Damian Wilson has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his first solo album in ten years. Over the years, Damian has been touring and recording with bands such as Threshold, Headspace and Star One, but it has been more than 10 years since his last solo album "Let's Start A Commune".
Damian had this to say about the album:
"I've never stopped writing songs so I have accumulated a lot since my last solo album. In June we have started recording in Dublinwith some amazing musicians from all over Europe. We’re happy to say that we've come a long way these last couple of months and the album is taking shape. I believe we're creating something worthy of your expectations. The songs reflect on how our personal relationships are relevant to the bigger picture, even on a world level."
Funds raised will go into further recordings and completion of the album and a full band European tour. The album is scheduled to be released in April 2016.
Damian also announced an acoustic album with fellow Headspace band mate Adam Wakeman. This album will be released 3 months earlier in January.
2 shows in the UK have been announced around the release of the album:
January 8: Trading Boundaries - SheffieldGreen UK
January 9: The Stables - MiltonKeynes UK
Campaign backers will receive backers-only limited editions of both albums, different from the standard versions.
Damian is currently on a European tour with Maiden uniteD and will play some select solo shows in the Netherlands.
A European tour with Threshold has been announced for January.
