Here are some photos from our set at The Bioscope, courtesy of main-man Jacob Israel.

Now I'm jealous that I had my back to the screen the whole time. Pfft...

20-20 Hindsight

It seems the longer you avoid updating a blog, the easier it gets to avoid updating it.

Truth be told, we really don't like empty blog-posts, so we've been waiting to post something worthwhile (although we've missed a few opportunities with pretty gig posters and another music video).

So, since our last update, the following has happened:
- We've played three wonderful gigs in Johannesburg in the last few months: The delightful Wolves Cafe as part of their Howl series

A subdued gig at Kitchener's as part of master scene supporter Ri's "Ssshh..." series with the talented Givan Lotz

The Bioscope with our mind-bending friends Fulka and Jacob Israel.

If you've got pictures of any these events, please "hook us up" as the kids would say.

- We've released our songs digitally on eMusic, iTunes (UK & US) and Spotify.

- We released our third video "An easy battle, a lost war". This video was shot by the ridiculously talented We Love Pictures. We heart them.

- ASOF collaborated with The Ocean Doesn't Want Me guys to perform, of all things, the Chris de Burgh song "I'm not scared anymore" at CF's wedding. We might be posting a video of that.

- We've started crafting a few new songs. All of them seem to have a common theme, so we might be going all Prog and doing it concept album style. Currently we're considering an EP format, but we're going to have a hard time deciding on which songs to put on there. Also, we'll probably drop the rough recordings on here as we complete them.

Hmmm, looking at it now, it seems there was a lot to be mentioned. Better late than never I guess.

Slow Monday

Let’s try and not get ahead of ourselves. The battle is far from won you know, But! We will have some albums available, at R 120.00 from the brilliant Wolves Cafe from Monday, 6 December! As we get the album into more shops, we'll let you know.

If you are not in JHB, but residing somewhere else in ZA, drop us a mail at "askylineonfire at gmail dot com", and we can try to get a disk to you!

We’re currently waiting for a few things to fall into place, and then we’ll have a digital version of the album available, as well.

Instead of hand-packaging the albums like a good little Santa-helper, Werner has been busying himself with some renders of the packaging... Really, really useful. Thanks Werner!
I kid, Maaike and himself has been doing a sterling job of slapping these babies together.

Album Art: And that makes 12

Herewith the last of the album art, and one more song!

Hopefully by next week we'll be able to tell you where to pick up a copy.
