After some time recalibrating our strategy as a band considering the ongoing pandemic, we are excited to finally release our new song ‘Ceremonies’. In the early spring of 2020, we released our first album with only a handful of shows under our belt but by April, MI went into full lockdown. Erring on the side of caution we took some time off until hitting rehearsals and recording again as the summer rolled in. ‘Ceremonies’ will be a single for us, not an installment for our sophomore record, but the song does give the listener a sense of how we are growing as a live band (the bulk of the recording was done live).
The plan as of now is to finish up recording a cover of ‘Uninvited’ (Alanis Morsette) that we are working on with vocalist Jessi Golden. This will be a slight departure from our usual long instrumental song format to collaborate with an incredible east Michigan singer that we have become friends with.
Once that single is released, we will hunker down and begin working on our second album. Most of the material for this project is already written and is coming together nicely.
Musical updates aside, our prayers and positive energy go out to all who have experienced tragic loss because of this pandemic. These are hard times that leave no one truly safe. As a band, we will continue to work hard to get more material out to you and keep you updated.
Much Love & Peace – Moses the Black
