Lahannya to support Emilie Autumn in London!

I’m very pleased to announce that we will be main support for Emilie Autumn at her London show in July!

20 July 2007 – Underworld, London:

Emilie Autumn


The Shanklin Freak Show

About Emilie Autumn:
Emilie first became widely known as violinist and backing singer for Courtney Love and Billie Corgan, but she is also an amazing musician, songwriter and performer in her own right. Emilie’s ‘victoriandustrial’, in which she merges classical, electro and gothic elements and infuses it all with a good dose of rock ‘n’ roll glamour, has won her fans all over the world. I’m pretty sure her Underworld show will sell out quickly!

More info about Emilie Autumn is at Emilie’s Web site or myspace and you can check out the Shanklin Freak Show on their myspace.

I may have a few tickets available for Lahannya fans at a slightly reduced price and will post on here when / if I do.

WGT 2007 – Leipzig

I’ve been asked to perform with Soman at the Wave Gotik Treffen, Leipzig, on Sunday 27 May in the Werk II. I’m fairly certain we’ll perform Tears together, our first ever collaboration, as well as a few new songs from his forthcoming album.

On the Monday evening I’ll be DJing at the GNM (Global Noise Movement) Industrialized WGT Finale in the Moritzbastei, which I’m looking very forward to as well!

But now I must get my records together for Djing @ Slimelight tonight…
Take care,

The New Album…

I just had a first listen through the almost-final mixes of 8 songs from the new album that Lutz emailed me from the studio and I am really excited now about the release! They’re great and so much better than the demo mixes… and they were pretty good already!

What’s changed is that before it sounded like a lot of individual songs, more like a compilation. Now the album has developed its own sound and it sounds like the album of one artist – moi! 🙂 It’s also found its own style – still electro-rock if you want to find a label for it – but definitely more rock with a slight leaning towards metal. I think this is probably the result of my answer to Lutz’ question whether in future I’d rather go down the electro route or more towards rock or metal. And after our gigs in November and feeling the power of Belle’s drums and Bryn’s guitar riffs live on stage my answer had to be rock!

Mastering is currently planned for mid March and the design should be almost finished by then as well, so all is looking good for a May release. I’ll post some of the songs once they’re mastered on my various Web music profiles like myspace, and so you get a prelisten…

Yours, excitedly,
