Burntfield have commenced recording their sophomore album, a follow-up to 2018’s Hereafter, released on Progressive Gears Records. The core trio of Juho Myllylä, Maarten Vos and Steven Favier flew to Helsinki, Finland to enter Sonic Pump Studios where bass and drums were recorded. Engineered again by Eero Kaukomies of Content Union Studios, the new album sees a continuation of a long-term partnership (since the beginning of Burntfield in 2013). We were also joined by long-time session keyboardist for Burntfield and sound wizard Arttu Vauhkonen – we’re grateful to once again have his input on the new album.
We regret to announce that Valtteri Seppänen has taken the decision to step out from Burntfield with immediate effect. This means that in these unfortunate circumstances we are forced to cancel our performance at ProgFrog Holland on 22 September. We feel truly sorry for having to pull out, however, IT & Quiet Wish from the Progressive Gears artist roster will still deliver a fantastic double-bill concert worth seeing.
Burntfield will continue the work in progress on our second album, with pre-production well underway and recordings to commence later in the year, aiming for a 2020 release and live action with a new line-up.
We hope you’re all having a great summer filled with music – keep in touch and see you back soon!
Time flies – it’s been ~2,5 years since we last played live in our original home country.
It’s about time we’re able to announce two upcoming live dates in Tampere and Helsinki this February! For these shows we’re joining forces with our Progressive Gears Records label mates Naryan and their distinctive blend of atmospheric melancholic rock, as well as Keoma (in Helsinki). We really do hope to see many of our Finnish friends out there in February.
