Flowing Tears - New Album Details

German female-fronted gothic metallers Flowing Tears have set "Thy Kingdom Gone" as the title of their new album, tentatively due in October via Ascendance Records.
It will be a concept album containing 12 songs.

Posted by the band on their MySpace site:

''It has probably become the darkest and most intense one we ever did. We are really excited about how this one turned out and can't wait for you to listen to it!
I think we really managed to capture the essence of what Flowing Tears is about: there is tons of really heavy melancholic guitar stuff, tons of atmospheres, and probably the most personal and dedicated lyrics we have ever written.

Somehow the album pretty much breathes the spirit of albums like "Joy parade" or "Jade" in terms of atmosphere and density, even though it..s much heavier. And even though the album feels very homogenous, it is probably our most varied one. There is a lot to discover...you'll be surprised. Expect an intense one. No party music, not meant to have a good time with definitely.

Moreover we are excited to announce that the artwork for the album will be done by Seth Siro Anton, whom some of you might know from the great work he did for Moonspell, Soilwork or Paradise Lost lately.

A release is currently scheduled for October. There is no definite release date yet, but as soon as we have it, we will post it here, along with a complete tracklist and more detailed information.

Flowing Tears - News On The Upcoming Album

German gothic metallers Flowing Tears have posted news on their upcoming album:

We can announce a major update on the upcoming studio album: after some very creative months, we're almost done with the songwriting. There are 12 songs so far, not sure if all of them will find their way to the album or if some new ones might come up at last minute, but we're close to the end of the writing mode. Studios are already booked and the production will start in May. A release is scheduled for autumn.

"We don't want to reveal too much about the material yet, but I can tell you it sounds much more atmospheric than we used to sound on our last few albums. Some of the songs have that certain mood that reminds me of what we did on albums like "Jade" or "Joy parade" while still having the power of the stuff from the "Razorbliss" era. Way less synths this time and way more guitars. There's heavy stuff, there's trippy stuff — and there's some serious doomy stuff. Terribly pessimistic lyrics by the way

"There's no working title yet, but some of the songs that are finished so far are entitled 'Pain Has Taken Over', 'Words Before You Leave', 'Until The End' and 'For My Enemies'."

Flowing Tears - Updates From The Band

June 01/2007 - The tears are still flowing...

Since rumours are spreading and we´re drowning in mails we thought it might be a good idea to let you all know what´s going on in the FT camp: As you surely have noticed the release of an upcoming album is postphoned and it has been quiet here for a while.

The reason for that is that while starting writing the new album we realized we were trapped in a kind of album/tour/album circle and felt a little bit burned out, so even though we had already pre-produced some songs we decided to take an off-time for a while rather than recording an uninspired album just to fulfill business rules or expectations. Well, this while has become quite a while indeed, and some things have changed meanwhile. We parted ways with Century Media records with whom we worked together for seven years and archieved more than we ever dreamt of, but lately felt like a part of a machinery rather than a creative band.

Well, what does this all mean now? No, this doesn´t we we have disbanded, on the contrary. After we had taken a break and taken some neccessary changes on the business side we have now started working as a band again and it feels damn good writing songs again. As business-things always take a while we´re still in negotiations with several record labels as we want to make sure to consider all options we have for taking the best choice for the band´s future.

Well, and to prove you all we´re still alive, here´s some more news: Flowing tears are confirmed for this year´s Metal female voices Festival, taking place in Wieze/Belgium on October 20th. Apart from that we´re right now in studio working on the mixes of live recordings we had taped during the 2004 semi acoustic tour. Sounds fantastic and we can´t wait to share this different side of some FT classics with you. These recordings will probably be released as a live album in the near future to shorten the wait for the upcoming studio album. Ok, so much for now. More will follow soon. Really soon this time. We promise. ;-)

Helen, Ben, Stefan & Frederic.

Flowing Tears - Updates

02.March.2006
Hell-o everybody
Yes, we´re still alive and walking among the dead. We know we haven´t updated this site that often in the last few months, and we know that for some suspicious, distrusting minds this could seem as if nothing happens in the FT camp - but you´re all wrong. The work on the new album is in good progress and if the devil is with us the album will definetely be released within 2006. Until then we decided to let you participate in the carthatic agony of writing an album by dropping some personal notes and comments on the progress of our work in form of a diary. If you´re lost, sleepless or just have nothing better to do - feel free to act as a voyeur and go on reading.

Let me give you some facts first to give you an update of what´s going on actually. In the last few weeks we were working hard on some songs we´re really in love with. Yesterday Helen came over to track some vocals which sound quite different from what you might know from her, but definetely add a new dimension to the FT sound. It´s maybe too early to reveal any songtitles yet, but we´ll add more and more details with every update. Oh, and for all of you, who might ask us about a general schedule - I can reveal that our plan is to enter the studio in June/July and probably you all can enjoy some new stuff then later this year, sounds like a plan, doesn´t it?

Ok, more news and personal notes from some of us will follow in irregular updates during the next weeks - until then - praise the lord satán! ;-)

goodnight.
ben.

Flowing Tears: Starts Working on New Material

Germany's FLOWING TEARS have posted the following message on their web site:

"Right now we're about to start writing new songs and developing our vision of the next album. We will take all the time we might need to explore some exiting new ground without any pressure of a deadline in mind, and we're sure this process will enable us to deliver some great new material… that will be our focus for the first half of 2005. We'll keep you posted about the progress of our work… Nevertheless, we'll play a few well chosen festivals and shows during these months, so check the tour dates section from time to time! A few shows are already announced - some more will follow..."

FLOWING TEARS' most recent album, "Razorbliss", was released in March 2004 through Century Media Records. The follow-up to 2002's "Serpentine" was recorded at Woodhouse Studios in Hagen, Germany with producer Waldemar Sorychta (THE GATHERING, LACUNA COIL, SENTENCED, MOONSPELL) and is the band's first to feature vocalist Helen Vogt, who replaced Stefanie Duchêne in 2003.

Upcoming FLOWING TEARS shows:

Feb. 27 - Tilburg, NETH - 013
Apr. 30 - Liège, BEL - Soundstation

Flowing Tears - Two Founding Members Dead!

On October 20, two founding members of the German goth metal band FLOWING TEARS, Björn Lorson and Christian Zimmer, died in a tragic car accident, according to a posting on the group's web site. "Even though they already left the band in '95 and '96 (Björn after the first demo tape 'Bijou' and Christian after 'Swansongs'), FLOWING TEARS may never have existed if they hadn't been," the band write. "We will keep you in our minds and hearts. These days we take a breath to listen to the tunes of songs such as 'Flowing Tears & Withered Flowers' or 'Waterbride' — while mourning about two young people who had to die much too early. Rest in peace guys — we will never forget you!"

FLOWING TEARS kicked off a European tour with SAMAEL late last month. The band are touring in support of their new album, "Razorbliss", which was released in March through Century Media Records. The follow-up to 2002's "Serpentine" was recorded at Woodhouse Studios in Hagen, Germany with producer Waldemar Sorychta (THE GATHERING, LACUNA COIL, SENTENCED, MOONSPELL) and is the band's first to feature vocalist Helen Vogt, who replaced Stefanie Duchêne last year.
