Withem – 2013 in Review
Withem’s 2013 has been, at the same time, the culmination of years of work and the very beginning of something beautiful.
Finishing the debut album The Point of You after countless hours, days, months in the studio, followed by finding Laser’s Edge / Sensory Records as the right partner to release it, kick started the year in the best way.
On October 9th The Point of You was released worldwide and we are still being overwhelmed with the reactions. There has been loads of great reviews from all over the world, a ton of constructive criticism and the overall feeling in the band is that we are now sure that when you create music with so much passion and dedication, that’s bound to be sensed by the fans.
We have been promoting the album with a myriad of shows across Norway, sharing stages on several occasions with the mighty Pagan’s Mind and Circus Maximus. We can’t stress enough how honored we are for having such bands and musicians as our friends.
Playing ProgPower Oslo and being on the roster for next year’s massive ProgPower USA speak volumes about the acceptance that we have been getting from the progressive community.
The highlight of the year has been, hands down, the fan’s response and feedback. Either after our shows, or through social media, we have been getting such warm compliments and reactions that makes it hard for us to stop smiling and wanting to give it all back in return through our music.
For 2014 we have planned to play live as much as possible, so stay tuned for upcoming show announcements. Also we can’t wait to start putting together all the musical ideas that we have for the next album…
Thank you all for an amazing year, and remember support the band, don’t miss the chance to attend our shows when we (sooner or later) come your way and spread the word!
