"The Odyssey" is the third full length album from Kallidad. As well as the brand new music, this limited edition of 200 includes a bound hard cover book full of professional photographs, beautiful art and the band members telling the story of the album in their own words, plus interviews with Kallidad's artists, graphic designers, recording engineers and people close to the band.
Hand bound, this 44 page hardcover book is proudly manufactured in Australia. No expense has been spared, all the highest quality materials have been used. The manufacturer offered Asian factories as a discount option but Kallidad is proud to have this release Made in Australia, and completely carbon neutral, as the supplier plants trees to offset emissions. We are trying each day to become more eco friendly, and part of a forward thinking, conscious world.
The album contains 46 minutes of new Kallidad music across twelve tracks. The CD is located inside the back of the book.
"Big Bill's Blues"
"The Naming Ceremony"
"The Strasbourg March"
"The Odyssey" has been illustrated by Dora Wednesday, who has been referred to as "the fourth member of Kallidad." The book contains full page high quality artworks, as well as illustrations.
Folklore Photography's Michelle Troop is Kallidad's preferred photographer. She has photographed Kallidad many times, and her best work is included in this book, including taking the band into some stunning Australian environments. She also dishes the dirt on what it's like to spend time with the amigos early in the morning!
Each member of Kallidad has written at length about the music, the songs, the album, and the band's experience. Artist Dora Wednesday and Photographer Michelle Troop also offer their thoughts and experiences working with the band- warts and all!
RELEASE AND MAIL OUT
The album release date is May 8, 2017 and orders will be shipped then, just as Kallidad sets sail to Europe for a five month Odyssey of their own!
We really tried to do something different with this release- we love getting behind the scenes of our favourite music, so we tried to bring our listeners behind the scenes of Kallidad! Hope you enjoy the new tunes!
