We are STOKED to announce that Burntfield have joined the artist roster of Red Rock Management, a Hannover/Germany based artist booking, management and promotion agency! Red Rock will as of now represent us internationally with management and bookings. www.redrock-management.de/burntfield
At the same time it’s time to announce two changes in the line-up: Tero Heinonen and Aarne Toivonen quit Burntfield. We’d like to thank both of them for everything they’ve given for the group in the past and being part of the Burntfield story!
The story will, however, continue with two new members from The Netherlands: we’d like to introduce Maarten Vos, bass and Sebastiaan Cornelissen, drums. As a bassist Maarten has done a lot of session work and played with bands and artists like Willow Mae, Ole Man Trouble and Chet Vamp. Sebastiaan is a top-notch professional, who has played with the likes of Tristan and On Impulse, has a long experience working as an ‘on demand’ live and session artist, producing numerous of albums and working with jazz/fusion gems such as Randy Brecker, Gary Willis and Gary Husband. The two new faces are sure to bring a great deal of stunning musicianship to the group.
The Metal Resource just published an exclusive interview with Juho and Valtteri! Read everything about what’s up with Burntfield, our thoughts on music and life, our future plans and beyond… Well worth a read over the holidays!
My Grief – the new single & music video from Burntfield is out NOW. The single is available for streaming and download on all major streaming and download services, including Spotify, iTunes and Google Play.
Big thanks to everyone involved for making this possible!
The Finnish Melodic Rock band Burntfield are set to release a new single called My Grief on 28 October 2016.
Lyrically, as the title suggests, My Grief deals with feelings of sadness, sorrow and longing for that someone unreachable. The music is emotionally charged with wistful harmonies and harrowing vocals, driven by acoustic guitar, piano and deepened with a string quintet. Burntfield’s signature sound is taken to a whole new level, combining the atmospheric, progressive, melodic and catchy elements in one.
My Grief was recorded and mixed at Sonic Pump Studios, Helsinki with Eero Kaukomies during summer 2016, and mastered afterwards by Svante Forsbäck at Chartmakers, Espoo. A familiar face in Burntfield as a session man, Arttu Vauhkonen (Arion), makes a special guest appearance on the piano, and string quintet ANSoS adds the natural touch of a full string ensemble.
The music video for My Grief was realized with Finfinitum Video Production. The atmospheric video reflects the story’s emotions with the addition of actress Noora Koivumies and circus/fire artist Jukka Juntti, who bring along a great deal of theatricality to the visual entity.
My Grief is available digitally worldwide for watching, streaming and download.
We’d like to do a little throwback to a few weeks ago at On the Rocks Helsinki, where we had a memorable time supporting The Joanna Connor Band! Check out this canvasmade up of photos and video clips from the show to get yourself in the mood, and to warm up for this Wednesday’s show at Lepakkomies, featuring a line-up of Burntfield, Mojo Waves, Astral Bazaar and special guest Pumpuli. This will be our last show of the glorious summer 2016 and, as it is, for quite a while now, so it is highly recommended to come!
