Tour is canceled...

We are in the unpleasant situation to cancel the whole tour because of a series of unfortunate events, over our forces. Going on with this tour with the present problems in mind would be totally not good from any aspect. We totally respect and are grateful all the effort, help and kindness of everyone involved with this, but Luck didn't help us this time...

We're already working on new dates for a full European tour. Stay hooked for more info. Dates will start to get announced very soon!

Much love
The Afformance Armada


"Glimpse..." on super limited tape!?

You did saw this coming, right? Neither did we!

Our friend Vasiliki is making some really amazing pieces of sewed handmade jewelry, bags, pins and generally interesting stuff out of old textiles. When the idea of using her art to "dress" the cassette edition of "A Glimpse To The Days That Pass" showed up, no one could resist! If we are lucky and quick enough, we'll have em with us at the tour this month.

Check the first samples below:

Because of the nature of this, it would be limited to 30 numbered copies worldwide. Price and order info to follow soon!

"A Glimpse To The Days That Pass"

...this is the title of our full-length. Or better our retrospection between the years 2004 and 2008.

Eight tracks with total run of ~50 minutes, most of them recorded in totally different sessions, places and period. We are going to upload the full release at myspace, one track at the time, so stay hooked for bulletins, tweets and status updates ;)
500 copies of hand-packed, stamped and painted folders, with love and care of friends and us. 500 copies each one different from the other. Photos will be up soon (as soon as we have them ready actually...). Here's track list and some (maybe boring) liner notes:

1. Will Teasle Hopes (3:17)
2. Countryside Somnambulist (5:41)
3. A Tide Before The Flickering Sun (9:22)
4. Riding Tigers/Taming Waves (3:19)
5. Zgy-kix (7:17)
6. Lugano (6:14)
7. Do (7:45)
8. Self-killing Intruders (5:12)

Well, there is actually a story of each one. In case you are interested or have some time to kill, go ahead. I'll try to keep it short. Promise.

1. Will Teasle Hopes
Written while I was digging the awesome Minus The Bear, during a jam rehearsal. Nothing even close to them though, of course. It was like late 2006 I think. We call it "the hit", mostly because of the radio friendly character and duration. It was recorded at Rambo Studios (our own studio we don't have anymore...) for a free compilation given out to the first who show up at one of our shows back then. And, no, I won't talk about the title.

2. Countryside Somnambulist
Nothing much to say about this one. Drums recorded at Green Hill Dungeons and the rest at Architect Basement (yes, we like to give fancy names to our friends' spare rooms available for recording sessions hehe). Some guitars where recorded in the toilet, so that's the strange punchy sound in some lead parts.

3. A Tide Before The Flickering Sun
This one was recorded in summer 2006 (at Rambo Studios again) in order to print this demo CDr. It was limited to 200 copies and these were over in like three shows I think. People still ask us if there are any still available. Crazy! Here are the covers:

Actually Dennis joined the band when we asked him to record a lead part with his famous e-bow skills. After this session he stuck to us and us to him :) Most guitar parts recorded with an early-80s Roland guitar like this:

unique experience.

edit: I just remembered that a friend include it in a web compilation alongside with similar great greek bands like Misuse, Good Luck Mr Gorsky, S.Ink, Earthbound, Diafana Krina, Gardenbox, 2 By Bukowski, Monday Eternal and Absent Without Leave. Really nice compilation. I'll upload it sometime in case there's anyone interested.

4. Riding Tigers/Taming Waves
Recorded at the same "session" (and toilet) with Countryside Somnambulist. Tuned down a few hertz cause of a voltage failure, but we liked this way.

5. Zgy-kix
Our first full track composed ever. It's original form was in three parts: a drone-noise part, the postmetal-like part (that you can find in this release) and the postrock part, of total duration around 25 minutes. The plan was to be released as an one-song/three-tracks EP with bonus 5" vinyl with some more noisy stuff, but the label interested in founding this pull off, and it remained just a good idea. Recording the heavy-slow part at the end has some interest; two amps facing each other and four mics recording + one more at the empty loft of our friend's Geegor Abyssal Studios. Very noisy afternoon. Just like we like.

6. Lugano
Recorded at Lugano of Switzerland by Yuri at his Just For A Day Studios. The concept was to compose and record a song in a jam session of about ten hours split in two days, and release by On The Camper Records it in a split release with Far From The Madding Crowd. It was never released though because FFTMC broke up. We played at the Golden Zion Festival there too along with some really nice bands. We shot this at Tichino lake, right after disturbing some swans' peaceful sleep.

We love you swans! Word!

7. Do
Our only song, with actual vocals! Vocals performed and recorded by CH (National Pornografik, N3rse) at Amsterdam, Netherlands and music here in Athens at our Rambo Studios. I really like the way they blend into music. We have only performed once with vocals; very strange feeling. It was featured at Somehow Ecstatic Compilation CDr (limited to 200 screen-printed copies) along with songs from God Is An Astronaut, Nara, Long Distance Calling, Below The Sea, Absent Without Leave, Hues And Separation and others. It was sold-out pretty fast. Cover:

8. Self-killing Intruders
Another two-part track. Dealing with the kamikazes of WW1. Originally released by Spinalonga Records at In The Junkyard Vol 3 compilation along with many great greek bands like Callas, Expert Medicine, Misuse, Sigmatropic, Modrec, 2L8, Nightstalker, Deus Ex Machina, Down n' Out, Low Gravity and many more. I think we got some serious attention from this one. And of course the cover:

This one has been remixed by M5x6 and featured in an other compilation of Orila.net along with artists like Amnesia, Freon, Inverz, Sister Overdrive, Nokalypse, Phono, Eventless Plot and others. It's free for download at the label's site if you want it bad. I'm sure you do.

Oh, still reading? You're a hero (or just TOO bored or have A LOT of time to kill). Thanks for reading again. Expect photos, ordering details of the release and news on the tour very soon.
