A semi-quick update for ya’ll so you know what’s up: I am just waiting for the remaining guys to finish up their stuff before we can move on to the mixing process this fall. Both J and Dirk’s got 4 songs each left to nail, and the plan is that it will be taken care of during August/September. Vacations and busy schedules is something we have to live with while being musicians, you know. I always said I wanted this album out in late 2014, and I am positive the plans will work out.
As far as completed stuff goes: All the guest parts are there now, all of E‘s vocals are done since a while back, my work is finished as well except for some tiny stuff that might change over the course of completing this beast. The great Marko Saarelainen has handed over the absolute astonishing cover, and once again I am completely floored! It is absolutely massive and my fave cover yet for TPH. The people I get to work with, it is mind-boggling…
Piece by piece everything will be revealed to you until it’s time to unleash this monumental creation. I will speak a lot more about everything that led up to this when the time comes, but for now – just know that this is something way beyond what we have ever created under the TPH banner in the past. It has all come full circle finally.
For now, I just wanna thank Ellinor Asp, Jörgen Sandström, Dirk Verbeuren, Lasse Johansson and Marko Saarelainen the most since they are the biggest part of this creation, music and art wise. And naturally – The Haters, who bring this to life thanx to you making sure we could reach the monetary target. It’s your best spent money ever. You’ll see. And all the other people involved… You are all a part of what’s to come. I thank you so much, and I will thank you many a time again.
