It looks like Cloudkicker are working on new music. Ben Sharp shared the below teasers from the sessions:
Cloudkicker has released his new album “Solitude” ahead of schedule via Bandcamp. The effort will also hit streaming services on September 8.
Cloudkicker has released a remastered version of his 2013 album “Subsume“ via Bandcamp. This version of the effort also comes with a new bonus track titled “Two Moons.“ Cloudkicker said the following about that song:
“‘Two Moons‘ is a track I wrote in 2013 and never used for ‘Subsume‘ or anything else. I forgot about it until I rediscovered it in August 2020.”
Cloudkicker has released a new song titled “Ludendorffbrücke.” This track will appear on his new album “Solitude,” which is set to be released on September 8. In other news, Cloudkicker will also be launching pre-orders for a number of other releases on September 4. This includes a “Beacons” 10-Year Anniversary and “Bulk of the Series” box set, a 2xLP “Solitude” vinyl, and a new shirt. Details regarding all of those can be found in the below Instagram post.
Cloudkicker has released a new version of “Not To Scale Or Painted” featuring Intronaut‘s Sacha Dunable. This track is from his new album “Solitude,” which will be released on September 8. Cloudkicker mastermind Ben Sharp commented:
“Hey all, here is track 9 of my new album ‘Solitude,’ which is a re-recorded version of ‘Not to Scale or Painted‘. The song was reworked a bit, with some new additions by Sacha Dunable of Intronaut. He and I also worked together on ‘What They Do Is Not Art,’ which will be track 2 of the album.”
Ben Sharp has confirmed that he has finished a new Cloudkicker album titled “Solitude.“ On top of that, he is also planning some new vinyl reissues.
Sharp said the following:
“Hey, hello. Just wanted to say hi and thanks for everything over the years. I have two things that I’m excited about right now.
First, I’m going to reissue Beacons, Let Yourself Be Huge, Fade, and Subsume as a 4xLP set. New artwork, audio has been reworked, Subsume has been remastered. 500 copies, hand-numbered, signed. The works. I’d like to do more copies but they’re ridiculously expensive to produce so this will probably be it.
Second, I finished a new album called Solitude. It’s 49 minutes long and will be a 2xLP. I had 94 straight days at home not working, and this is how I spent it. 8 hours a day, every day. 2 tracks feature Sacha Dunable from Intronaut doing cool stuff like slide guitar and mellotron and using all sorts of strange pedals. The digital version has been mastered by my old friend Erol Ulug from the disgustingly heavy band Teeth. The vinyl is being mastered by Dan Wilburn who mastered the latest Intronaut record.
I don’t know when these things are going to be released but I’m hoping I can coincide one or both of them with the 10th anniversary of Beacons on 9/16/20.
Also I am going to make new t shirts soon.
Thanks again, I hope everyone is doing ok.
