Alternative 4 sign to Prophecy Productions

I'm pleased to announce that a long term deal has been signed between Alternative 4 and Prophecy Productions. Teaming up again, ten years since they put the first Antimatter albums out into the cosmos. It's good to be back onboard a label who have always had respect for my work, regardless of how obscure or 'uncommercial' it often turns out. In todays musical climate it is difficult to find a decent label who are genuinely focused more on the artistic/innovative side than anything else. And for me that is essential as I've no plans to start playing and writing fashionable music as a career move, not unless I do it accidentally that is.
I'm currently working on the second Alternative 4 album 'The Obscurants' which is about those who deliberately withhold truth, knowledge, and enlightenment from others. It's a slight continuation of the theme from The Brink, which also dealt with the abuse of power. The line up remains the same as The Brink, with Mark Kelson and Mauro Frison in the fold. We plan to record The Obscurants later this year - 2012.

Finally, a big thank you to Avantgarde Music for getting the Alternative 4 project off the ground last year.

Onwards and upwards!
