Hydria releases their third full length album, “Acústico - The Acoustic Sessions”. The album is being released on April 9th 2011 and features re-arranged slower versions of songs like “The Nymph”, “Finally”, and “The Place Where We Belong” from their two previous albums, Mirror of Tears, and the most recently released, Poison Paradise. Please note the album will only be available as a DIGITAL DOWNLOAD. No hard copies will be printed or sold.
Hydria is saddened by the events that have occurred on March 2011 in Japan, especially after hearing first hand stories of the devastation from their Japanese label and friends and wanted to find a way to help. Hydria concluded that for fans who choose that they like the digital album and decide to purchase it, all of the proceeds made from the purchased albums between now and August 31st 2011 will be donated directly to the International Red Cross to help aid with the crisis in Japan, or any other location that is in need.
Because the album is available only as a digital download, this saves cost for everyone, helps make it possible to release, and allows more of the incoming money from sales to go to charity.
Please note, proceeds from all purchases through CDbaby.com, iTunes, and Amazon.com will be donated directly to the International Red Cross.
The band released a statement encouraging people to donate to the Red Cross saying, "Even if you are not a fan of our music, we encourage you to donate directly to the International Red Cross at http://www.icrc.org/ to help in this time of need."
