Hello Random Encountites,
There have been several months of radio silence, but we have two important things to tell you about.
First things first: we’re releasing an album soon! We’ve been talking about this project for a long time, and we’re finally ready to inject our hard work into your aural cavities. The album is entirely original work and might be considered by some to be atmospheric sci-folk space-fi nerd-synth, but doggone it, we will not be pigeon-holed. It’s probably a bit different from what you’d expect from us, but our souls are inside it, and we think you’ll like it. A lot. Many more details to come in the following weeks.
And the second thing: You may have noticed that we haven’t been performing. To be perfectly honest, it’s possible that we won’t be performing again. In effect, Random Encounter has been mothballed. This saddens every one of us in the group. It’s been a significant part of us for so long, we kinda don’t remember what life was like before it. Some of the performances we’ve shared with you all have been pure magic. If you stay connected to the FB, Twitter, website or any other form of our social media (which we hope you do!), we’ll have more to say on this subject.
We wanted to at least let everyone know about this development. We’ve been silently mulling this over and brooding for far too long.
We completely understand the absurdity of releasing a record while we are non-functional. But that’s where the weird, erratic undulations of life have led us. At a time like this, all we can think of to say is: thank you for turning a passion-project by a few nerds into something more. We hope you stay tuned for at least a little bit longer.
