HIGH DIALS @ FOCUS WALES

The High Dials @ FOCUS Wales - May 17, 2019

The High Dials will be showcasing at FOCUS Wales 2019 on May 17 at Memorial Hall in Wrexham. Catch them shortly after headliners Boy Azooga, recent winners of the Welsh Music Prize.

Doors are at 7:00pm and you can get tickets HERE.

This is the 9th edition of the international conference and festival that welcomes about 10,000 music fans and industry types to Wales each May.

It’s the band’s first return across the pond since their 2014 tour of the UK and Ireland.

New music – out now!

The Foreverish EP landed on all platforms today – stream, download and share!

A limited number of CDs and signed cassettes are still available through Bandcamp.

The Band Is Back

After a two-year writing hiatus, the band is back!

A new line-up features familiar faces Simon Quevillon on bass and Max Hebert on drums, both of whom played with the High Dials in Mexico and Colombia. Max was drummer on the albums “Moon Country” and “Anthems For Doomed Youth”.

The new-look band takes the stage on Sept. 20 in Montreal – don’t miss this first glimpse of songs from their upcoming EP and album.

SPHAERA – a solo album

All is quiet on the High Dials front – band members pursue different projects but still meet up for beverages and comeback plans. A new album is promised. Stay zen and watch this space for an announcement, we hope soon.

Meanwhile, Trevor has quietly released a first solo record  – available on all digital platforms. Titled “Sphaera – Music From the Film Let There Be Light”, it features bits of the score to the aforementioned documentary but is also a concept record in its own right, “a kind of romantic space opera about the heavenly bodies – stars, planets and such, and the feelings of love and terror we feel beneath them.”

The album features moody balladry interspersed with mellotron-heavy orchestral suites, many of which feature in the Eye Steel Film documentary “Let There Be Light”.

Taking cues from romantic torch songs, John Barry, Hammer horror, old sci-fi and erotic scores in combination with the first-wave electronica of bands like Tangerine Dream and Pink Floyd – “Sphaera” is an immersive psychedelic meditation.

“Let There Be Light” is an Eye Steel Film documentary about attempts to recreate the sun on earth for fusion energy. It has featured in festivals worldwide since its spring 2017 release, including SXSW, Hot Docs and Docs Barcelona, winning the Artistic Vision Award at Big Sky Festival.

House of Cards + new video

For a third season successive season you can hear High Dials music playing while U.S. president Frank Underwood engages in dastardly deeds. Just-released season 4 of the Netflix series “House of Cards” features “Echoes and Empty Rooms” and golden oldie “Chinese Boxes” in the background. Listen in and spot the tunes!

The High Dials are proud to unveil a new video by frequent collaborator Ghost Mago this week – “Evil Twin” from “In the A.M. Wilds”. Based on projections from the band’s live shows, it captures the doppelgänger vibe very well. Enjoy!
