Faderhead Releases a Video for the Song Stand Up
Faderhead has just released a video for the first single off his new album "Atoms & Emptiness" called Stand Up. http://youtu.be/tx4EbcluDvU
Only 11 months after the successful "FH4"-album, Faderhead is back once again to release his new CD "Atoms & Emptiness". This new record chronicles a period of time in the private life of the German producer where almost everything went wrong - which apparently provided endless inspiration and intensified the songwriting process. Musically, "Atoms & Emptiness" must definitely be considered the darkest and most melancholic Faderhead record. Although the typical Faderhead trademark mix of club electro, popsongs and ballads defines this album, you'll be hard-pressed to find fun-tracks like "Dancers" or "Coke For My Ass" this time around. On "Atoms & Emptiness" Faderhead impressively shows how a mixture of EBM, Industrial, Elektro and Synthpop needs to sound in the year 2014 and once again leaves the competition in the dust, wondering how he did it again!? Clubtracks like "Stand Up", "When The Freaks Come Out" or "You Can't Resist" are fluently mixed with Future Pop songs like "Someone Else's Dream" and "Every Hour Kills" (written in cooperation with Daniel Myer of Haujobb) as well as cinematic sounding Ballads like the title track "Atoms & Emptiness". Writing about music is like discussions on the internet: completely useless - so check out "Atoms & Emptiness"! You won't find better or more diverse Electro in 2014 anywhere.
Atoms & Emptiness will be released worldwide February 7th.
Communion After Dark will be promoting ALT-Fest taking place this August in the UK. Stay tuned for CAD Specials, interviews and band spotlights to get you hyped up for Alt-Fest!
Alt-Fest has already caught the attention of both the UK alternative scene and the media through a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign. The event, a five-day, multiple stage festival covering Alternative, Industrial, Metal, Goth and Steampunk music, lifestyle and more not only reached its target of £30,000 but went on to double the target, receiving over £61,000 from fans via the Kickstarter UK platform. Over 150 acts across the Metal, Goth, industrial and Steampunk genres are now booked. Most importantly Alt-Fest, which is operating a strict policy of ‘run by the fans, for the fans’, is engaging their audience in every aspect of the planning process making Alt-Fest not just crowd-funded but also crowd-led.
