DEAD SIRIUS 3000 - "GET SIRIUS" ALBUM FINISHED!
Some of you may know that when I'm not playing solo, I'm the frontman singer / guitarist in an epic rock&roll band called Dead Sirius 3000. It all happened by accident some months back. We were just 3 friends who took a week off to take it easy in the middle of nowhere just to enjoy the outdoors, beer, sauna and a have fun with some instruments.
After a week we had wrote over ten songs and things just clicked. We had become a band. Now those songs are recorded and the debut album "GET SIRIUS" is coming out in Finland 27.5. and in Germany mid-July. Stay tuned! ;)
This is our debut single "The Hole"

NEW SOLO ALBUM IN THE WORKS
OK, so yea I'm finally making a new solo album :)
There's a few special things to it tho: it will only be available in Japan and they're cover songs. But I'll make videos too so I'm sure everybody will be able to enjoy some tracks worldwide.
I do have enough original material for a full album but due to various legal issues between Europe / Japan, King Records and I decided to make a totally special release for their territory. Everything's just so much easier that way, believe me. If I'd record original stuff for Japan, it would most likely stay in Japan too. So that's why I'll do only covers. The album will be released fall 2013.
Whenever I have the time, I'll start recording my new original songs also. That'll be late 2013 then.
On the other hand, I hope I have the time to do it all. There's gonna be weeks of touring, Dead Sirius 3000 album release with plenty of action coming up in Germany (more about that later) and The Northern Governors are going to the studio soon.
I hope you'll like the new stuff, the cover songs will definitely differ from the originals, some will be even mutilated.. in a positive way. Looking forward to make the videos for you all.
