we're still working on brand new material and plan to share it with you in 2015! In the meantime we finished a project we've been working on: "IN VIA REMIXED". This album contains remixes of tracks from our latest album "In Via" done by some befriended producers and will be released as download and stream on August 29th in Germany/Switzerland/Austria, on September 1st in UK & Europe and on September 2nd in N.America and Rest of the World.
In the meantime, feel free to preorder the album at your favourite digital store and have a listen to the stream of "End Of A Decade" remixed by Paul David Heckhausen at Bandcamp!
We started our own Spotify band profile and did a playlist with a selection of songs we are listen to at the moment which we will update regularly. Might give you a rough hint of how the next album will sound like. Follow us and Enjoy!
we hope you all started well into the new year and enjoyed some quality time with your folks.
Thank you so much for your ongoing support and heartwarming feedback during 2013! "Don't Stay Here" kinda blew up on YouTube with half a million views - We love to go there and read through comments if we're feeling down Thank you for enriching our existences!
There's no denial we've been a bit lazy regarding album number three. In retrospective, last year was more about personal changes in our lives, new projects and explorations. But yes, we're at it, and yes, we hope to hit the studio this year.
There's other stuff going to happen as well, but you'll learn about that soon enough. For now, have a piano sketch: https://soundcloud.com/frames/untitled-piano-sketch
So, do you guys remember when we asked you on Facebook about electronic music..?
The response was overwhelming, and we did ask that for a reason.. Sorry that it took us so long but here's the deal:
IN VIA, remixed!
That means, every track on IN VIA, remixed by a different artist in his own style. It's something that we had in mind for quite a time, mainly because half of us listens to electronic music nearly every day. Originally we wanted to release the baby in May, but as it often goes when artists collaborate with artists, things go.. slow
Fast forward to today, there's good and
1) Five tracks are ready (and safely stored on our hard drives) while two are nearing completion.
2) Two guys are too busy to get their tracks done and decided to refrain from the project.
(5+2+2=9, but since IN VIA hosts 10 tracks there's one missing, you say? Right - "Entrance" won't be on the record)
Okay, so now we have this half-baked thing, are eager to release and don't wan't to wait much longer - That's where genius striked us!
YOU GUYS are out there, doing amazing stuff! Help us out and be part of it: Please say hello to the IN VIA remix contest!
We will launch a facebook app (a.k.a. "custom tab") next week, which will provide you with all the infos and things you need to build your very own Frames remix. Also, that's when you'll learn what tracks are available.
So friends, what do you think of the whole thing? We're super stoked to hear your thoughts! Get in touch with us at Facebook (Link provided in the left-hand navigation bar) or directly via Mail at [email@example.com]
