So: 'The bird is not the metaphor' is released on Damnably/Little Red Rabbit on 18th April, 2015. In the UK and Europe it's distributed via Shellshock, and in the US...
Apologies for the lapse in communications. I’ve been updating the Facebook group, but have been a bit reluctant to post ‘nearly news’ here. We were dormant from April until September. Reverse hibernation.
Since then, we’ve been busy, regaining the ground we had occupied until the ‘accidentally moving house’ incident. And the ‘inadvertently ruining a finger’ incident. And the ‘unfortunately being laid low by actual influenza’ incident.
Anyway, we are recording most of the new LP next weekend, fate and fortune permitting. And the remainder of it we hope to finish off the following weekend (violin and vocals). We’ll hold off mixing until after Christmas, but whichever way you look at it, there will be a new Clamp record in 2013. And it will probably be called ‘The bird is not the metaphor.’
