UK Progressive metal stalwarts Dakesis have announced that the title of their new album will be ‘Fractures’, and will be released worldwide on March 28th 2020 via the band’s own label CapsaArx Records.
They will celebrate the release with a grand launch show at the iconic Asylum venue in the hometown of not only the band but heavy metal itself – Birmingham,UK.
They have launched an ambitious crowdfunding campaign for the project, with exclusive rewards, album pre-sales, bundles and tickets for the launch show spectacular all now available at www.Dakesis.com/store.
Dakesis have made the following statement regarding their decision to crowd-fund and self release the album via their own label – CapsaArx Records “We decided to crowdfund the album via our own website – it’s really just an elevated way of offering pre-sales, but it lets our fans play a part in the whole process from production to the final product – we’re doing this together.” Bass player Amie Chatterley goes on to say “We knew that we wanted to involve the fans in a crowdfunding campaign for this album, but with the crash of Pledge Music we knew that we had to do it ourselves – I guess it doesn’t matter how far we go, we will always be a DIY-or-die band at heart, and this way the fans know that every penny is going straight to the campaign with no middle man taking a slice from the top – every contribution means better quality merch, a higher production tour, more content for the fans who made it possible! By crowdfunding through our own website, we can also give our fans the guarantee that they will receive their orders because we have complete control of the whole process.”
‘Fractures’ is being mixed by Matt Jones at CapsaArx Studios with mastering duties again taken by Svante Forsback of Chartmakers (Dragonforce, Apocalyptica, Rammstein, Sonata Arctica) and featuring artwork by Seventh Sky Media.
With four long years since the band’s last full album, fans and critics alike eagerly await the results of such a long production period. Frontwoman Gemma Lawler says “There has been so much attention to detail given to “Fractures”, we’ve definitely taken the band in a more progressive direction in places, but there’s still the big choruses, the epic crescendos – it’s another big story arc, but it’s different to The New Dawn, it’s darker, it’s more honest…”
