Plans for 2005

2005-01-16

The New Year has arrived, therefore it’s high time we shared with you our plans for this year:

Our second album

Whether we manage to meet the expectations, to surprise you, to prove that “OOM” was not recorded by accident, you won’t know until... hm... this autumn. There are several reasons for it – one of them is the fact that our debut album had its worldwide premiere on September 21st, 2004, almost a year after it was released in Poland, and this time we’d like to release the material at the same time in Poland and abroad.
We are currently working on our second album, we’re composing, changing and rearranging it. Most probably, we’ll start recording it in March. Right now we can tell you that it’s going to continue the story from “OOM” in the lyrics, and the music… well, it will be more dynamic :) Some of you already know two of the compositions from the new album as we played them on “Progressive Tour” in May and October last year (“Reality Dream III” among others.)

Concerts

We’re planning a few gigs in Europe and perhaps one in Poland in April this year. We’ll tell you the details soon.
We’ll go on the official tour promoting our second album after its release (October/November) and, of course, we’ll let you know about it well in advance :)
The not-so-good news is that, unfortunately, we had to cancel our performance at this year’s NEARfest. The problems with visas turned out to be a serious obstacle, but we have a standing invitation from the organisers and we hope that, sooner or later, we’ll perform overseas as well.

We wish you all the best and a lot of great music in 2005
