love songs - that's what Ceremony are famous for.
Well known for its outstanding mixture of aggressive, rock and shoe-gaze the band
keeps the spirit of the legendary band skywave going.
After very successful releases like Rocket Fire (2010) and Safranin Sounds (2012)
Ceremony now presents its new album called DISTANCE. Even more than ever before
Ceremony proofs why people all over the world are into the bands catchy songs.
You will be touched by the bands charming sound. Your heart will raise of the warm
atmosphere reminding of 60's girl groups. You will want to dance like you danced to the
80's pop sound. You will get lost in the bands distinctive song structures forgetting about
your favorite 90's shoe-gaze song.You will recognize yourself, your feelings and
experiences in Ceremony's lyrics. You will be desperate for more.
It's Ceremony! It's about love!
When diving into Ceremony’s treat, you’ll immediately feel home as it’s two typical tunes. Typical
as in Ceremony directly pick up their known shimmering blend of noise and melody and seduce
us with humming bass lines, fuzz-driven guitar riffs, crisp drum kicks, sweet’n’crunchy noises,
heartbreakingly melancholic atmospheres and vocal colors that in certain moments sound like
sung by a relative of Jim Reid (JAMC).
Take the fuzzed out sounds of the Jesus & Mary Chain, blend it with the pop sensibilities of 60′s
girl groups, add a dash of Joy Division and wrap it all up in the guise of a love song and then
you’re picking up on what Ceremony is putting down.
Ceremony is a melting pot of noise rock, psych, shoegaze and 60s pop! It’s raw, personal and explosive (all of the good things rock n’ roll should be)! It’s now the solo act of Fredericksburg’s John Fedowitz (who cut his teeth in the 90s band Skywave with Paul Baker and Oliver Ackermann of A Place To Bury Strangers). As Ceremony approaches a decade of music making, the new album ‘Distance‘ is about to be released via Moon Sounds Records. This week John kindly took some time out to answer questions about the album. So grab a cup and enjoy the tunes…
