The new album is finished

Last two weeks full immersion in studio meant we finished all main mixing, last few vocal overdubs will happen in few days and end of the week the new Nosound album will be closed. Yes, we did it!

It was an amazing collective work of all the band this time more than ever, the quality is just a step ahead of everything we did in the past, and the hires stereo and surround bluray audio will show it clearly (plus heavy weight 180gr vinyl).

In a few weeks release date, cover, title and all details will be revealed and preorder campaign will start. As usual we’re preparing exclusive merchandise and extras for preorders, so be ready to be in the first few hundreds!

During preorder we’ll release 2 or 3 singles/videos, revealing as well the amazing guests we had the honour to work with and who agreed to add their own ‘voice’ to this new album.

In case you missed it, there are already a few videos anticipating how is the new material..some of it you’ll hear it sooner, some of it later…we’ll not say more “)

New album music & astrophotography

This week is going to be busy in London with Starmus and Kscope friends, and preparing everything for Nosound drums recording in Rome next week!

Second half of this year was the most creative I ever had, every day writing music and every clear night taking pictures of the sky like the one below.

The new album has now more than 85 minutes of music, belonging to kind of two different ‘cores’..loads of recording and choosing in the next few weeks, and important announcements in January!

Stay tuned on these pages for more details, and if you like the picture below don’t forget to visit http://theski.es for more!

New album updates!

First snow fall outside the Nosound studio: a short walk outside was a good chance to recap new Nosound album exciting events and share something..
 
Release date for new album is finalised, early 2016 we start with preorders and be ready with your Bluray players ;)
 
We have studio booked in Rome in December to finish recording all drums, some incredible collaboration we’re talking through, and a unique recording location for all vocals..
 
The most important part of it all, the music, it took many new directions. It’s still a Nosound album, but is the most different than the previous ones, and marks a big change. It packs all together the most sarcastic, personal, angry and uplifting material we ever wrote.
 
With every new album we naturally detached more and more from early influences, searching and developed our identity, but this new album is the one where we really think Nosound became ‘Nosound’ as an independent and unique entity.
 
The next few months as we go into final stages we’ll post as usual pictures, audio snippets and updates from the studio up to the moment when we’ll finally be able to share all the work of the last two years with you all :)

New Nosound logo/brand!

band_lowres_sq_col_web2

Are you a graphic designer? Then we’re looking for YOU! :)

We’re considering the idea to update our logo, changing band font/graphics and creating a new logo for all our forthcoming works.

We know many of you are creative, amateur or professionals doesn’t matter, important is that final work is unique and fitting into Nosound music.

We can offer in exchange printed credits on all our works (including new album), a signed vinyl test press and the instrumental disc of Afterthoughts, shipped anywhere in the world (we can include something else you might like more!).

We’re open to all ideas, the only guideline is to avoid any of the classic prog or metal typical things: we’re looking for something different, more original and modern ;)

Please submit your ideas or ask for more info writing at newlogo@nosound.net

…new album is not far from release date (more news about it very soon!), would be great to have your work on it already…

New album recordings

One after the other the vocals for new album keep creating that magic link between music and lyrics.
 
Last night was the turn of a technically challenging one, hopefully will make sense when listening back to it :)
 
Late night always the best moment for vocal quality and mood for the most personal ones..and there’s a lot on new album!

NOSOUND – Feelings Are Not The Truth (intro)

First new music/video from work in progress on Nosound 6th studio album.

Is going to be a more stark and unsettling affair, exploring the origin of feelings (love, fear etc.), this time not only celebrating but questioning as well their very nature and place in our life.

On the Youtube page you can find the explanation of the footage used for this track, presented in its instrumental intro part.
