Slowly planning the next release

So, plans of an upcoming release is taking form. While we do have material for a new album, we feel more like releasing an EP first. So, that’s what’s in the pipeline. Plan is: 3-4 new tracks, 3 remixes from bands we appreciate what they do and that we think can do good remixes, plus it’d be nice with a couple of the old style “extended versions” of a couple of the tracks as well, made by ourselves. We’ll see what will finally be on the CD (yes, it won’t be just digital). As for the timeframe it’s impossible to say, but the very earliest this could see a release is November, but most probably even later – these things takes time, and it all depends on how long every step of the process takes including the work of the remixers. We’ll keep you informed!

First vocal recording in 13 years

So, tomorrow Johan will record vocals for the first time in 13 years, let’s give him an applaud in advance! It’s for a track with the working title “Wreckage” – yeah, it’s a cheerful one. As for myself I’m at the local depressing joint finalizing the lyrics to “Creep” – I think I’m onto something, or it’s just the beers talking. :)

First taste of what we’re working on

So, we decided to put up a little snippet of one of the tracks we’re working on. This is in no way to be taken as a finished track or anything – it’s not produced or mixed properly at all – it’s just one of many sketches we’re working on – this one is definately beginning to take form. But as the creative process has its way, a lot of stuff is bound to change on the way til the track is finished. So, take it for what it is – a very rough instrumental demo snippet. Hope you like it – first thing out of the Seven Trees factory since 2001!

Another nice review, this time from Black Vector

In Swedish though. :)

“Expanding The Unknown” finally available on Spotify

Since the glitch at our labels digital distributor it took some time to get it up on the digital sites, but now it’s up.

Since yesterday the album is finally available on Spotify – go listen, spread the word to your friends, add to your playlists etc etc!

Remember though that Spotify still uses a compressed format so for maximum (FLAC) quality head over to bandcamp:
http://infactedrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/expanding-the-unknown

Or buy the CD from our website, still a few signed copies left! www.seventrees.se – new site to be launched next week btw including interviews and lyrics to the complete album!

Problems at our labels digital distributor

Due to problems at our labels digital distributor it took some time for the album to appear on the digital sites, now it’s finally up on Beatport, iTunes, Spotify etc – if you buy digital releases just check the price on iTunes for example, it’s beyond a bargain… :-)

2-page article & compilation appearance in Nachtaktiv

Pre-orders are now shipped!

Good news – all pre-orders made through our homepage has now been sent out and you will recieve them shortly! Once again sorry about the delay on our behalf which were of circumstances beyond our control – it won’t happen next time for sure. Enjoy the CD everyone!

Important message about pre-orders done through our homepage

Due to the fact that I had to go to the US for two weeks and came home the day before the release date (March 21) there’s a delay in sending out the signed version of the CD. Johan and I live in different cities and it wasn’t until I got back home (after a few days of being jetlagged) I could send him the booklets for signing. They are now signed by us both and on the way back to me but because thursday-monday is Eastern holidays it has taken some extra time and I will recieve them on Tuesday, and all pre-orders will then be shipped. Our apologies for that you have to wait for your copy of “Expanding The Unknown” – our intention was that you were gonna have it before everyone else. So, terribly sorry about this, it won’t happen with the next release for sure!

All regular copies (unsigned) were shipped in the beginning of last week.

Hope you’ll enjoy the release when it’s in your hands!

“Expanding The Unknown” released today!

Yay, it’s celebration time! cause what album is released today? no, we’re not talking about the new Depeche Mode album… it’s the official release date of “Expanding The Unknown”! I hope all of you who ordered it from Infrarot and other places gets it in the mail today! We really look forward to hearing what you think about it!

Some useful info:

– due to a mistake made by our graphics designer, the “limited edition 1000 copies” has been left out on the sleeve. This sucks, but it is still limited to 1000 copies like every other CD in the Classixx series.

– regular CD pre-orders made at www.seventrees.se will be sent out today.

– signed copy pre-orders will be sent out in the middle of next week, due to that Johan and I live in different cities so we will have to post them back and forth. apologies for this taking a little longer.

So, enjoy the album, we hope you like it!
