New album, titled ISLANDS, to be released June 2012

Posted in News with tags , , , , on March 10, 2012 by mezzoforteband

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.
