cover and details on new steven wilson album 4 ½

Below is the new cover and different cool versions the new Steven Wilson album will be released in on January 22nd 2016.

Shot at Moesgaard Strand in Aarhus, Denmark earlier this year.

Stay tuned for more pix and updates.

 
22nd January will see the release of a new Steven Wilson album “4 ½”, so titled because it forms an interim release between Steven’s recently released fourth album Hand. Cannot. Erase. and the next studio album.

4 ½ comprises 6 tracks with a total running time of 37 minutes. 4 of the songs originated during the sessions for Hand. Cannot. Erase., and one from the recording sessions for the previous album The Raven that Refused to Sing. The final track is a version of Don’t Hate Me, a song originally recorded by Porcupine Tree in 1998, and is based on a live recording made on the recent tour of Europe with additional recording later done in the studio. The vocals on this new version are sung as a duet between Steven and Ninet Tayeb.

Also appearing on the album are members of Steven’s band over the last few years; Adam Holzman, Nick Beggs, Guthrie Govan, Dave Kilminster, Craig Blundell, Marco Minnemann, Chad Wackerman, and Theo Travis.

4 ½ will be released by Kscope on CD, 180 gram vinyl, and blu-ray, with all formats housed in a beautiful die-cut sleeve photographed by Lasse Hoile and designed by Carl Glover. The blu-ray (audio only) edition includes high res stereo, a 5.1 mix of the album, and a bonus 5.1 mix of the new version of Lazarus (recently included on the Transience vinyl compilation). The vinyl edition will include a download code for the album in a choice of FLAC or mp3. The album will also be available digitally on 22nd January from iTunes, Amazon.com, Google Play & Apple Music.

Directed by Lasse Hoile (Steven Wilson / Katatonia /Opeth), 'A Sort of Homecoming' is a stunning concert film of Anathema’s homecoming show on March 7th 2015 in the spectacular setting of the Liverpool Cathedral. Set for release on 30th October through Kscope (Steven Wilson, TesseracT, Katatonia) the concert was described by Prog Magazine as “a once in a lifetime experience that words can barely do justice.”

Anathema have spent the vast majority of their career making music that defies description. Formed in the mid 90s, they have risen to become one of the UK’s most cherished and critically acclaimed rock bands.

With their star rising ever higher, Anathema returned in 2014 with Distant Satellites. The new studio album showcased another imperious forward step into the realm of miraculous songwriting. It has proved to be the band’s most widely acclaimed & celebrated record reaching 32 in the UK charts with the likes of The Guardian (UK), Metal Hammer (UK /DE), Kerrang (UK), Classic Rock (UK/DE), Prog Magazine (UK), Aardschok (NL), Rock Hard (DE), Rolling Stone (Aus)heaping praise on the album.

During 2014 & 15 the band toured the world extensively to promote Distant Satellites both as a full band and also with a stripped down acoustic show. It was the band’s performance at a one-off show at Gloucester Cathedral in 2014 that opened up a new chapter, giving them an opportunity to set the music in an ornate, beautiful environment. In March 2015 the band played an acoustic tour of Cathedrals in the UK that culminated in a sold out show in the impressive Liverpool Cathedral, the band’s hometown.

Having previously worked with Anathema on their acclaimed ‘Universal’ concert film, Lasse Hoile captured the 100 minute acoustic set in high definition against the sensational backdrop of Liverpool Cathedral. Featuring 15 songs selected from the albums Distant Satellites, Weather Systems, We’re Here Because We’re Here, A Natural Disaster and Alternative 4, the ‘Anathema Acoustic’ trio of Daniel Cavanagh, Vincent Cavanagh and Lee Douglas were joined by rhythm section John Douglas & Jamie Cavanagh, alongside their very talented close friend David Wesling on cello who also played on Hindsight (2009) and A Moment In Time (2006). For this exclusive performance the band were also joined by the renowned violinist, Anna Phoebe on a haunting rendition of ‘Anathema’. The audio has been produced and mixed by Christer-André Cederberg who worked on Distant Satellites, Universal and Weather Systems, with the cover and booklet artwork featuring the stunning photography from the show and behind the scenes by long time collaborator Caroline Traitler. This is the first Anathema live release to feature a 5.1 audio mix, engineered by Bruce Soord.

The Lost Song Part 2
Untouchable Part 1
Untouchable Part 2
Thin Air
Dreaming Light
Anathema
Ariel
Electricity
A Temporary Peace
The Beginning And The End

new celestion son music video

Today see's the release of a video I did for a band called "Celestial Son" (formerly known as "Drone")

It's kinda performance disco in the woods, always wanted to do some kind of disco video so here it is (with an epilepsy warning though) ! So check it out and keep an eye out for more in their new album coming out in September - it's pretty good rock stuff !




Here's is what Rasmus Sjøgren had to say about the release :

"Guys – the wait is over. Today Gaffa brings an exclusive premiere of Lasse Hoile's original and playfull music video that follows the first tunes from our upcoming album Saturn's Return.

I prouldy present: Nothing in Excess

Though these are indeed really important news to us, it is not the only ones today. If you follow the link it will probably occur to you that we're changing the name of the band. A change is needed and we hope that you'll like the new one as much as we do.
So from this day forth this dog will no longer respond to Drone but solely to Celestial Son.
Since Facebook won't allow changing the name of this page a new one has been made – hope to see a lot of you over there. Find the new page here:
www.facebook.com/celestialson
…. oh yeah and by the way – we have signed a record deal with Target Records. Album release September 11.

one-off art prints up for sale

I have 5 large (2 x black and white semi nude portrait and 2 x face with paint portrait) high quality exhibition prints that didn’t make the final inspection before framing and therefor had to be reprinted.

These prints was made for a one-off exhibition at the University Film-school collage here in Aarhus, Denmark.

3 of the 5 images where cut a bit too close for the type of framing I needed for these and the other two have very, almost un-noticeable tiny bubbles from being laminated for extra protection !

Each print measures 100cm x 66cm, dated and signed, printed on high quality Kodak professional mat photo paper. On top of the extra mat laminate it gives the prints no reflections from the sun or bright light sources which means better detail and rich colors with deep blacks still keeping all the detail in the original image.

Because these are big and heavy + having the extra laminate for protection and also longer lasting (100 years+) without loosing color etc.

I cannot ship these in a tube unfortunately so if your in or around Denmark and fancy one of the gorgeous prints please get in touch (please only serious inquiries)

They can be glass framed or attached to a light weight dibond plate and will look even better having a nice wide Passe-Partout around as well.

These will be the only ones available.
