|2011-05-08 : Before The Rain have inked a record deal with AVANTGARDE MUSIC|
Commented BEFORE THE RAIN guitar player Valter Cunha: “We are honoured to become part of a roster that include releases such as Brave Murder Day, Quietus, Magenta Skycode, among others. AVANTGARDE MUSIC have been constantly releasing solid & relevant music in the past 20 years and it feels great to be a part of such a team. With this release we really found our voice, Frail is a much broader sonic journey than anything we have done before. Expect thunderous waves and haunting melodies”
“Frail” was recorded at Fabrica de Som in Oporto, Portugal by sound engineer Nuno Maciel and produced by Valter Cunha. The highly anticipated follow-up to 2007 “One Day Less...” was mixed at Chapel Studios (MY DYING BRIDE, CATHEDRAL) in Lincolnshire, England by Ewan Davies (ANATHEMA) & Valter Cunha, mastered at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden by Jens Bogren (KATATONIA, PARADISE LOST) and includes Natalie Koskinen (SHAPE OF DESPAIR) and Peter Bjärgö (ARCANA) as guest singers.
“Frail” brings a more mature sound from the band with a revamped line-up including new members Gary Griffth (ex MORGION), Carlos Monteiro and Joaquim Aires.
Additionally the band have scheduled a split 7” with Finnish funeral doomsters “SHAPE OF DESPAIR”. This split will include a new song from each band.
BEFORE THE RAIN are scheduling a tour over Europe on this year's fall (promoters get in touch)
