Overdrive and distortion

Ok, Tuomo just bought an Overdrive pedal and it means that there will be both overdriven/distorted bass sound as well as the clean one. It means a big change for overall sound of Cause For Effect, both forthcoming and old songs. This is the biggest change since the guitar dropped out.

This decision is quite big since Tuomo has played 25 years with clean sound and never used any kind of pedals. The change is not only for the sound, Tuomo has to learn to use the pedal as well. :)

14 of 15 new songs are ready. New EP, maybe within this year. More information later.

20 years

on this day 20 years ago, 1992. Ari and Tuomo formed a band later known as Cause For Effect. Back in the days there were different name, more players and a whole different style, but the band started anyway. Actually the real birth of current CFE happened in august 1999 when we decided to continue as a duo but the foundations were set in summer 1992. If it's not tl;dr, read more here:

About the new EP

Ok, we gave unofficial information here and there in the internet that our new EP would be out in march 2012. But as you can see, it didn't happen.

I don't want to explain too much why our deadline didn't hold, but the usual that we had busy time somewhere else in our lives than in music. We have already 13 new songs ready and we thought we'll compose two more. Then we'll have a decent amount of minutes and we can rehearse songs to perfect condition to record and release them.

About the release day? I have no idea. Maybe we'll go to the studio in the summer, but I guess we'll rehearse summer and record new songs in autumn. September or october. Feels ok at the moment.
