2020 VISION album now complete

So, it’s all in motion now. That odd period for an artist between being consumed with writing an album, then having to wait endlessly until it’s out and you get to hear it. You’re supposed to ‘shut up’ at this point and get on with preparing for concerts to play the material, but I’m still on the high of having worked my ears to the bone (if that’s possible) to the point of ear-blindness, a well-known ailment of the self-mixing musician.

Anyway, its done, and its a new chapter in what that Sieben-sound truly is. I know Kev has mightily improved the oomph of those beats, and the fastness of the bass sound. But he also appears on the album in conversation with me. and then it gets more bizarre.

Release in Sept 2020 – but if you’re signed up here, or coming to my live DVD recording concerts announced earlier today, then you’ll get the chance to have it a lot sooner than that, as you are my faithful flock. I’m also toying with the idea of several layers of tiered release, for instance; just the CD (with government information sheet on how to poke your own eyes out, and with cut-out 3D specs with no lenses, of course) or CD and limited edition lathe-cut vinyl single; 2 x 10″ clear, lathe-cut vinyl; Sieben leather violin bag etc – We shall see…

The track listing for the album is as follows:

1 We’re All Fucked’ Kev / 2 Enzosonbenzos / 3 Reckoning Beckoning / 4 Death Tape Updated For 2020 / 5 Shirt Of The Apocalypse / 6 Berylsinperil / 7 Vision / 8 The Darkness You Have Drawn / 9 You, My Cult Of Blight / 10 Come And Ride In The Cult Of Light / (bonus track) 11 Can’t Get You

And here’s a sneak preview of the not quite finished cover for the album:

Hope to see many of you on the road in the next few months, zombieCoronaVirusApocalypse-not withstanding. Or at my Live DVD recordings in June. The tickets for are now in my shop and for sale! If you’re coming from further afield and want help with accommodation, getting to Sheffield from airport, or good food and drink in Sheffield then just email me and I will help ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m planning on doing two sets on each of the two nights, so covering material pretty much from the dawn-of-time Sieben to Apocalyptic-end Sieben and albums in between. Only 70 spaces per night, these will be special and bespoke evenings ๐Ÿ™‚

Releases Sept 2020

Kickstart vinyl off in the post to you!

I’ve sent out all the Kickstart vinyls, they are on their way to you ๐Ÿ™‚

The original woodcuts are now all sold out. I’m getting a different design sorted, for any of you who’d still like a Kickstart woodcut with Empire Seeds! Be careful what you grow.

Got lovely gigs under my belt this year, and more of the same in the next few months, including Louth, Cumbria, Manchester, Bonn and Lobau in Germany, and a Lisbon date to be announced soon.

And something new is forming in my mind, I can feel it.

You’ll be the first to know ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for your interest, as always,

Matt – August 2019

vinyl apologies!

Hi all! Many vinyl apologies for those of you who ordered it. Good news is its on its way to being finished, as the machine is now being tested ready to cut copies once more. I shall email each and every one of you as soon as I’ve posted your copy. Thanks for your patience- and hope you are at least enjoying the Extended Digital EP already ๐Ÿ™‚

Tramlines in Sheffield was brilliant- so many great gigs throughout the city- and was really feeling the love at my two gigs, which were immense. Thanks to everyone who came to those, and especially those of you who travelled some distance – impressive and much appreciated! Next week, Germany and a mini-farm-much-fun-festival, the week after in the company of Rosa Crux at their delightful festival in Northern France.

After that I’m in Louth at The Priory, and very much looking forward to playing and staying there. Which will bring me to September and a gig in Cumbria for Barry The Astonishing himself… I’m also looking for concerts for the night before/after, in the area, so if anyone near Preston/Clitheroe/Lancs/Cumbria has any suggestions, or better still wants to book myself and Andy Whitehouse then drop me a line ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a lovely summer.
