Band: The Arkanes
Label: SPV Recordings
Release: 25th April 2014
"Please describe the album in three words!", that's something I like bands who are about to release their debut album to do.
And so I asked The Arkanes to do it.
As their a group of four these are some of the words that were being said: rocking, tremendous, the opposites of happy, fluffy and light, awesome, majestic, bad-ass.
After said interview I got the album to start my review and I made it my goal to describe the album in three words as well. But before I do that, let me tell you more about the band.
How are your new years resolutions doing? Are they already forgotten or are you still working on them?
I wanted to do it because I love having events captured on photographs, because I wanted to learn more about my camera and push myself to my limits creatively.
So I started on January 1st and am still going.
Because sharing all 365 at the end of the year would be impossible, I decided to show you a few shots every once in a while.
Hope you enjoy!

Title: Costumes And Such Of That Kind
Label: Musopia Music / Aerostat Records
Release: May 2013
hits rating: 7/10
I like thinking of it as a proof that house in the sand is really developing into a source of good music.
Dominik from The Autumn Art Festival did so and I'll glady review the debut album 'Costumes And Such Of That Kind' for you today.
The Autumn Art Festival was formed as an one man show back in 2010 when Dominik only wanted to play music and express his feelings. With no intentions to make something out of it he played a few songs in a pub, just because his friend forced him to.
As the positive feedback and the love for music kept on growing The Autumn Art Festival became a serious project and the first album was created.
The project is now a duo consisting of Dominik Lermen and Sascha Grub.
Martin and James played a gig in Freiburg and since I decided I want more live music on this blog, we went on a little road trip to see them.
Besides writing and recording music all the time the two guys seem to live on the road.
Finishing their last tour just in February they now played another set of concerts in Germany.
The Arkanes are a four piece rock band from Liverpool, UK with exciting times ahead.
They formed in 2007 when it was just Chris and Lee. Drummer Andy and guitarist Dylan became part of the band over the years and now The Arkanes are unstopable.
So far they released a 6-track EP called 'Don't Act Like You Know Me' but their album release is just around the corner.
'W.A.R' will be released on April 25th via SPV Recordings.
I got to know them two years ago when they supported Jim Kroft on his Germany tour.
After staying in touch and following their career I'm really happy that we finally got the chance to film an interview for you.
For those of you who don't know them, The Arkanes are a rock band from Liverpool, UK consisting of Chris Pate (lead vocals, guitar), Dylan Cassin (lead guitar, backing vocals), Lee Dummett (bass, backing vocals) and Andy Long (drums).
They supported Monster Truck on the German leg of their tour and played at Kellerklub Stuttgart. Of course we had to met up for an interview which will be online as soon as I'm done cutting and editing. (Might take a few days,
But I'm already able to share some photographs I took at the gig. Oh and a video I filmed.
