Hey guys. I am hoping this will be first of many more regular updates. Those of you who know me, know I am incredibly busy. But as the new Sliotar album is nearly here, it is time to up the blogging schedule on our website. We also want to keep you guys more in the loop of what’s happening in the Sliotar world.
So for the past week has been a busy one. We got to hear the final mastered version of the album, and it sounds fantastic! I know I will be repeating myself in the next weeks and months to come when I say we believe this is our best album so far. It is not out yet, but we are already really proud of it.
I took few days off to work on the covers. We have some great ideas, but it is turning out to be a challenge. You see, the cover booklet will include more than just the track tittles and the credits. We wanted to share with you some of the stories from over the years that somehow explains what Sliotar is all about. We want this album not only be music but an experience. And trying to fit all of this into the booklet is turning a bit of a challenge. But we’ll get there.
Getting ready for the tour
Also, the tour preparations are in full swing. One month from today, we will be on the road. We are practicing the live versions of all the new material, setlists and getting all our equipment in order. We are very excited about this summers tour.
From time to time I will ask for your guys help in these blog posts. If you think you can help us, let us know. Or if you think you know someone who could help us, please share this blog post with them. Today I am looking for Videographers both in the Czech Republic and in Ireland. We want to capture as much video footage from this summers tour, and if you are a DSL videographer, or just do it for the fun of it, get in contact with us. We also want to make some music videos for the new album, and we’d love to find few videographers in Ireland who could help us. If you want to help us or know someone who’d be up for it, email us at [email protected]
That’s all for today. Keep it Celtic!
