This is in a lot of ways the most special record I have ever done. Believe it or not, all of these songs were written during the same Tuesday afternoon – hence the name – a month before the release of our debut album. December 18th, 2018 that was.
Sometimes magic just hits you like lightning, although I certainly wasn't feeling magical that particular afternoon. On the contrary, I felt depressed, extremely annoyed and completely worn down by work and life in general. Lucky for me, I found myself on a break with a guitar nearby. I picked it up and wrote all of these songs in the space of 45 minutes. Not all of the lyrics, mind you – I'm not a savant! – but all of the chords, melodies and lyrical ideas were suddenly there.
Now when I started recording these songs I decided to put them on this EP in the exact same order I wrote them because I realized that together they painted a story. These songs depict a journey from a place of depression and hopelessness to finding a new source of strength within oneself and even joining a revolution to overthrow systemical social inequality in the end!
My hope is that you find the journey on this EP inspiring, and maybe the brash optimism of the last two songs will even put a smile on your face.
Thanks for being here with me and the guys.
Peace & Love,
