L'excellent groupe To-Mera, qui depuis quelques temps ne donnait plus de nouvelles, annonce une pause, sans doute longue, dans leur projet.
La bonne nouvelle, c'est que de To-Mera, deux autres projets voient le jour, un projet Prog rock métal avec Tom, et un projet jazz-rock avec Tom et Julie.
About time we gave some signs of life.
We have much news to bear. As is often the case with 'news', some of it is good, and some of it less good.
The less good news, as some of you may have gathered, is that we have put To-Mera on ice for the time being. Essentially, now is the time for each of us to focus on various other things in our lives, be they other bands and projects or just life in general, and as anyone who is or has been in a band will know, things only work properly when everyone is on the same page. Until that day....
.... the GOOD news for To-Mera fans is that the core creative forces behind the band's music from the very beginning have been using this down-time to pour their energies into not just one but TWO brand new projects over the past 6 months or so.
Project no.1 is a collaborative venture between Tom and Julie, featuring symphonic film-score soundscapes and atmospheres blended with quirky jazz-rock grooves and serene vocals.
Project no. 2 was founded as a Tom 'solo project' of sorts, focussing more on the darker, more melancholic side of prog-rock and metal.
We are confident that To-Mera fans will find much to like in these forthcoming projects, and we feel it is the best way to keep the spirit of the band's music alive at this time. Much music has been written and recorded already, and will be released to the public ear in the coming months.
More information on each of these projects, including names, links to bandpages etc. will appear through this channel in the near future.
We would like to thank everyone for their support over the years. The journey must continue, and we hope you will join us!
