First taste of new music!

On the Soundcloud page of Rock Company, you will find a lot of stuff, including this first taster of new material! It is a rough mix, but will give you  an idea of what we are working on:

Also we seem to have forgotten to let you know about another video of work in the studio. So here it is:

working on a new site

work in progress
We are working on a new platform for the site. Most of the content is transferred, but not all. Also links and text are not checked completely yet.

Please be patient while we are at work to get it all done!

Thanks for understanding.

user registration

Dear People,

 

since we are working on a new site, user registration is temporarily not possible.

Apologies for that, but once the new site is online, you will once again be able to register and join the FREE fan pages with loads of extra material!

Thanks for understanding.

 

live TV performance

We dug up a VHS with 3 songs played live and acoustic for a show on a local TV station. Time is probably 1999, so before Breathe Fire was released.

You can enjoy the audio on mixcloud:

Chinawhite: Live and Acoustic at Bombarie TV by Rock Company on Mixcloud

And a video (with announcements) on YouTube

Sample of new track, Drum + Bass

chinawhite - Sander

Well, as Sander and Peter had so much fun on the recording session today, we decided we let you in a bit on it and let you hear this snippet of that track. It is called Kiss Of Fire, and within the sample there is a piece we call the three handed riff (on the bass)… Cool or what?

 

 

Studio diary #1

Here you can see Hans at work pounding those drums. Alas something went wrong with the audio after uploading to YouTube, apologies for that!

Still enjoy these first snippets:

 

studio update

Hans recording with ChinawhiteOkay, another busy weekend in the studio with Hans in T Zandt. Got two songs done (drums that is) so we are taking off… Did I mention that 2 of our songs for the 4th Chinawhite release now have drums to build upon? I am considering uploading some video footage. Anyone interested?

Skype interview

Yesterday Peter was asked to participate in a songwriting class at Phant Knight school in Wisconsin USA. With the help of Skype he answered questions about songwriting, instruments, being in a band, modern music, etc. and even played away a little!

Judging from these tweets everybody had fun:

Peter you were a big guitar hero @PhantKnight school songwriting class today

kids from @PhantKnight school De Pere WI thought you were AWESOME!

Best advice: let your imagination be your limitation…

 

Big thanks to the Mighty Mister Billy for the invite.

First album out of print

chinawhite - a dragon´s birthIt is official now, our first EP A Dragon´s Birth is out of print! We did a rerun a couple of years back, but those have sold as well.

Still, there are a few options for you to still lay your hands on it:
* digital downloads. Many sites offer those, for instance at our label, Rock Company. But also Amazon, iTunes, CDBaby, etc.

* some record stores might have a copy somewhere. Just ask and try your luck

 

Preparation for next album

Heya,

in case you do not follow us on twitter yet (@chinawhite_nl) we have officially started working on our next album. All guide tracks are ready to go, and now we are waiting for our drummer Hans to reserve some time to start tracking the drums. We are aiming at 10-12 tracks. Some titles: Eat It Raw, Trading Places, It Means Nothing and Eyewitness. No promise on when we will be ready, but we will definitely post some video on YouTube during the recording sessions!

Forest Field - pioneers of the futureAnd if that is not enough, Peter has started an exciting new project with the ambition to create an aurally caressing combination of ambient / new age typed instrumentals, with progressive rock songs. It is called Forest Field and the first bits and even a complete rough track are available as of now. On this project Peter will not only play guitar, but keyboards and drums as well. And maybe even sing a little…
Sander will be stepping in on bass and more guests will be announced soon. You can also follow this : @forestfield_nl.

 

Cheers and see you soon!
