A Lightningheart Records Newsburst



So I thought i'd take this opportunity to talk about Lightningheart Records, my little record label that I set up last year!

So far, we've had 6 releases, 4 of which have been available as free downloads from www.lightningheartrecords.tk, and 3 of which are available to buy as real CD's. Nice! My favourite release so far has definitely been the "Something Old, Something New" compilation, the packaging really worked out how I wanted it :D felt logos for the win.

In the next few months, I think I'm gearing up for 2 main releases. Firstly, my new album as teamABC, which is (still) going under the working title of "Hello Symmetry". It might actually end being called that you know! So far, it's gearing up to be around 11 tracks of alternative pop-indie, with instruments and hooks a plenty. It's going to be the first proper, proper, proper teamABC album, although Hurry Up, Hurricane was fairly proper. However, Hello Symmetry is going to see a proper physical release, and the packaging is going to be amazing. Trust me on that! You'll see concept images and stuff very soon. Good times! The album will also be available via all the usual download sites, iTunes etc etc, and there might be a free download single nearer the time of release. When's it coming out you ask? End of March. We'll say End of March.

It might be later than that. The artwork ideas i'm having at the moment might take a while to come together. Oh and finishing the music too. Haha!

Also on the agenda is the new release from Ben Forrester, formerly known as Testing Testing 123, formerly know as Ben Forrester ;) He will be releasing an amazing new EP around Easter time, and having heard some of the demos, I can say that it's going to sound amazing. More news to come on that as well!

Right, I'm going to have a mess with artwork ideas now... More Lightningheart News coming soon!
