We have had so many fans getting in touch asking us for a new release and one which would harken back to our early days with, but with a twist, so how could we resist the calls, so we have banged our heads together and pulled in the resources to produce this out last album.
Why Is It The Last Remergence Album?
Sadly due to all the time constraints that both myself and Karen have we don’t have the time to sit down and work for hours and days at a time of material, so we wanted to produce one last piece of work that would bring in the sounds and feel of our earlier work, some of the tracks will have some guests on and some are tracks which we have pulled in the past and now decided to re-tweak for the last release.
What Are You Going To Get With The Last Remergence Album?
We have taken the sound back to Wide Open Space, but added a new feel with several tweaks and samples, we have decided to use almost anything we can get our hands on for the sound and have pulled all the sample discs in to one place to bring as much as we can from older workings in to the last album.
The album will be our way of saying thanks to everyone for supporting us and for listening and purchasing the albums, tracks etc. It’s a hard decision to end the run, but time is always a constant, but as Karen always tells me, “The Phoenix is a wonderful creature”.
We will release the album as download only and it will be available as a “Pay as you want” release, hopefully you guys will dip in your pockets for us and pay some nice pennies for the release.
Keep an eye on the blog and on the Official Remergence Twitter and we will bring you more updates over the next couple of months.
Thanks for your support everyone and remember, music will always be in our lives as it is yours…
Hey everyone JJ here with a little bit of special news for you all, now if you have seen the news lately there has been some terrible floods in St Asaph and Rhuddlan and 500 homes were evacuated in St Asaph and people lives have been destroyed by the power of the River Elwy.
Now I’m posting here as Karen is extremely busy lately with a little something special, but more on that later
We have decided that proceeds from sales of our music purchased on BandCamp will go to the North Wales Flood Relief Fund, we want to try to give as much as we can to those in need, so hopefully you will all dip in your pockets and purchase our music and then we can donate whatever is made to the Flood Victims.
Simply visit our BandCamp page at http://remergence.bandcamp.com and grab the music and let’s try and make loads to help those in need at this terrible moment.
News On Karen’s Hard Work For Her Blog.
Now a lot of you know that my partner in crime is extremely popular lately, she has taken on the mantel of “Blogger and Online Journalist” and not only does she produce one heck of a blog called Blazing Minds, but she also spends a lot of time reviewing films for her local cinema and then reviewing them on the local radio station called @PointFMRhyl. I blame Karen for her lack of time for our new album
It doesn’t stop there though, over the years Karen has got to know several artists via the work she does and she is now working hard and trying to do a Christmas Party/Flood Fundraiser to help the St Asaph Flood Victims.
I seriously don’t know where she gets all the energy from, anyway, she has some great artists confirmed to take time out of their busy schedules to perform all in the aid of raising money.
But sadly she has hit a wall! Karen is trying to get a venue in the Llandudno, Colwyn Bay, Abergele, Rhyl or Prestatyn area, that are willing to put on her event for free. I’ve known Karen for many years and she’s one hell of a hard worker and music and journalism have always been a passion of hers, so putting on this event means so much to her, that she can help others.
So not only has she said we will give all our sales of Remergence track/albums, but she is working her ass off to try to get this event on, so that she give help St Asaph and the people who have had their lives devastated by this tragedy right before Christmas.
Putting The Call Out For Karen aka Blazing Minds
This is my big shout out, to any venues in the area mentioned to get in touch with Karen via her blog, Blazing Minds and give her a venue for free to raise some money and give people a damn good show, I’ve seen the artists she’s already got and boy oh boy, they ROCK, top marks to Karen for getting everyone.

We’ve recently hand several emails and DMs etc, asking us why people can’t get hold of our album Standing in the Shadows on our Bandcamp page, so I thought it may be time to let you know exactly why!
Putting it simply, it’s been a time issue, it takes a while to upload the album to Bandcamp due the size of the files, they are not uploaded as MP3 files, they are loaded up in either WAV or FLAC format and this does take time.
Quick post up today, just to let you know we are still around
So it’s now the weekend, a chance for us to play around with some tracks, tweek them and possible add some to the list of finished tracks for the next release
I think we’ve become very relaxed lately when it comes to new tracks and though we do take our time, the last time we did that we came up very ambient tracks
Anyhew we are still working on tracks and having fun doing it, so as I always say, keep your eyes peeled and your ears open for any latest updates and possible exclusive tracks.

Of course we had to limit the amount been given away, but so far the response has been great and I may even do this again sooner or later as another ReverbNation fan exclusive give away.

Ok Remergence fans, we’re trying something a little new with this post. To enable us to update this blog a little more frequently, we have decided to give the WordPress app for BlackBerry a shot.
So hopefully we can keep you all posted a little more with what’s going on and where it’s happening, so in the near future some posts will be a tad shorter, a bit like this one, and will be updating you with the latest news.
