Courage Of Conviction Sessions:
Our 3rd album “Courage Of Conviction Part I: Picking Up The Pieces” has a release date of 29th September 2021 pre-order’s are being taken now, here!
“Courage Of Conviction Part II: Live And Learn”, we only have 2 more songs and a few bits and pieces to track and then this album will also be fully ready for mixing…..
Raphael Gazal recently added extra guitars – some killer solo’s to “Hate The Hate”, coming into the fold when Edo Van Der Kolk was unable to do so due to illness.
Rick Curran has joined the team and worked his string arrangement magic on “Memories Of You”, he will next be doing the same on the 13 minute epic “Courage Of Conviction“. Several other songs on upcoming COC material will also be given the RC treatment.
A mid-2022 release date is planned for this album. Unfortunately due to the spread of covid in Australia and New Zealand, we have had to postpone plans for the vocal, writing and filming session we had planned for September. These sessions will be reschedule as soon as it is safe for this to happen.
“Courage Of Conviction Part III: In The Face Of Adversity” & “Courage Of Conviction Part IV: Saving Grace” , we are currently tracking material for both albums. Chris Szkup, Dennis Leeflang, Raphael Gazal, Kyle Whalum, Alice Atkins, Sarah Harralson have all been working on songs from “Courage Of Conviction Part IV: Saving Grace”.
“In Conversation With….” Chris Szkup and Richard Anderson are going to launch a new series of video/audio interviews with various people who have made appearances on The Feckers albums, both core members and special guests…totally unrehearsed and off the cuff, raw as it gets – “hopefully it will be as interesting to others as we know it will be to us to know a bit more about the people we have been working with”.
The next track to get the video treatment will be “Memories Of You” from the “Courage Of Conviction Part II: Live And Learn” album. We are looking at also revisiting a couple of tunes from our previous albums and offering up some form of video treatments to accompany them.
