We are finally delighted to be able to tell you that our full debut album ‘Rising‘ is finished and ready to be released via our own label Akashic Records on May 5th!
The album is being released as both a Vinyl LP edition (with download code) and CD edition, and is available to pre-order right now directly from us on our website!
As a thank you for supporting us by buying directly, we will be happy to sign your copy with a message of your choice (just let us know on our checkout page in the customer notes section what message or dedication you would like).
You will also find it in all good record shops as of May 5th, and online retailers such as Amazon etc.
For those of you who prefer digital downloads and streaming, we will let you know as soon as it becomes available to pre-order / listen via those stores. And if you’re on Spotify – don’t forget to give us a follow here to be notified when our new tracks go live! ?
In the meantime, we have updated our own store with some sales items, including limited edition vinyls of the mini LP and signed prints and t-shirts. Take a look here.
Finally, we would like to say a big thank you to all of you who have stuck with us, supported us from the start with our various Pledge campaigns, and have patiently waited for the full length debut to come to fruition!
Kenwyn would like to say the following:
“I’ve put so much of what I am into this album and these songs; it’s almost too much to express in words. This was a record I was always going to make – an album that truly expressed my vision and choices musically. It has been a labour of love for us all. It’s been the biggest challenge but with the greatest creative reward. Thank you to all of you who have supported us from the beginning via Pledge, and have made it possible for us to realise the dream!”
“Being a part of Goldray is not only magical musically, but also with the strong connection I have with my bandmates. The freedom of style and the influences drawn from eras of life changing artists and movements that trickle through Goldray’s music are needed in the world again right now. Right music rising at the right time. We hope you enjoy it!”
And as for Leah:
“Wow, making this album has been quite a magical mystery journey that’s for sure! For me this album is a reflection of my life, thoughts and dreams. Yes it’s a concept album, I think you guys will work out what that is (the clue is in the album title!).
We’re really exited to finally let this baby fly!”
So, a huge thanks for all your continued support! We’ll be back soon with some news on tour dates and our album launch show at London’s Borderline venue on May 10th (save the date guys!)
Love, Goldray xxx
