I’m happy, relieved, proud and somehow wistful to announce that my 4th album ‘Of Those Who Drown to Live’ is out from today!
I’ve produced 12 songs and 12 music videos in the last 2 years (nearly an hour of music) – and went to my limit with this piece of art.
I must admit that I have tears in my eyes now – on the one hand because I am happy about this release, on the other hand because I know that this will be the last EWIAN album for a longer while. After four albums and one EP in five years (not to forget a bunch of music videos) I HAVE to slow down.
I hope you understand that. At least you can look forward to 11 music videos in the next 11 months.
I’m pleased about EVERYONE who buys this record – this is my most personal record and it would mean a lot to me.
You can get it on Bandcamp, iTunes and other platforms.
I’d like to thank a bunch of people who helped me to realize this project:
Nataly Zibert (Photos, Camera, and much more)
Tomasz Alen Kopera (Cover art)
Stefan Pätz (3d-Sounds)
Kaja & Piet Lori (Actors)
Arthur Stammlet & Jaime (3d-Fractals)
Dream-Noise Productions (Video Production),
Em Baker aka PLIKE (Collaboration with the song VAST).
Robin Friedel (Guitar, Bass)
Florian Jooß (Drums)
My fans (Love!)
Thank you for your heartfelt support in the last 5 years ♥
I am really happy and proud to say that the third EWIAN album HEART CRASH BOOM BANG is out from today, 3rd March 2017.
People from the whole world already preordered a physical signed copy via Bandcamp.
I am deeply grateful to everyone who decides to support my work by purchasing the physical or digital version of the album on one of the listed shops.
I was on the road again to continue with my music video shootings. This time I had to go slumming as the protagonist in this story is located in public places where he is talking to persons who are physically not present, but in his mind.
This was a challenge for me – my goal was to catch glimpses from strangers while I was talking to someone invisible.
I was in Frankfurt again to make further video shootings for a new song called ‘VAST’.
I used new equipment to gain a better depth of focus and also worked the first time with 3d sound recordings (Thanks to Stefan Pätz for the special microphones and supervision).´
On Wednesday my video for my song ‘Love’ was shown at an indie film festival (Zum Goldenen Hirsch) in Heidelberg (Germany). I was invited to be there in order to explain the background of the story. The atmosphere of this evening and choice of the other films was really fabulous. The focus was on unique films with essential messages. I am glad that the actor who represented the seamstress in ‘Love’ (her name is Nilanie) was accompanying me.
I founded EWIAN on 6th March 2013 by the release of the debut EP ‘We Will Never Grow Old’. Thus a few days ago this project had it´s third ‘birthday’. Since then I produced 26 songs and 8 videos overall. Maybe it´s arrogant to make a throwback by now as EWIAN is still young, but I just feel like doing that. In the next few weeks I will make a post on Twitter nearly everyday and sometimes here on WordPress with unpublished photos and information.
Before I start, I will go far afield to a time before EWIAN.
My first real band was care[le]ss (south germany). The guy on the left side is Maximilian (our ex-drummer), now member of the great Get Well Soon:
Here some more pictures of the time with care[le]ss:
Member of care[le]ss was also Benjamin Lachance. He contributed to the first EWIAN releases (‘We Will Never Grow Old’, ‘Good Old Underground’). On the last photo you can see him blurred in the background.
it´s always a weird feeling when the day you´ve worked towards a long time is suddenly there.
Today is this day. Our second full-length album ‘We Need Monsters’ came into the world. The composition and recording of some songs found no trouble and has been freeing, others pushed me to the limit. You will surely notice that. ‘We Need Monsters’ might not be a concept album, but the idea of projection as a means of psychological defense takes center stage.
01 – Ticket From Kingdom Come
02 – Beautiful Lie
03 – Star
04 – Song For The Psychonauts
05 – Sweet Swan
06 – Monster
07 – Quiet Like In Heaven
08 – Some Day
09 – Fragile Ghost
10 – Love
If you think we did a good job and our musical journey is worth to be continued, please order our new album – as always on iTunes or Amazon:
