Because we like An Horse, here’s a bit of news on their new album before the curtain does drop…
We are so excited and happy to announce our new record WALLS will be released on April 26 in the US on Mom+Pop Music. Release dates for Australia, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Canada will be announced shortly. Sit tight.
We recorded the album last summer in Vancouver with our friend Howard Redekopp. We wrote the songs before thenÃ¢â‚¬Â¦obviously. Some were written a while before, some a few weeks. Every song we decided to record became a tiny, helpless baby that we helped grow up/influence. I prefer not to see it as a parental thing but more as an older sibling. Some had terrible growing pains and at times looked like they were going to be ungrateful red-headed step children (both Damon and I are/were red heads and I am a step child). Others were low maintenance dream boats that fed themselves. I much preferred the later. Regardless, we have 12 new songs that we worked really hard on. On April 26th so you can hear them too.
A new record means a lot of new things. New songs, new artwork, new places to play, new merchandise and so on. The new art and merch is much more easy for me and Damon to judge because wellÃ¢â‚¬Â¦we didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do it! We got to work with some amazing artists this time around. We have some exciting pre-order packages available too including an An Horse pillowcase, a signed poster, an exclusive t-shirt, a cd and a lovely 180 gram vinyl. OHHHH! ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just all too much. I need to have a lie down.
We have announced a handful of dates in the US and Germany and there are plenty more to come! We see all your tweets and facebook requests to play certain towns and countries. We will do our best so keep checking in.
