We've now started our journey towards the next album. The first demos are now ready. A couple of days ago we recorded seven new songs and I must say that I feel great again. Our intention is to record a few more demos during the summer and then, in the autumn, we'll go to the studio.
Before that we'll pamper you with a compilation album that's due to be released in the autumn. In addition to the familiar songs there will be something new and something extra material as well. By the end of the year the photobook "Uniklubi - Rakkaudesta hulluuteen" [can be translated as "From love to insanity" OR as "Because of love for insanity" -Ng], that sums up in photos the best (and maybe also the worst) moments of Luotisade tour.
Anyways, at the end of this month Uniklubi will start the summer tour which covers several festivals around Finland and also elsewhere.
Everybody: Have a good time while waiting for the summer. Enjoy the sun and the warmth if the summer in Finland makes them available.
It's been again a gloomy autumn, as you have certainly read. We had really planned and waited for our acoustic tour and it had to be cancelled because of my vocal problems. It really sucked.
They diagnosed a trauma in my vocal cords and it needed complete rest and care... All the fun things were prohibited. Now the situation is in control and we are able to start touring in the beginning of 2009, as planned. The first single is due to be released in January. But more on the tour and the release dates later on! The new website is coming, by the way... Very good-looking and all-covering, for once.
The very reason why I decided to write my good feelings in here is that next week I will go to record my parts for first songs and that's great! You can read more about the studio sessions on our forum. The topic is called "Petrax 2008/studiopäiväkirja", even though we will finish the album at Deerhouse studio (in Tampere). But I guess this is all for now... I must now run to the studio... Janne and Pasi will be playing guitars. Yeah.
A little update:
I went to the doctor's yesterday (13.1.) [to have his vocal cords operated -Ng] and my recovery will take longer than expected. The voice therapy begins in two weeks' time and the recovery will take in total four weeks. After that I can sing normally again. The recovery and voice therapy are very important now so that I wouldn't have to go to an operation like that ever again, don't you think so? Because of this, the gig scheduled for 22.1. has to be cancelled. :(
This is kinda sad but there's nothing else we can do. "Let's move on, said the Grandma when stuck in snow." [No idea whether there's a corresponding proverb in English -Ng] But don't worry, the vocal parts for the album were finished before the surgery... In a few songs you can hear "sexy growling or oinking" that is sexy in my opinion... but isn't it just rock'n'roll! ;) Well, anyways I'm very happy with the result of our studio sessions!
What else... Remember all those votings like Himoituimmat etc. REMEMBER TO VOTE!
Yeah, it's bye for now.
That Kukka-thing, that is the song Kukka is now out to the radio and again we need your votes for all the votings. Thanks.
We also have to thank Bloodpit for the shows at Yo-talo and Flamingo. It was really great and maybe there's going to be some bigger disaster than earlier in the furture.
Nothing more at the moment.
Well, the first part of Syvään valoon tour is now completed. It's been amazing, thanks to you. But we won't have too much of vacation here because the festivals are soon calling...
During May we are also going to record a couple of new songs for Mitä vittua EP, which is due to be released at the end of the summer. But anyways, enjoy the sun and thank you for a successful tour.
Kirjoittelen tännekkin pitkästä aikaa. On tullut keskityttyä lähinnä reissaamiseen ja tekstien kirjoittamiseen viimeiset puoltoista kuukautta. Muutama keikkahan meillä tässä vielä on ennen kuin aloitamme todenteolla työstään seuraavaa albumia. Kohta alkaa siis pää leviään ja niin sanottu stressi hiipii ovelasti takavasemmalta ja vie toivon tulevasta. Mutta näin se menee.
Ei kai tässä muuta. Biiseistäkään en uskalla teille vielä mitään kertoa, enkä kissan ulkoiluttamisesta tai kaupassa käymisestäkään tohdi tänne raapustaa. Kuunnelkaa levyltä sit
Kulkaamme myöhemmin ja yrittäkää kestää.
Damp & sweaty news from Tampere, Finland! The summer has started little by little when it comes to the gigs, and also Romantiikan Riippet have been on the scene already. The show at Lahden Yöt [Lahti] was a blast. Thanks to everyone who's been there.
Most of all however, apart from the sun, a brand new release is heating up the emotions. In a good sense. The single 'Aikasi on nyt' found a good feedback and we're in good spirits that we didn't get such a [BASIC] song playing on the radio. After a few weeks we'll be finishing -Kultakalat-, after which the waiting will expand to manageable proportions. Already craving for a new club-tour. Only now will be shown who fixes it. I.e.: we will.
Don't forget to share your endless support for our band by voting for us so that the song will be on the top of all the radio playlists. And a dear welcome to shows at the end of the summer.
PS. It might be that you're going to hear/see something cool at DBTL (Down by the Laituri, festival in Turku). Hopefully.
that we didn't get such a [BASIC] song playing on the radio.
--> that we got such a not-so [BASIC] song to be played on the radio.
