I april 2020 udgiver grunge/rock-bandet The Boy That Got Away deres tredje fuldlængdealbum med titlen ”Colossus.”
Ligesom på det forrige udspil ”Moonsick”, har bandet allieret sig med produceren Tue Madsen, som tidligere har arbejdet med bands som Meshuggah, The Haunted, Hatesphere, Babymetal m.fl.
➤ Koncertstart: 20.00
”Colossus” er kulminationen af mere end to års intenst arbejde og resultatet af bandets ønske om af udforske nye måder at lave musik sammen på.
Efter flere år med turnéer både i ind- og udland, supportjobs for navne som Dizzy Mizz Lizzy, Rival Sons og AC/DC, er bandet ekstremt sammenspillet og det er denne fællesnerve, som er det bærende element på den nye udgivelse.
Mange af numrene tager udgangspunkt i fællesimprovisationer og de øjeblikskompositioner der skabes deraf.
Numrene på den nye udgivelse kredser om følelsen af, at livet er som en uoverskuelig kæmpe, der konstant er på kollisionskurs og hvordan vi hver især bliver kastet ud på omveje når vi mindst venter det.
The Boy That Got Away:
Tim Alvin Boström
Support: Son of Fortune
Son of Fortune hails from the Faroe Islands, a group of small islands located in the North Atlantic Ocean. The rawness in the gloomy weather and the breathtaking scenery on the Islands shine through in Son of Fortune’s songwriting and sound. From the raw and dirty Rock n’ Roll to the more dark and folky landscapes, the music challenges you, but at the same time makes you feel at home.
Son of Fortune has collaborated and worked on dozens of albums on the Faroes and around Scandinavia as a musician, songwriter, lyricist, engineer, mixer and producer. He has toured with his band in Germany, Switzerland and Denmark and also played various shows all around Europe in countries such as: Sweden, Norway, Iceland, England, France, Netherland and Russia.
As a sideman, Son of Fortune has played with Faroese artist like Teitur and Eivør and he has also played with living legends such as Kris Kristofferson and Larry Gatlin.
The latest endeavors in Son of Fortune’s journey took him to Nashville. The voyage from the small remote steep-terrain village – where he spent his youth mainly sitting with his guitar by the spinning records dreaming about going out into the world to perform – to music Mecca is a long but natural one.
After writing five hundred letters and receiving about five replies, he took a chance and jumped on the plane with just about nothing but his faithful old guitar and a trunk full of tunes and ambitions – and before he knew it, he was standing outside Sputnik Studios with a six pack of longtime producer hero Vance Powell’s brand of choice and knocking on his door. This was the beginning of what was to become “Voodoo Pop”, which is recorded, produced and mixed by Grammy Award winning team Vance Powell and Mike Fahey.
