Some live footage from last year’s release party

Who says you can’t play instrumental prog without rehearsing? πŸ˜€

Here’s some live footage from our little release party last November. We couldn’t find anyone to play keys in time for the gig, so Bartek ended up having to cover at least the essential keyboard parts. The gig was great fun and we hope to play live again soon – then as a quintet with a full-time keyboard player! πŸ™‚

Relocator support The Haiti Projekt – and so should you! :)

The Haiti Projekt is a digital charity compilation that was put together by members of the progressive rock community to raise money for the victims of the recent catastrophic Haiti earthquake. It features music by popular progressive rock artists like Neal Morse, Agents of Mercy (the new band of Flower Kings leader Roine Stolt), Dave Meros (Spock’s Beard) and Andy Tillison (The Tangent). We are proud to be part of this project alongside such big names and have contributed our track called ‘Relocator’.

For just $20 you get 40 tracks, adding up to over four hours of music! And the most important thing about it: All of the proceeds from this compilation will be donated to the Red Cross and its Haiti aid efforts.

So don’t hesitate, do some good and get some great music in return!

Long interview with Stefan (in German) on www.rocktimes.de

An extensive German interview with our guitarist and main composer Stefan Artwin was just posted on the Rocktimes website:
ROCKTIMES – Interview mit Stefan Artwin von Relocator

For those of you who don’t want to play around with online translators and/or are just interested in the news contained in the interview, here’s what Stefan says at the end:

Yes, we’d like to play live, but that’s still in the planning phase. And a second Relocator CD is definitely coming and will probably be released in 2011.

Now also on iTunes! :)

Hey everyone,

our album is now also available from the iTunes Store. πŸ™‚

CD release update

The final Relocator CDs arrived from the pressing plant today just as scheduled. And yet we can’t ship them yet – unfortunately the layout of the CD booklet is totally messed up as you can see in the comparison image below.

How did this happen? We have no idea at this point. We are still waiting for an explanation from the pressing plant and a solution for this unfortunate situation or some kind of schedule for replacements. At least the CDs themselves seem to be fine…

We are sorry for this delay and we’ll keep you updated. Thanks for your patience!

Now streaming the full album on MySpace!

We have now uploaded our entire debut album to our MySpace site. Still no reviews out there that people could go by, so we’ve decided we’d just let everyone find out for themselves if they like the full album as much as the individual tracks and sample medleys that were previously available.

Check it out and let us know what you think! πŸ™‚

And Merry Christmas, everyone!
