Falconer lägger ned – glöden har falnat

Häpp.

Falconer, som i början av maj överraskade med att avslöja ett nytt album, överraskar igen. Denna gång åt det mindre roliga hållet – bandet lägger ned. From a Dying Ember blir Falconers nionde och sista album. Snacka om passande titel för ett band som ger ut sin svanesång.

Bandet, och framförallt basisten Stefan Weinerhall, förklarar beslutet så här på sin facebooksida:

I (Stefan) felt before this album that although I love Falconer’s music I knew just too well how to make it and what my own expectations and boundaries are when it comes to writing songs for Falconer. It felt maybe a bit too safe and familiar.

We decided to make this final album as good as we possibly could and really concentrate on having all Falconer elements present and really make sure that each element got full devotion.
For example, the ballad should be as ”ballady” as ever, and the folk song should sound as folky as possible etc.
The sole decision to make this the final album actually sparked a new found enthusiasm and engagement for me as a song writer, it was like the final sprint for a long distance runner.

The last thing we wanted was to release a ”so-so” final album, but really make it good enough so we could end the band with our heads held high, thus we let it take it’s time.
If we succeeded we’ll leave to the fans to decide, but we as a band feel really proud of this achievement and hope that most fans will consider this to be a respectable “Adieu”.
