Garadh : New album ‘Need a change’ for entire streaming


10982241_913645138656060_3561882419734181421_nA few weeks after releasing its third full-length album and then unveiling an official music video for the single “Every single day” (selected for the best music video competition at the Toronto Independant Film Festival), Swiss alternative/indie rock Garadh just put ‘Need a change’ for full stream on SoundCloud.

Produced by Stephane Chapelle & Laurent Volanthen the album is still available for CD and Digital on the main legal platforms. Founded in 2004 by the Hay brotherhood (François, Edward and Matthieu), Garadh became a “real” band with the arrival of Yves Mabillard (guitar/bass) as fourth member. A few months later, they released a first recording as an 8-tracks demo (2005) with the aim to play a bunch of gigs. After some remarkable live appearances, Garadh signed with the Swiss label Blacksmithmusic in 2007 and unveiled its debut full-length album “Ascent” one year later.

In January 2012, the band released its second album, called “The burden of absence” and produced in 2011 by Nicolas Haerri from the Black Bear Agency (Promethee). Alain Douches (Converge, Dillinger Escape Plan, Mastodon…) handled the mastering at the West West Side Music Studio in New York City, USA.

For the third full-length record, Garadh made the choice to work with Stéphane Chapelle & Laurent Volanthen from the Kitchen Studio in Geneva (Disagony, The Black Widow’s Project) and then to launch a crowdfunding campaign to raise the funds for this new effort. Called “Need a change”, this new one is released on spring 2015.
