Black Rain Again is what we bump into every day: as thick clouds of poisonous rain, theories of a society that can’t wait to point out what we will never be are gathering over our heads, our projects are at most dreams and therefore we will see them fail, we do not know why, but it is so. Here, however, as the sun does not disappear but is hidden behind the clouds, so we can find our way through the difficulties and we can understand that there is a way to be whatever we want to, against all possible predictions. We know well that the struggle will be long because, as in the best plot, the wicked always get back on track...
Born in the early months of 2010, we started up immediately to writing songs characterized by a heavy rock mark. Powerful rhythm and constant research of the melody are the essential elements of our compositions, coupled to refined lyrics with an important social engagement. The central theme of our songs is everyone's chance to get out of the influence of a society that shapes thoughts and behaviours (usually conventional and defeatist). Only leaving these schemes and gaining this freedom of thought in everyday life, where external control is more difficult, everyone can become truly free. The stage is our natural environment, live show is our real strength. In these four years we have played a lot, receiving great appreciation. Entertainment, energy and public involvement are the key words to describe our concerts, seeing is believing. (Watch the video above).
Artists usually organize concerts to advertise their album, but we decided to record an album to advertise our concerts. Our dreams start from what we do best and gives us more satisfaction: the live show. Then it comes the idea to record an album, in order to pay tribute to the fans that support us from the beginning and to get our music heard by those who have not seen our show yet. We hope to play our music in many events, in Italy and beyond.
In order to fulfill this dream we need to introduce Black Rain Again to the world and here your part comes: supporting our campaign you can help us to realize different projects.
In these weeks we are recording the 9 tracks our album will be composed of. Works have already begun and are progressing very quickly. As you know, the costs to realize an excellent product are very high, and we need the resources to finance the mixing and mastering (at least 500 €, but it is actually more expensive). Below you can find a preview of "This Love", directly from the recording studio, before post-production, so you can have a taste of what we're preparing. (Listen to the track above).
In addition, we would like our music to reach fans all around the world, so we decided to distribute our record in digital version. Thanks to the online distributor Tunecore we will sell our music in the most important online stores such as iTunes, Shazam, Amazon and many others. In order to complete registration, paperwork and publication about 100 € are needed.
The initial idea was to focus on digital distribution only, but we could not stay indifferent to the charm of physical disc, with a cover, a booklet and CD prints. Therefore the last 500 € of this fundraising will be used to print 300 physical copies of the album which is accurate in every graphic detail. We want to give you a disc that you will be proud to have in your collection.
The album release will also be accompanied by the publication of the new official website www.blackrainagain.com and by some video extract of our concerts. All graphics, website and videos are the result of the skill of our graphic designer/drummer Lorenzo, take a minute to visit his own website www.lorenzocattaneodesign.it.
Some of the rewards for the raisers that will help us in this enterprise are anticipated downloads, physical copies of the album, as well as new t-shirts and sweatshirts Black Rain Again marked! Special packages are available for the most passionate raisers!
You know everything now. We are working on a project that will leave you breathless, turning it into reality depends on your support!
