New album, titled ISLANDS, to be released June 2012

A new Mezzoforte album, titled ISLANDS was mixed last week and is scheduled to be released in June 2012.
The album, which contains 9 original compositions by members of the band, was mostly recorded at different locations over a period of  several months in 2011, with the exception of one song, which was recorded in 2008.

The title, ISLANDS, reflects the fact that recording took place in Iceland, the Faroe Islands, the Westman Islands and Berlin (which used to be a sort of island inside the GDR).
Mixing was done by Johann Asmundsson in Studio Paradis, Reykjavik.

This, the band’s 14th studio album, is the first to feature the current 6 piece version of the touring band; Asmundsson, Briem, Gunnarsson, Gudjonsson, Studnitzky and Mueller.

The release will be followed by extensive touring in the summer and fall of 2012 and into 2013.

  4. Morten Lønseth Says:

    The new album is great!!
    Fresh and with a clear Mezzoforte signature.

  5. I also look forward to hear and see you again. No need for a playback on “Garden-Party”, I think your live performance is overwhelming.. besides, the Mac might freeze again, like last time in Minden 🙂

    If I had a wish: PLEASE play “Take A Breath” next time – I love this song.

    Keep up, and please try to come to Hamburg on the next tour!!!

      We never use playback in Garden Party. The computer is a sound source for live playing. It has been very reliable. If anything, we have had more trouble with rented keyboards.
