Their new album, BLOMLJUD, is supposed to be released in February.

You can listen to samples in their myspace - http://www.myspace.com/wespintheworld
 
 
From their Myspace and website:
"

BLOMLJUD - 2008 release

The release of our second album is as you have figured by now delayed. The hundred minutes of music that comprises "BLOMLJUD" proved to be a more timeconsuming task than we initially thought. The final touches were added at Petters house a month back and then the package was delivered to our mixmaster Henrik Wiklund.

Now... the problem is that he has to juggle his daytime job, recording for other bands and handling our mix!
Also, since he was not part of our team in the studio he needs time to get to know the songs, he has not worked with progressive music before and as you can imagine 30+ minute songs can take a while to get straightened out.

However... we were actually listening to a rough mix of half the album in the van travelling to the Skövde gig last friday, and i must say that it exceeded our expectations! The rhythm section, drums expecially, cut through the mix in a much better way than on "Doorway" and the overall sound of each instrument is very much improved since the last recording.
However, we still have a bit to go! In a week or so weŽll start getting more involved in the mixing process but to be honest we are still cirka two months away from releasing our baby back into the wild...

We know you guys are anxious to hear the final results, but then again so are we! The cover is coming along nicely though. Petters "Blomljud"
interpretation looks good on canvas and we are off to the local museum next week to get it photographed, after that weŽll start working the booklet etc.

Thanks for your patience, we will talk to Henrik and set a definitive releasedate soon, so youŽll know when we do. For those of you who have yet not seen the tracklist for BLOMLJUD:

cd1.

1. Constant Bloom (1.40)
2. Methuselah's Children (15.45)
3. In The Countryside (5.45)
4. Moonwalk (8.50)
5. Bluebells (9.50)
6. The Ghost Of Flowers Past (9.40)

cd2.

7. Yasgur's Farm (8.00)
8. Lady Of The Woodlands (3.30)
9. A Tale Of Three & Tree (3.20)
10. The Other Half Of The sky (31.40)
11. To Sail Beyond The Sunset (4:50)

Soon, oh soon the light!!!Have a little faith, it's coming your way..."

 
 

Some samples!

Some good news today guys and girls, I've added two new songs to our playlist. They are of course at a low bitrate "thanks" to Myspace and unmastered, but still... it's something! ;)


Things are really moving along now. The record will almost surely be out in February. Check out the new songs and comment back, cheers!

Did they have to do a 100 min., double CD? I'm already bored. I'll finish to listen to it in 2016. What about a EP edition?
