Blossoms

Dear friends,

 

Now for something a little different… It’s always been difficult to choose a song to represent a whole album. I had thought of catchier songs to put out before the album comes out, but this is the song that I’d want everyone to listen to right now. Put your headphones on, play it really loud, and immerse yourself in “Blossoms”. This song is dedicated to all of you who have been supporting Demians throughout the years, to the friends that made it through the past few months, and to the ones that didn’t.

 

 

The album “Battles” will be available for download from the website for everyone who pre-ordered it, in the evening of October 21st.

 

The bonus album “+Telex” will be available for download from the website for everyone who pre-ordered “Battles”, in the evening of October 28th.

 

Originally planned as a bonus digital-only release, we’ve decided to include “+Telex” as a bonus CD and make “Battles” a 2CD set as a limited release. After finishing the album late last year, launching the pre-order campaign, and having to go through unfortunate events within the team, I decided to put the album on hold, and take some time to figure out how to make its release possible and relevant again. The multiple delays have been a burden for everyone, on both our side and yours.
When I first started writing “Battles” last year, I quickly noticed a very strong 90’s vibe to the album, and decided to push the music further in this direction during production. After delaying the release of the album and taking some time off playing music, I came up with the idea of making an ambient album that could be played on its own  or simultaneously with the music of “Battles”. My biggest music influences when I started writing little songs in the 90’s had been the alternative rock bands that I loved, from the Smashing Pumpkins to Soundgarden, from The Jesus and Mary Chain to Helmet… and the lush ambient scene with the likes of Vidna Obmana, Coil and Stars Of The Lid.
So the idea with “Battles” and “+Telex” is to celebrate this and mixing these sounds at will. Both records will be available in a two CD set that you can play separately, simultaneously, one from a CD player and the other from iTunes, etc… It’s up to you to be creative and change the way you listen to the album depending on your mood.

 

If you pre-ordered a CD copy of the album, it will ship to you as soon as we receive our stock, and you will receive a message when your order is sent. If you pre-ordered the album in the first few days last year, your pre-order automatically transferred to the 2CD edition. Thank you for coping with us during the last few months, and thank you for supporting this last Demians official release.

blossoms

 

winter came and never got me down
tangled knots of cold we can’t untie
i feel no shame in being a broken man
and testify there’s more than meets the eye

 

wild roses in the rain
o spring come back again
and gently numb the pain
blossoms in cellophane
and i begin again
as the world outside ends

 

safe in my arms, smile and look alive
sister we don’t care enough to try
we know it well we can still pretend
we put the gun in the hand of a friend

 

wild roses in the rain
o spring come back again
and gently numb the pain
blossoms in cellophane
and i begin again
as the world outside ends
