So we signed with these nice people called KARISMA RECORDS for the release of Blackbox outside of Norway. Finally you people should be able to get the record in stores out there in the big world. Happy days ahead!

We have ventured deep into the rabbit hole for the past few months, immersing ourselves in some serious bouts of alchemy with mr. Yngve Leidulv Sætre, and as we just now emerge into the daylight, we can proudly say that.. It's done! Blackbox is hitting the printing press today, and it's just a few short months until you can wrap your fingers around your very own copy. We can't wait to show you all the new music we've pulled from the ether. Stay tuned!

NB: The box in the picture is just crackers. Not the actual album. They're pretty tasty though.

So we've been strolling merrily down the Kickstarter trail for the past 30-odd days, and we're now approaching the final stretch, with only 2 days remaining. It's gone far beyond what we could reasonably expect. A lot of you have backed us already, actually you smashed our initial funding target within the first 2 days, and as this is being written, we're sitting at a very pretty 184% funding.

So that's why we haven't felt the need to send constant reminders about this thing, it seems a lot of you people have already dialled the number. But, in case you are interested in getting the album early, and haven't yet made a pledge in the Kickstarter, we are sending a little heads-up now, as the campaign is about to expire.

The new album will be released on September 29th. Making a pledge now will ensure that you can download it September 1st, and if you buy a physical copy, it will arrive at you door before the official release date. So basically, supporting our Kickstarter is the method that will get you our new album the fastest. And if you have already chipped in, simply sharing the campaign would also be of great help.

No matter what, we want to take this opportunity to salute you, and to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the support you have already shown us. It is touching to know that so many people around the world have our backs. We will repay your faith with what we feel is our best work so far.

Much love and gratitude

Entering our final mixing sessions at Bergen Kjøtt with Señor Ÿ Sætre, things are definitely shaping up. Politely reminding you that we still have a week remaining on our Kickstarter campaign - the only chance to get the new album before the release date! Keep the faith & have yourself a stellar weekend!

Hello friends. You have taken us to 165% funding without us even nagging. It's kind of bonkers. But who will be the one to push us over the 100K limit? We're soo close. A personal thank you letter will be shipped to the person who officially pushes us into six figures.

New single: Madeleine Crumbles

Today we bring you the most exalted of news: The first single from our fourth studio album has finally been released. Madeleine Crumbles is a five minute exploration of symphonic pop melancholia, touching some musical realms we haven’t really ventured into before. That’s where we’re always most comfortable – somewhere we’ve haven’t been before. You can find the song on Spotify or any kind of service you may find preferrable. The song features Linn Frøkedal (The Megaphonic Thrift) on guest vocals, plus a host of other guest musicians, and has been mixed by Yngve Sætre. Lyrics here.


Gig alert: Trondheim, Bergen, Oslo!

We’ll be heading back on the road for a few shows, to showcase the new ensemble and glimpses of our new material. Hope you’ll find your way to one of them.


Gig alert: Hulen, Bergen – April 30th!

You asked for it, you got it. We’re proud to announce the first gig with our new line-up.

As well as being the maiden journey for four new faces, you can get a first taste of the much-awaited follow-up to Twilight Cinema. We’re extremely excited to get back on stage again.

Lyrics, lyrics, lyrics!

Some of you may have noticed that this website has gotten a bit of a new look lately.

It is very much a work in progress, and the makeover is nowhere near complete. But do note that we’ve finally gotten around to publishing all the official Major Parkinson lyrics.

A lot of you have been asking us about releasing these things, and while we’ve been amused by all the wrong lyrics that have been put out on the internet over the years, we kind of figured we had to set the record straight. We know it’s kind of hard to decipher what we’re saying at times.

So, go on, enjoy yourself, now there’s no excuse for singing the wrong lyrics.
