We’ve got some really great news for you. BlackRain’s going to record a new album in January. And we can announce you one more thing. It’s going to be the best album we’ve ever made. A mix between the best of “License To Thrill”, “Lethal Dose Of…” and “It Begins” with the best songs we’ve ever written and the best sound we can produce.
We can tell you this ‘cause we made about hundred songs during the past 2 years. And we only picked the best ones. We picked the essence of what we think BlackRain really is. Each of the 14 tracks we’re going to record has been changed so many times to find the perfect arrangement. We’ve worked again and again and again on each demo. We’ve spent hours and hours to rehearse them to be able to play them perfectly once we’ll get in the studio.
This upcoming album’s got plenty of different kinds of songs. There will be kick ass riffs, rock n’ roll songs party songs but also emotion. You’ll also hear double kick, gospels, bagpipes, African percussions and…. a Chinese guy.
To have the best sound, we worked with our friend Christophe Capelli, to build the dream custom guitars. After many tries, we’ve capture the essence of the sound we were looking for.
Ok, we have to tell you one more thing. The guy behind the recording will be Jack Douglas. You know this guy. He has worked with so many legends like John Lennon, Aerosmith, The Who, Cheap Trick, Slash and so on. But he also worked with BlackRain on our last album. This time we’ll fly to LA to record the whole stuff in the Spitfire Studio in Hollywood Hills.
So guys, as you can see, the project is quite serious. But this costs money. We could have asked money to labels. But labels are poor today. Because you download too much. And we also download too much. And we love to do it, to put the songs on our phone, to party with these songs. But we’re missing the point.I told you we still needed some money. So we decided to work our ass off. We’ve worked nights and days to earn the gold we need. But at the end, it’s still missing 15000 dollars. We tried to ask the bank to lend it but you can imagine what they said.
That’s where you can be very helpful guys. You are tens of thousands of fans to follow us on social networks for years. Some of you have become friends. We met so incredible people thanks to our music. So we made up our mind. We didn’t want to ask your money without counterparts. That’s where a pledge campaign is perfect. We have a bunch of things to sell. Things we don’t use anymore but that can interest you. We have our past custom guitars, our first backdrops, the first limited edition single of “Innocent Rosie”, and some other great stuff.
But we also have time, time for you. We can write a song for you, about you or anybody that counts for you, we can invite you at our rehearsal, we can give you special guitars, drums or ski lessons. We’re also going to make a special track at the end of the album to thank all the fans that choose the option.
And of course, for any item you choose, you’ll be able to download the whole album for free. We really want to include you on this next record.
For those who discover us today, we tell you welcome. Thank you for helping us to make this happen. Our aim is to release the best rock album of the year. It has always been our dream and we’ll never give up on this. We are BlackRain, we are French, we play rock, and we’re going to kick your ass.
