Huis new album: Abandoned

 

Canadian Progressive Rock band HUIS will release its third studio album, Abandoned, on May 1st, 2019.

 

Abandoned is a concept album talking of loss, abandonment and alienation. Those songs are about mourning, separation, but also about rebirth, resilience and hope.

 

Abandoned is the logical continuation of the band’s first two albums, Despite Guardian Angels (2014) and Neither in Heaven (2016). While retaining the Huis’ sound, this third album explores new musical approaches.

 

All members of the band were involved in the writing and creative process as well as the arrangements, which gives beautiful textures and colors to all the songs.

 

Abandoned is produced by Huis bassist and songwriter Michel Joncas, with mixing duties provided by guitarist and songwriter Michel St-Pere (also from the band MYSTERY) at Studio Illusion 4, and mastering handled by Richard Addison at Trillium Sound in St-Hippolyte, Quebec.

 

Abandoned features singer-songwriter Sylvain Descoteaux, drummer-songwriter William Régnier, guitarist-songwriter Michel St-Père, keyboardist-songwriter Johnny Maz and bassist-songwriter and band founder Michel Joncas.

 

HUIS is joined on Abandoned by guest musicians/singers: Jean Pageau (MYSTERY) on flute, Gabby Vessoni (FLEESH) on vocals, Serge Locat (ex-Harmonium) on piano and Éloïse Joncas on vocals.

 

Abandoned will be released worldwide on the Canadian record label Unicorn Digital on April the 15th 2019 on iTunes and all the best digital platform and May the 1st 2019 in all the best progressive rock record stores.  Presale will be available soon!

1996, the first full length MYSTERY Album was released, Theatre of the Mind was also the very first CD to be released on the Unicorn Records label.  Recorded on 16 tracks, just at the beginning of the internet, the album made its way slowly, mostly under the radar of the progressive rock community. Although the album contained all the elements and is considered the blue print for the music of MYSTERY, no one would predict that MYSTERY would become one of the most popular prog band to come out of Canada, nor did anyone could predict that Unicorn Records would release in the next 2 decades more than one hundred albums.

22 years later, Unicorn Digital is proud to re issue the first MYSTERY full length album.   In 2017 the 16 track audio tapes have been restored and transferred in digital. Completely re-mixed by Michel St-Pere in the best tradition of the MYSTERY sound while respecting the original performance of the band also featuring Gary Savoie, Benoit Dupuis, Michel Painchaud, original artwork created by late drummer Stephane Perreault and mastering by bassist Richard Addison. The new version of MYSTERY – Theatre of the Mind, will be released October 25th.  The album released in DIGIPAK will also be released on vinyl via our partner Polish label Oskar Records. 50 minutes, 10 songs plus one bonus track ( not available on the vinyl version )
