Lycia returns with their first album since 2003 - brand new interviewPosted on 19/08/13
On December 5th, 2012 Lycia announced they were to release a new album. The 11-track album "Quiet Moments" will be released on the North Texas based label Handmade Birds Records as a limited run CD and on Lycium Music as digital download, both on August 20th. The new album will be their first new material since 2003's "Empty Space" was released; that is if you don't count the 2010 release of the digital-only release "Fifth Sun".
For the occasion Projekt Records (the label that released previous Lycia material) made an interview with the band which you can read right here.
Mike VanPortfleet says about Quiet Moments: "Thematically, 'Quiet Moments' is the most important release I've ever done. I remember reading in an interview years ago with Pete Townshend of The Who, and I'm just paraphrasing this based off my fuzzy memories. I believe the question was about his solo album in the '70s, in which he stated that 'Quadrophenia' was the closest thing he did to a solo release, based on how personal it was. That's how I feel about 'Quiet Moments'. This is a very personal release for me. It's the closest thing I'll ever have to an autobiography. There are a number of stories regarding the evolution and beginnings of 'Quiet Moments'. It first started to take form right around the same time that I was working on 'Fifth Sun' and the material that would eventually become part of 'Quiet Moments', it was a musical restart of sorts."
