New album on the way from Mostly Autumn
2:18pm Friday 17th August 2012 in Music news and reviews
YORK classic rock band Mostly Autumn will release new album The Ghost Moon Orchestra on September 3 on their own Mostly Autumn Records label.
The record will be distributed via Universal Music, but a collectors’ edition with a bonus acoustic disc can only be ordered online at mostly-autumn.com
The one-disc version is available from that website too.
Recording, engineering and mastering was done at Fairview Studios, Hull, by John Spence, who mixed the album with band leader, guitarist, principal songwriter and producer Bryan Josh.
Josh is joined in the line-up by lead vocalist Olivia Sparnenn, keyboards player Iain Jennings, bassist Andy Smith, drummer Gavin Griffiths, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Anne-Marie Helder and rhythm guitarist Liam Davison.
Both Sparnenn and Jennings have co-written songs with Josh. The track listing will be: Unquiet Tears; Drops Of The Sun; The Devil And The Orchestra; The Ghost Moon Orchestra; This Ragged Heart; King Of The Valley; Things That We Notice; Tennyson Mansion; Wild Eyes Skies; and Top Of The World.
As ever, Josh and co draw on influences from the golden age of Seventies rock, a formula that won them the Best Band of 2011 vote in the Classic Rock Society poll.
Mostly Autumn will play a home-city gig on their Ghost Moon Orchestra Tour at the Grand Opera House on December 6 at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £22 on 0844 871 3024.
