Hello my friends
Today we release Volatile Times.
I want you all to know that I am very excited and, as always, feeling somewhat sick in the knowledge that a piece of me is going out into the world to be analysed, criticised and loved.
But overall I am proud of the record despite my previous psychotic blog.
And it is sad that music these days is instantly downloadable. This will make it very difficult for us to survive. We know that. You know that. Blah blah blah.
There are always parasites that think they deserve art for free and live off other peoples energy. And I refer to the person that uploaded the album before the release. I am used to this. Ignorance does not surprise me anymore.
But I trust YOU my friends. I consider you close to my heart. That you have supported this project so intensely gives me goose pimples every time I think about it and when we receive messages like this one below I remember that I do have faith in people.

I have guiltily downloaded the album early and already.
I don’t want to pay postage or hurt the environment with my consumption…
Can I make an honest payment by other means as I would have bought the album. If you give me bank details I will send 12 Euro today.
Fantastic work, really fantastic.
Kindest regards Rowan
A small note to our fans in UK, US and Canada.
We are trying very hard to get a solid release in your territories and also to set up some shows. It seems harder than ever to make it happen on our indie budget. The only real way to secure this in the future is for you to buy the record. We just cannot afford it and nobody with big pockets seems to be interested in challenging music anymore. That is the reality of the situation.
We will update you as soon as there is news.
So, whiskey raised and downed, lets all do what we can to keep the spirit alive.
Much love and respect.
