So there’s been a number of things going on this fall and insight to all of those activities are found in this one convenient digest.
First off, the new proper Soft Riot album, You Never Know What Might Come Next, was mixed earlier this month in London at Flesh & Bone Studios. On mixing duties was Owen Pratt, formerly of Noi Kabát. There are eight tracks in total and they’ll be released early next year on Desire out of France. Later on this fall production will commence on a couple of promotional videos that will hopefully coincide with the release of the album.
Soft Riot plays in Vancouver BC tonight at “Grey Area”. More information on this event here. If you miss this one there’s plans to come back to play more shows in Canada and the US next year.
While in Vancouver there was a drop in at the studios of I Die: You Die, a go-to Vancouver-based music website for all things electronic and and synth/wave/industrial, etc. The result is an interview with ID:UD host Bruce Lord about Soft Riot and an old Vancouver-based project A Luna Red. You can check that interview out here.
A new night called Der Hammer, curated by JJD and Lady Boy (Marcel Wave) kicks off on November 21st in Sheffield at Dada Bar. This will hopefully be the first of a number of regular nights, with live performances by Soft Riot and The Silent Age, as well as DJing by your hosts and Less Than Zero (Berlin/London). Find out more about this event here.
Finally, keep your eyes on this space for further live shows in 2015. Currently announced shows in the Live Events section.
