Growing up we were always fans of the ‘concept record’ and the idea that a song could be a part of a greater piece of work rather than just have its place in a track list. You know, Dark Side, Sgt, Peppers, Ziggy Stardust and so on…
We started working on a story about a man’s desire to distance himself from the world he’s crafted for himself in order to stay close to those he loves. The idea is loosely biographical. As musicians, we spend a great deal of time away from our families, friends and careers in order to create and perform our music. It’s a labor of love, but it can take a toll. At times we’ve thought about packing it in and focusing on a career that would provide a better life for our families and ourselves.
However being musicians is an integral part of who we are. We don’t think it would be possible to just walk away from that part of our lives. This is the concept we wanted to explore through our new record – the consequences of trying to completely remove yourself from the world you’ve created.
For the first time in our career we’re working in a creative space free from the “suggestions” and “guidance” of a third party. We figured now was the time to do something different; tell a full story through words and music. We’ll be filming a documentary capturing the writing and recording process that will be released alongside the record. We’re also developing a new live show that involves playing the record from start to finish with visual elements to accompany every song. Our goal is to finish this record and release it the way we’ve envisioned it.
Now what’s in all this for you? During the campaign we will be providing our amazing pledgers with exclusive info about what’s happening with the recording process, artwork and pretty much everything about this record. Be it through video updates, letters from the band or pictures we take, you’ll be the only ones with the inside scoop about what’s happening.
Not only will have access to some of the early demos so you can hear who the songs evolve over time but you’ll also get first dibs at anything and everything ‘Amos’. And, of course, you’ll have that wonderful feeling of knowing that none of this would have been possible without you.
Receive a digital download of the new album as soon as its ready PLUS exclusive pledger-only updates throughout the entire process.
