Want To Record With Eluveitie?

Want to appear on our next record? Here’s your chance: we need 10 men willing to record a short vocal part at the  New Sound Studio in CH-Päffikon, on Saturday, 12. April, at 15.00. You don’t need to have any singing experience, all that is required is that you’re able to travel to Pfäffikon independently and are willing to have a good time! To enter, post on Facebook or over on Twitter using the hashtag #RecordWithEluveitie or send us an email to band [at] eluveitie [dot] ch! We will randomly choose ten winners by the 7th of April at 24.00 CET.

Studio Update, First Guest Musician Announced

Right after taking home a Swiss Music Award earlier this month (the first metal band ever to do so!), we have entered the Swiss New Sound Studio again to begin work on the follow-up to 2012’s “Helvetios”, once again with legendary producer Tommy Vetterli. As always, working with Tommy 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 Newsound 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!

More news will follow soon! Stay up to date on facebook.com/eluveitie and twitter.com/eluveitie!

Drum Recordings Are Done!

This afternoon, Merlin Sutter and Tommy Vetterli completed the drum recordings for our upcoming new album at New Sound Studio! We will share more details about the album in due time. Meanwhile, after two sessions and a total of 7 days, Merlin can say this:
“I am extremely happy with the results of yet another very rewarding drum tracking experience with Tommy. Again, we got the best possible result in both sound and performance! And one thing is certain: I’ll definitely have to get in shape before we bring these songs to the stage later this year!”

Swiss Music Awards 2014: We Did It – THANK YOU!

Now that we have recovered from last Friday’s events (although our minds are still blown), we would like to say a few words:

Winning a Swiss Music Award for “Best Live Act National” is certainly one of the highlights of our career, and an immense honour. However, it is not just our honour, but yours to share with us: this award goes out to all of you! The stage at the stadium in Zurich last night was as much yours as it was ours. It is also not simply a recognition of our most recent activities, but the result of many years of hard work and amazing times. For those of you who missed it, you can share the moment again with us right here on Joiz TV: http://www.joiz.ch/show/swissmusicawards/joiz-pre-show-swiss-music-awards#!video=sma-6-tom-odell-kuert-den-best-live-act-national

We want and have to thank each and every one of the amazing people who have worked with us and supported us in any way during the last 12 years; in particular:

- Oliver Rosa, Association Press Play, and everyone at the Swiss Music Awards!

- Our amazing team behind the scenes: our dear manager Oliver Macchi at ILT Music, everyone at Nuclear Blast Records, Irina Sterchi and everyone at Warner Music, Mike, Günther, Stefan and everyone at Rock The Nation, Nick Storch and his team at ICM.

- Our hard-working live crew, both current and past – without you, we would certainly not have made it to “Best Live Act” anywhere: Kate, Johanna, Melanie, Marci, Chris K., Chris N., Chris M., Jan, Martin, Kal, David, Krisz, Shymon, Stijn, Philippe, Roli, Gian and all the other people that make or made the show go on. You know who you are!

- The talented professionals and creatives who work with us to record and produce our albums: Above all Tommy Vetterli at New Sound Studio, but of course also Marco Jencarelli and everyone at Soundfarm, Dan Suter at Echochamber, and everyone else who has worked on past albums with us.

- Our many other ‘partners in crime’, current and past: Manuel Vargas Lepiz, Samantha Benedetti, Booya Music, Travis and his team at IndieMerch, Tanja Stieger, and Fear Dark Records. And, if we ever had the pleasure of working with you, YOU – please forgive us for our inability to mention every name from the past decade, and accept this symbolic space as your own:____________.

- All the concert promoters who have worked with us in the past and who have supported us so generously. In particular: Phibe Cornu, Gurtenfestival & Bierhübeli, Andy Locher, Heitere & Val Lumnezia, the whole Greenfield team, Chrigu Stuber and Kofmehl, Norbert & everyone at Z7, Laurence & Les Docks, everybody at Anyacts, Stefan Matthey and his team at Starclick.

- Everyone who supported us during the voting. In particular: Joiz TV, Stijn, Karydwen, David, Korpiklaani, Tyr, and of course the mighty Coroner!

- And last, but not least all of our former band members who have toured the world with us: Meri Tadic, Simeon Koch, Sevan & Rafi Kirder, and everyone from the very early days – this award goes out to all of you, too!

But most of all we want and have to thank all of our amazing fans all over the globe, who stood with us, supported us and came to our shows, our die-hard fans, our incredible fan clubs (in particular Eluveitie Brasil, Poland, and France), all the members of our official forum and everybody who voted for Eluveitie, joining forces with us to show the whole music world how strong metal really is! This award is your award! You all rock!

Even more motivated we now return to Tommy Vetterli’s New Sound Studio, where recordings for our new album have started last week already. #Eluveitie2014 is going to be a big one!

TODAY: Last Chance To Help Us Win A Swiss Music Award!

We need your support! Eluveitie has been nominated for a Swiss Music Award in the category “Best Live Act National” – as the only metal band among the usual pop artists. The winner ist determined by an online audience vote, and there is only one more day left to give us yours!
Now, metal is not really about award shows, and such events are certainly not the reason why we do what we do. However, this is the very first time ever that a metal band gets the chance to win an award like this in our country, so this is a huge step for us, our fellow musicians and friends in other bands, and most of all our fantastic and ever-growing metal scene.
So, follow the link below and click VOTE, before the voting ends tomorrow (Sunday) night – let’s do this one together!

To celebrate this occasion we will present a brand new song for the very first time! On top of that we’ve dug out some Eluveitie classics we haven’t played live in years. Bottom line: Don’t miss this!
