Yes, yes, I know. It’s been a while since you heard from me and/or the band. The last time, before all the re-releases, we spoke about the “Suits and Fragments” album. Well… there’s good news and bad news.
The good news is, it’s going well with the collection of songs for the “Suits and Fragments”-album. The bad news is, it has been postponed yet again.
Since working on that album gave Ralf so much new stuff he has decided to start working on a new album first. There are no concrete songs made at this moment. Ralf is working on a musical draft which he hopes to finish this month. After that the actual writing and composing can start, so there is a new album in the making but it will take probably the rest of this year. Of course we will try to keep you up to date with the progress made.
MEKONG DELTA will also start to organize their own tour, since playing only once every two months isn’t very economic. It costs too much just to do one gig, so they’re looking for venues to play more than once or more venues in a general area. If you can provide us with venues for MEKONG DELTA to play meeting these conditions, please let us know. Your input is greatly appreciated.
…and there will be a re-release of the ‘Kaleidoscope’-album on vinyl. The original plan was to do only the first 4 albums, but Ralf decided to do the Kaleidoscope album as well. Keep an eye out on the website to find out when this is going to be released. Due to the rising costs to make vinyl albums, this re-release will be either 140 grams (in stead of the 180 grams like the other 4) or € 1,– on top of the previous price.
