Il 7 marzo gli svizzeri Eluveitie hanno vinto uno Swiss Music Award nella categoria “Best Live Act National”. La band si trova attualmente nei New Sound Studio per lavorare al successore di “Helvetios” con il produttore Tommy Vetterli (Coroner). La band ha dichiarato:
“As always, working with Tommy Vetterli is as efficient as it is creative: both drum and guitar tracking is already completed!
We have now begun work on the folk instruments and vocals at New Sound Studio, Lucerne’s Soundfarm Studio, and Chrigel’s home simultaneously.
We are extremely proud of the new material and can’t wait to present yet another big step in the evolution of Eluveitie later this year!
We were also able to secure a bunch of exciting guest performers, the first of which we have recorded last week: the wonderful Christine Lauterburg.
Not only is Christine one of the most original musicians in Switzerland, but she’s really a living legend! Like no other, she has practiced and perfected the age-old tradition of Swiss jodel over many decades. She has set many milestones in the history of Swiss folk music, and delivered valuable contributions to the research and preservation of a tradition that may reach back all the way to the early ages, and originated with the Helvetian celts.
We are proud to have Christine in our ranks. Her singing adds just that much more archaic authenticity to our sound, and contributes to the primeval rawness that will define our new album!”
