A few quotes from the band
Craig Ellis / drums:
“The song is about the unforeseen natural disasters that can happen almost without warning, leaving a huge impact on life. It’s also about the risks we take, be it gambling, in the hope that we become wealthy and the incredible yet crazy, adventurous things people do, not always knowing what’s at the end of the adventure. Many of these things are reflected in the accompanying video. When either Jack or I hit a stumbling block we share what we have – having completed the verses and bridges I passed it to Jack who completed it with the chorus. “
Jack Meille / vocals:
“I remember when I got the demo version of this song: a live take with Craig singing the verses. I read the lyrics and the line “this is my destiny, written in stone for me” instinctively came to my mind. I still don’t know why and I probably don’t want to know it; I rather be surprised every time this magic happens!”
The “Ritual” will be released on the 22nd of November 2019. It will be their second album with Mighty Music and also the second recording by the current line-up. The album was recorded at ex Tygers’ guitarist Fred Purser’s studio in Newcastle Upon Tyne and mixing and additional production was again conducted by Soren Andersen, most recently known for his role as Glenn Hughes’ guitarist. Mastering done by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem).
