Breaking Fuel.. from a quintet, has turned into a duet!!
just as saturated with openness, looking for journey of sounds and encounters of the living.
Having been invited by the Clouds Hill studio, recorded a large part of their next album in Hamburg, here is the 1st 7"(45 RPM) "MAKE" extract from their future album “Make Our Delay Great Again”
Breaking Fuel’s leaders tends to gaze at the stars and their album takes root in the surroundings of Bordeaux -France - using drum&bass storming, to fly away in the clouds of the Clouds Hill studio in Hamburg - Germany (Bosnian Rainbows, Omar Rodriguez Lopez, Pete Doherty, At The Drive-in, Gone Is Gone, Faust...)
Back on Earth, the band has chosen Paris to complete the whole album with the producer / sound engineer Camille Jamain (Studio de l’Atelier) for the production/preproduction process, additional recordings and the final mix (En Veux Tu? En V'là!, Le Cirque électrique, "Le réveil des Tropiques"...
He had already mixed their previous opus "More More More" and he's back in tip top shape for the pleasure of our connoisseur ears.
"When we were there, we got a warm welcome from the team of the studios’ team! The main protagonist of the session, Sebastian Muxfeldt, beautifully succeeded in handling our rock n’ roll fever!
Thanks to him and to all the teams there, this fabulous trip (not a bad one!) will stay forever in our hard disk memories, stimulating all our senses! We keep these precious updates in mind, whether on an artistic, human or technical point of view and we wish most people could live that kind of creative moments, which is so important in the life of a band."
In the meantime, due to bloody COVID, they were forced to take their time (additional recordings were done between Paris and Lacanau as they had to adapt to the situation as well as they could) and they also could rely on the renewal of the support of great guests such as Adrián Terrazas González (The Mars Volta, TRAM...), Matthieu Lesenechal (Big Sir, Lisa Papineau...) and also of a very inspiring man for the world in co-construction for all mankind, Alain Damasio (author of "La Zone du Dehors", "La Horde du Contrevent", "Les Furtifs").
They've also decided again to work with the illustrator/visual artist DERIK for the creation of the artwork and japanese artist Ema Kawanago for the enhancement of the fundraising campaign among other things to come...
With the help of Camille, Jean-Charles Bastion ("composer for "Paris is Us" movie) gave them the right to attend the mastering session in his intergalactic studio at MER/NOIR in Paris and it was an unforgettable experience!
Hope you'll dig it!
