The pandemic has torn the cultural scene apart and spread this fear of whether the stage life will ever return back to normal, at least within the next 3 years. Every artist is affected by this and Walking Rumor is no different.
The doors got closed back in March 2020 and we are closing in on an entire year of absence.
This hasn't cut the band short, but it stopped the entire globe from spinning and left the band in a position to be extra creative.
A lot is going on in camp WR lately and we will do our best to keep up with all the news.
Let's break it down!!
Walking Rumor is in the production of their new album.
"A lot of different ideas are being tossed back and forth. The pandemic gives us a reason to not rush this album through the creative process, which is positive in our book. Because we have so much time now, to really go into the details, so we don't just end up creating a Symbiosis 2." - Anders Mørch.
Walking Rumor is in collaboration with Cryosphere
"We were approached by Cryosphere about creating a song together, which we are very honored about. I've always wanted to make a collaboration with another artist, so this is a milestone to be very excited about. Also, Walking Rumor on top of metalcore - it will be freaking awesome!" - Jacob Nielsen.
Kenio is in production of his solo album
"I've been in the game for a long time and I have always walked back and forth about telling my story in music. There is so much going on inside my head that I need to get out. I've struggled with mental health issues for a long time, been in traumatizing situations and of course, some can't be compared to others - but I feel it's time to let everyone know who I really am." - Kenio Gustavsson
We are definitely excited to see what the future holds for Walking Rumor and hear the projects they've worked on.
Symbiosis exceeded all expectations, taking the band's size into consideration back then and we couldn't be happier about it.
Hopefully, 2021 will be the year that musical culture can make a comeback, so we can get some amazing live shows and have the band meet their fans.
