Break's over - back to work. In the meantime some basic things have (finally) been decided. For example, there will be no acoustic guitars on the album this time (well, almost none) and it will become a quite darkwavish affair. Old rhythm machines (like the Roland TR-707) were taken out of the box and old guitar effects (like the Ibanez DML10) were plugged in. And you can hear that! :) At least in the current state of things... Anyway, 13 songs have been selected, the basic recordings are almost done and now it's time to start writing lyrics...
BTW, here's the first mixdown of the planned intro (video credits: www.videezy.com):

Here's a petite preview of the upcoming EP in almost authentic "radio style"...:

So, we've got a title ("Follow The Ruins EP") and the artwork... the parts come together - sloooooowly...

Just a short update:
Yes, Syborgmusic gave us a "Go!"! So now we can take the next 3 steps: choosing the songs (6, 7, 8?), thinking about the artwork (a digifile sleeve would fit an EP perfectly, wouldn't it?) and waiting for Martin to do some backing vocals. We suppose that the latter will take the longest...

Yes, we have to admit it: the album we had planned for the end of 2019 will not be finished in time. The work on it became more time consuming than we actually thought - mainly because we are still not quite sure about the "main direction" of the album... there is still a lot to be tried out. But on the other hand, "2020" looks pretty chic as a release year ;)
In order to bridge the time until then, we decided to release at least an EP. It will contain a small selection (probably 8) of those songs we have recorded as potential musical interludes for a planned audiobook. Unfortunately, this project could not be realized until today, because the temporal and creative coordination between author and narrator is a bit, let's say, difficult. That's why we decided to release the songs in their current state without the literary framework. That means, if our label agrees with our idea... we hope for the best...

We hope that "25.20.15" will see the light of day before 2017 is gone. In any case, our label told us a scheduled release date: 16th of December.

The album itself will contain 16 tracks and we were supported by the Greek musician KRIISTAL ANN, the Russian Darkwave heroes STILLIFE, NICOLE RELLUM and KAI KAMPMANN of DERRIÈRE LE MIROIR as well as the accordeon player ANNETTE KOSAKOWSKI.

And the weird album title? Yes, the album title... ;)

Ralf has used the last 8 weeks to record 40(!) demo songs for a possible new album. Now it is up to the others (poor ones...) to listen to them and find 12-15 songs which could deserve a further treatment.

... a litte preview of the upcoming DERRIÈRE LE MIROIR album "In Flux"


Fri, 23.09.2016

Well, after Ralf has finally "left" the new DERRIÈRE LE MIROIR album "In Flux", we actually start thinking about a new I-M-R album - especially because we can celebrate some anniversaries next year... It is not sure yet (of course not!), but we will start demoing some ideas in November - just in case ;)

Our song "Night" will be part of the upcoming compilation "Indie Pop, Vol.1". Which also features a track by MOUSSE T. :) ... strange world...
