There’s a third Glowpeople album in the pipeline!! Preceding that, however, we will be releasing a four track EP called Quartet, in May. Both this and the as yet untitled album will be available online via iTunes, Amazon and Spotify through our new record label the Stockholm based Struggling Ant Records.
We also intend to have the album available in CD format, too. This will be on sale from the band / merchandise stalls at the gigs and festivals we have planned – and via mail order, through our Seattle based label and friends Cosmic Primitive Records, while stocks last. Incidentally, they still have a few copies remaining of our previous albums, on CD; ‘Things…’ and ‘Happen…’.
Finally, we can officially let the cat out of the bag and reveal that we have been asked to play Kozfest, once again! This will be be the fourth occasion that we get to visit the loveliest of small, psychedelic music weekenders.
The promoters are continuing to release names of acts in tantalising instalments. We were held back until the fourth group. Others already out in the open include our friends Paradise 9, Spiral Navigators, Peyote Guru, The Invisible Opera Company Of Tibet, The Alice Syndrome, Phaselock and Andy Bole. The main headliners remain a secret, as we type – But rumours are rife!!
Kozfest tickets officially go on sale on January 29th. Please be aware that being a small event (strictly 500 people) it always sells out quickly.
As we snuggle up and hunker down in the cold, wet and windy Winter ending 2015 and looking into 2016, we dream of breaking out of hibernation and into the all new year, we’ve a few things to share.
Firstly, there’s a slightly new look to our Sounds page. The tunes you can stream are now mostly embedded links from our Bandcamp site. Whilst individual pieces can be played straight from your computer’s browser – they can also be purchased and downloaded, in a format of your choice, for copying onto connected MP3 players or even burning onto CD.
Also, keep an eye on our 2016 page, now. Some live dates have already been added, but there are still some we’re either still trying to confirm and arrange – as well as at least one for which we are confirmed to be playing, but are being asked by its promoters, to keep ‘hush hush’, until an official announcement is made, on their own sites.
Happy new year. Hopefully, we’ll hook up with a few of you virtual friends in real life, out there in some sunny field or sweaty dive bar. X
