KermesZ à l'Est / RDS-202 / New Album

Hi there, good news ! Our new record is coming soon !

Name: RDS-202.

Content: 6 tracks, for a total length of 31'15 '', making a musical step forward, towards fusion of trad and modern, adding electro, free-jazz and wild saturated voices to previous influences. Four instrumental tracks are traditional songs from Romania and Bulgaria ruthlessly rearranged by the group. One is a traditional Arabic melody of unknown origin. One is a composition by trumpeter Luc Lambert. Expect sweetness in combat shoes and devastating double kick.

Production:  Recorded and mixed at KOKO studio in Sprimont, with a great sound engineer (big up Thibaut!), 8 musicians, time, patience, humor, lots of love, and a few drops of beer.

Release: Digital release with free access starting on april 24th !

 

It's FREEEEEEEEEE : Just click here : RDS-202

 

 

Other good news : 2020 started strongly for KermesZ, touring in Australia and New Zealand upon invitation from WOMAD festivals.

Not so good news : As soon as we returned to belgian soil, the lockdown began. While we were expecting the delights of upcoming release of the fourth record, we had to change plans. All the concerts were cancelled one after each other. No more release parties, delayed festivals, stay home now ! All this meaning no more income for us.

A new record does not only mean time, patience, humor, love, but also some real cash. As usual, this record is self-produced, meaning that it is 100% financed by the band. But our income is mostly concerts fees. We spent more € 12,000 on all of this. We also had two musicians stucked in a lockingdown NZ who had to pay for a repatriation ticket back and we'd like to solidarize.

Goods news again ! : YOU are able to support us! In this pre-apocalyptic situation, and to avoid bankrupt, we make a call to you and we launch our first crowfunding ! The counterparts are pure KermesZ products: physical copies of "RDS-202" with lenticular cover, badges, t-shirts, haircuts, invitations and more ... Everything you need to fight lonelyness, gloom and to keep up your will to feel sane and alive.  Indeed, we need to see you in good shape at our next concert, because we'll still be there to party afterwards. Isn't life beautiful?!? Give us a boost and listen to our new record !
Thanks to you.
