July update

As you might have realized, after a successful one week stint at the SAS in Delémont & the final record release show, we’ve decided to work together some more, and so swiss instrumental post rockers/sludge masters Ølten have now been added to Fireantmusic’s booking roster, plus I’ll follow them as much as possible as a live audio engineer – New dates should be announced soon, here’s what we’ve got so far:

Sept 11: Eberitas, Zürich/ZH (w/ When The Light Dies)
Oct 05: Galerie du Sauvage, Porrentruy/VD (w/ Killbody Tuning)
Oct 19: Bar King, Neuchâtel/VD (w/ Dustcharger)
Oct 25: TBA, La Chaux-De-Fonds/NE
Dec 08: Usine, Genève/GE

Feel free to check them out here, and drop me a line at if you feel like setting up a show or adding them to your line up!

In other news, I’ve been busy tracking and editing/mixing/mastering some additional songs for the electro hillbillies from Haute Volta, the music is now almost off to the pressing plant – You can check out a first clip featuring a song from the upcoming album right here! Plus they’re looking for some crowdfunding to cover expenses for their album, so go here if you feel like supporting them!

After two off shows w/ the mighty Cortez in Linz/AU and the Czech Republic, I headed straight for the JazzParade Fribourg as they were in dire need for a stage manager / backliner. Got to work with great national and international artists such as Mama Rosin, Jah Man Gang, Jim The Barber, DeeDee Brigewater & Ramsey Lewis, Arturo Sandoval, Nina Hagen, etc. After a couple of days of getting to know the people and the gear we started to run things smoothly. Except for the usual issues, the festival went down quite well from there on.

Here’s me taking over monitors for a few:

After a couple of days off, I’m already neck deep into new things: Coming up are a bunch of off shows w/ Abraham, Zatokrev, KSK, Arkhan and so forth, plus a quick run with german juggernaugt War From A Harlots Mouth supporting Lamb Of God amongst others. Also, I have started working on the upcoming album of The Burden Remains – We are currently looking at songs and figuring out ways to smooth them out… Sounds promising!
