The door opens 17:00, but our special guests, fellow Latvian rockers known by the name of SaspuriS will bring on the noise at 21:00. We will be on at around 22:30. Expect a live rendition of the entire 'Gyrosophy' album and then a few older numbers that our fans love so much.

Please note there is no admission fees, so come along and get yerself a drink. Or five.

See you soon!

Yes, it is official: our new album is to be released on the web on 12 December 2015! Streams/downloads will initially be available from Bandcamp and other major online music stores such as iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc. The release of the CD version is slated for Spring 2016.

The album clocks in at 47 minutes. It contains 8 tracks, four songs and four instrumentals, and features gorgeous cover art by Edvards Percevs, drummer in Latvian black-metal band Eschatos.

 

Gearing up for the next show

by Fat 7. December 2015 01:18

Yeah, right... Our next show will take place on Saturday, 12 December 2015, and we will be sharing the stage with Flying Fish, which means our guitarist Quizz who plays in both bands will have a far busier night than the rest of us.

 

Two things have to be said about the upcoming gig. First: it's dedicated to a web serial project titled "Traces of Nowhere", produced, written and direced by Flying Fish's own Dmitry Rumyantsev; watch the first episode, featuring Holy Lamb's Aigars and Ansis as cops, here. Second: the wait for "Gyrosophy", the fourth Holy Lamb album, is officially over! As the web release date coincides with that of the show, we will actually "publish" the album on the internet during the event! A detailed news bit about "Gyrosophy" is to follow shortly, so stay tuned and come along to "A Nice Place" next Saturday if you're in Rīga!

HL to perform at the RockUp festival Saturday, 8 August

by Fat 2. July 2015 22:20

On 8 August 2015, Holy Lamb will make their first Latvian festival appearance in years! It is called RockUp and there's a dedicated website in Latvian with details on all the performers, all of them wonderful Latvian rock/blues bands and artists; the festival also has its own Facebook page.

 

In light of the upcoming festival, which will take place at a nice countryside camping site some 40 kilometres away from Rīga, this Sunday (5 July) at midnight HL keyboardist Juris and bassist/vocalist Aigars will be having a friendly chat with the organizer of the event who also happens to be the host of a Radio Naba programme titled Partitūra. To complement the chat, a couple of tracks from the band's new album, Gyrosophy, will be premiered, so feel free to tune in if interested. 

 

Best,
HL


Drum and Bass Tracks Done

by Fat 26. August 2012 21:13

With basic drum tracks and bass parts recorded in late August and at different times between that and early October, respectively, 'Gyrosophy' is starting to take shape.

 

Meanwhile, keyboard parts are coming in: Advox has done a tremendous job recording at home during weekends, and the sounds we have heard so far are exactly what the music requires. Lots of Hammond, exquisite soloing, lush synth strings and almost anything else one might ask for. Likewise, Quizz has come up with a few home demos of his guitar parts while getting ready for studio work. Depending on studio availability, his sessions are likely to be scattered across the rest of October and the first half of November.

 

Pics from the drum recording session (with a little bass guitar) can be viewed here.

Recording Sessions for New HL Album Started

by Fat 21. August 2012 08:10

Following a lengthy period of silence, Holy Lamb is finally ready to bring you some exciting news. The 20th of August 2012 marked the beginning of the recording sessions for what will result in "Gyrosophy", Holy Lamb's fourth album, their first in just over 10 years. "Like the album title suggests, it feels we're now at the end of a full cycle of spiralling up and down throughout the last decade. Although some of the moves were quite unpleasant and rather discouraging, somehow we managed to retain the balance in what has been a period of steady development for each one of us and the band as a whole. We would have experienced none of that, had we put out a mediocre album every other year, so there's a certain element of wisdom behind our absence too," comments Aigars Červinskis, the band's founder, bassist and vocalist.

 

With sound engineer Tālis Timorts at the knobs, the band will spend the next few days laying down the drum tracks for the entire album; the recording sessions for vocals, guitar, bass and keyboard parts are scheduled across September and, possibly, reaching into the first half of October. The finished product is likely to consist of eight titles, a couple of which have been stapling the Holy Lamb live set for a few years now, such as "Trouble Vision" and "This Amazing Race". Since most of the new album is purely instrumental, the players are given a great opportunity to bring their skills to the fore. Meanwhile, the band is talking to certain guest players to see if they would be interested in spicing up the sound. Besides the music, the album cover artwork is the next thing to be sorted out. "If we can get the artwork done according to our original idea, you'll probably want a big poster of that image on your wall," says Aigars.

 

Progress updates from the studio will be published online here at HL Universe, but you can also LIKE the band's Facebook page to be among the first to get the news.
