Netherbird Announces Upcoming Releases

Netherbird has checked in with the following update about the band's upcoming release schedule:

"Greetings all, I just felt an urge to write a bit about what is going on in the Netherbird camp! First off, let me say that 2011 will be one hectic year from us! Last year we finally got Netherbird going for real with some live shows and we are currently more ready than ever when it comes to doing more shows, we simply cannot wait! So we sure hope to be able to gig both in Sweden and abroad. Though these days it is always tricky to know when things start moving, the music business is strange nowadays, but we will keep our focus on live shows and we will always do our best to accept any gig offers we get.

"When it comes to recordings we have decided to step back to the original idea we had back in the day when Netherbird was formed: to record and release our music through the Internet. It gives us a lot more freedom to make releases the way we want them, well worked through shorter things, what was once called EP (Extended Play, a long single). So our next release will be a three track EP that will be released through the Internet. It will be made available on Spotify, iTunes, all other online stores and as a standalone free download mp3+pdf package.

"Why do we choose to do this? Simple: it makes it easier for us to get our music out, we can focus to make more numerous releases and it makes our creations available to everyone instantly. This is what we always wanted to do, to get our music out, and we see the huge figures of our download versions and that is what is leading the way. We also collect the three future EP:s into a third album that will be released also on CD for those that still want that format, all members of the band is among those that still are CD-collectors. But times have changed drastically and we now see the physical album is more a thing of the past and we have always had the idea of keeping Netherbird as a band that is keeping its focus on the future. So there will be online releases and we will collect them on CD's when there is enough material available. More...

"Salutations! Netherbird are working hard to be a band thinking in new ways despite us being quite old school when it comes to both our influences and our music. Being personally present to interact on Myspace and Facebook are just two examples of our dedication to being inclusive towards our listeners/friends/fans (you chose the label).

"We will try to include all sent in photos that are of one single person (no couples or crowds).

Netherbird Parts Ways With Drummer

Sweden's Netherbird has checked in with the following announcement about parting ways with their drummer Adrian Erlandsson:

"Greetings friends, we have a line-up change in the ranks of Netherbird! Due to his jam packed touring schedule which sees Adrian Erlandsson doing extensive touring with Paradise Lost, Brujeria and Nemhain we have mutually decided that he will no longer be a full time member of Netherbird. Netherbird now starts to hit the live stages and will require more time from all members and it is therefore no longer possible for Adrian to act as our full time drummer. We are of course sad since he was a very vital part both of the sound and the great chemistry that is the basis for this band but sometimes practical issues makes it necessary to make alterations no matter how painful. Adrian is a close friend and we will miss greatly and we will proudly keep supporting our good friend in all ways, always!

"His replacement is already found and Erik Röjås (also drummer in Swedish melodic thrash act Decadence) will now hammer the drums for Netherbird both live and in the studio! We know we have found a worthy replacement and we are proud to welcome him into the ranks of this dark beast. Despite his mere 22 years of age he has already years of experience both from the studio and in the live environment so we are confident he has what it takes! So we hope you all will give him a warm welcome! Erik will of course also carry on as the drummer for Decadence! See you all soon!"

Netherbird Posts New Album Teaser Trailer

Sweden's Netherbird has posted a teaser trailer online for their upcoming third album, which can be found after the jump. The band has also issued the following statement about the upcoming album:

"Right now we have the basis for the third Netherbird album written in the sense that guitarist Bizmark has made the basic demo tracks where he has put down two guitar tracks, keyboards, basic bass and drum tracks! The process is now that I (Nephente) will give these tracks proper names and write my lyrics for them. Then me and Bizmark will do some tests in the studio with my lyrical sketches and we might extended certain parts, delete others until we have tunes we feel are ‘done’. Then the rest of the guys will arrange their parts but I will return to the next step in the process…

"But now YOU have the chance to hear some short excerpts from the tracks I got from Bizmark, so what you hear is what I hear! So right now I am listening to the full length demos to give them names and to write the basic lyrics for them, next step me and Bizmark will sit down to try these ideas out! But that is for the next report! Our goal is to have it all recorded and done sometime during early autumn but the release date is most likely a bit later! Enough of my words, start the player and hear some of the stuff that will end up on our third full length album! Horns up!" More...

Netherbird Seeking Fan For Music Video

Netherbird has issued the following update about seeking fan submissions for an upcoming music video:

"Netherbird has always been, and will always be, about the most important aspect of our music: YOU. It is the listeners that makes us matter, the people who listen to our distorted tones and wicked riddles that makes us go on, always. Back in 2008 we released the online ep/mcd 'Lighthouse Eternal (Laterna Magika)' where we placed almost 4000 photos, one for each friend we had on myspace in those days. Today there are 86.000+ friends so that is no longer possible for us... but we will do something equally new to let each and everyone interested to be part of our art able to be seen!

"We are done recording our next mcd humbly entitled 'Monument Black Colossal' and one of the songs will have a very special video where YOU will be the most important part! So what we now want is for you to either send a photo or a video (webcam, hd, digicam whatever) and we will proudly put you into it! That way you will be a part of something that will be around for damn long time: Netherbird. Participate using a photo - Upload it on our website here. You will also be seen on the website from the time you upload the photo. More...
