Cloudkicker Finish New Album, Plan Vinyl Reissues


Cloudkicker mastermind Ben Sharp shared an update on his current happenings this past Friday, July 10th. It included word of a new album dubbed “Solitude“, which he recently wrapped up. Notably it will feature some guest appearances from Intronaut guitarist Sacha Dunable, who previously toured as a member of Sharp‘s backing band in Cloudkicker. You can read what he had to say about that and some upcoming vinyl reissues below:

“…Just wanted to say hi and thanks for everything over the years. I have two things that I’m excited about right now.

“First, I’m going to reissue Beacons, Let Yourself Be Huge, Fade, and Subsume as a 4xLP set. New artwork, audio has been reworked, Subsume has been remastered. 500 copies, hand-numbered, signed. The works. I’d like to do more copies but they’re ridiculously expensive to produce so this will probably be it.

Second, I finished a new album called Solitude. It’s 49 minutes long and will be a 2xLP. I had 94 straight days at home not working, and this is how I spent it. 8 hours a day, every day. 2 tracks feature Sacha Dunable from Intronaut doing cool stuff like slide guitar and mellotron and using all sorts of strange pedals.

The digital version has been mastered by my old friend Erol Ulug from the disgustingly heavy band Teeth. The vinyl is being mastered by Dan Wilburn who mastered the latest Intronaut record.

I don’t know when these things are going to be released but I’m hoping I can coincide one or both of them with the 10th anniversary of Beacons on 9/16/20.

Also I am going to make new t shirts soon.

Thanks again, I hope everyone is doing ok.
