NEWS – good and bad ones 😊☹️

So the bad news first…There won’t be another Frequency Drift album or live performance, at least not in the foreseeable future. After 8 albums in little more than a decade we feel we have said everything we wanted to say as FD. We’re very proud of everything we have released, and we’d rather end this with a strong and heartfelt album than keep going just for the sake of it.

Thank you so much for your amazing support over the years! ❤️

Now for the good news: We hope you will continue to follow us because we haven’t stopped making music! In fact all FD core members are working on new musical adventures, both solo and collaborative ones. We’ll be sharing news about our projects here and on our social media, and we will also post about our back catalogue from time to time, so please stay tuned!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone, and all the best for 2018! Next year will see the release of our new album!

Originally released in 2015 by Mellowjet Records, Andreas’ first solo album is an evocative suite of instrumental pieces with cutting edge synth sounds. It is now available as hi-res 24 bit download on the Frequency Drift bandcamp site, and all revenues will be used for the new Frequency Drift album! Making an album requires a lot of time, effort and money, and the costs for recording, mixing and making videos have always been covered by the band – so if you wish to support us, buying from our bandcamp is a great way to do so! 🙂
The new version of “Pieces” also includes a brand new bonus track.

Thank you so much for your support!

Here are some pictures from the recording sessions of our 7th studio album! The sessions have been intense and a lot of fun, too – especially working with our new singer Irini Alexia who is contributing many fresh ideas.
We are really excited about the new material! It has once again taken us into a new direction regarding songwriting and production while having all the FD ingredients – and the strongest vocal performance in our career! There is no release date yet, but we’ll keep you posted.

Due to frequent requests, we have decided to re-release our out of print album “Ghosts…” for its 5th anniversary.

Completely remixed and remastered, it also contains a bonus track: A new recording of Mermaid based on the live version of the song and performed by our current line-up. Mermaid 2016 features the beautiful vocals of new singer Nadja Jaye as well as a harp solo that will challenge your perceptions of what a harp sounds like 🙂

“Ghosts…” will be available at our merch corner at Night of the Prog festival next Saturday, and in our webshop and on our bandcamp page from Monday, 18th July. To pre-order, please go to our webshop:

GOOD NEWS for everyone who downloaded the 2015 Ghosts remastered version from our bandcamp page: We will deduct the original price from your Ghosts 2016 order (both physical CDs and downloads) if you buy the new version from our webshop! More details soon…
