 the band and I started working on our next album which was supposed to be released in Spring 2017. Though, life's a bitch and I know what I'm talking about... 2016 Was definitly the worst year in my entire life, even worse, it almost terminated it. At that time I really couldn't say whether this album was ever going to be recorded, finished and released or not. My band, The Calling sirens were the true heroes and prooved
their very loyalty and deep friendship guiding me through these pitch black days that seamed never to come even close to something like an end.
Now, two years later I feel a little better even if my life's still upside down and I often break down in tears when I try to work it out, me, my heart, my soul, my love etc. The great thing I never thought would happen is: I'm really holding this record in my hands! I listen to it and it is maybe the BEST and most authentic diary
ever. It took so much sweat, tears, blood, confidence and strenght, you wouldn't believe it. I guess that 90% of the people who are close to me would have resigned
and just ceased working with me. A big, no, A HUGE, nooo, THE BIGGEST THANK YOU EVER goes to my friends and band mates Andé, Michel, Silvan and Guido
for all they did for me, for all the shit they had to swallow because of me and my misery, for never giving up on me and for picking up the millions and millions of slivers to repair what was left of my heart and faith. Boys, I LOVE YOU and I owe you so much.
And here it is, an album that shakes the frozen glaciers, breaks open the hardest of Granite to rock you and elevate you into infinite compassion and awareness
in a cradle of deep, indescribable cradle of sound.
DARK COUNTRIES - The title is an absolute metapher for what is the deepest inside of a human being... The human abysses, dreams, wishes, regrets, sadness,
anger, hate, desperation, joy, feeling abandoned and desperatly godforsaken lonely. The dark countries. Word.
Enough said and I promise I wont write anything as personal like this little anectode fo quite a while ;-)
