With the current events overwhelming us all, this week’s update is just a small one.
The third single from our upcoming collection of films and live music will be the old favourite of many – “Winter is Never”.
A song about growing up and the magic of childhood. Something we cannot forget. Especially now.
Love and peace to you all from Thomas and the boys.
With Gazpacho’s “Fireworker” 2020 album tour being cancelled, the band were stuck with the predicament of having a well-honed show rehearsed and the prospect of a long period off the road, a decision was made to perform a live stream which would reach fans far and wide and as the band had a perfect setting in their very own rehearsal space in beautiful Fredrikstad, Norway, Fireworking At St.Croix was born.
The resulting film is a very moody trip into the world of ‘The Fireworker’, captured on the 25th of October 2020. No fixes, no polishes, no light show and no nothing. Not even catering. Just the pure rendition of the music along with a surprise or two for those of you who have been with the band for a while.
For the physical release of Fireworking At St. Croix, the original stream has been completely re-edited and expanded with 30 minutes of additional material not included in the original broadcast, all remixed in glorious 5.1 surround sound. The Blu-Ray edition also contains 2.5 hours of bonus material including promo videos, interviews and a bonus concert filmed at the last night of the Soyuz Tour in 2019.
The band will be back on the road in April with Pure Reason Revolution (dates below), but these recordings offer a fine historical nugget from the bands already sterling catalogue.
Deluxe 4-disc hardback book edition – with the whole show on double CD, Blu-Ray and DVD as well as 48 page coffee table book including extensive liner notes about the Fireworker concept and the history of Gazpacho, including never before seen photos and alternative album artwork.
Blu Ray – which features the re-edited and expanded original stream with 30 minutes of additional material not included in the original broadcast, all remixed in glorious 5.1 surround sound. Plus 2.5 hours of bonus material including promo videos, interviews and a bonus concert filmed at the last night of the Soyuz Tour in 2019
