Ex-The Haunted singer Peter Dolving has launched an outfit dubbed House Of Dolving. In addition to their own music, the group will also perform material from his various past outfits, including The Haunted, MaryBeatsJane and more. Here’s what he had to say about the group in his own words:
“House Of Dolving.
Sounds kinda cheesy and pretencious. But I like it. And it the only way that can offer a way to explain/present what the hell I/we are doing.
So far this has been losely knit. Slowly growing more stable.
I am putting a core liveband together with Johan Reivén(LOK, InAPigsEye, Thåström etc.), Peter Asp(Bombus, MaryBeatsJane, Stillborn, Is 9 etc), and Thomas Brandt(LOK etc.)
Guest musicians/artists will appear.
We will rock songs by Peter Dolving, MaryBeatsJane, The Haunted, Zen Monkey, BringTheWarHome etc. etc.
I intend having this machine up and rolling by November 2012.
This will be a touring entity of sorts, when you see House of Dolving on the bill, that means you can expect some of the best and coolest live musicians performing with me, and sometimes without me, playing really fucking good music.
The first outing for House Of Dolving is this baby; Thieves And Liars.
Peace! / PD”
A song from “Thieves And Liars” titled “Hands On” can be found over at Bandcamp. The project is currently slated for an October 24th release date. Fan-funding is being sought for the group at Fundedbyme.com, with Dolving offering:
“So why the hell don’t I just go to a record company?
Why don’t we just go to one of the indies or Warner, or Sony and say “Here, here’s a great product”
The answer is simple; It would be easy, if they were really interested in traditional capitalism, ai. SELLING A PRODUCT.
Those days are long gone.
The majors are now the people who work there. Their main priorities are not making money for
their companies and their clients/partners(allthough they occasionally by fluke chance do that too…).
Instead the level of intrapersonal agendas and ingroup politics has so deteriorated the construct to the point where the recordlabels have become pointless whales, struggling like obese sealions for their survival. And the people within the structure are more concerned with their own paycheck than their loyalty to their employers.
The indies are too busy finding ways to keep their companies from drowing to have time or a genuine interest in individual artists.
