Complete artwork and final tracklist of Snowy Red's Tribute '_ever Alive' unveiled
Weyrd Records, the Belgian label of Weyrd Son, aka Michael Thiel (the son of Snowy Red Micky Mike), has unveiled the complete artwork of the much awaited Snowy Red tribute double album, "_ever Alive", which is due to be released in May. This wonderful tribute comes in an arty and classy deep black gatefold. The amazing cover photography is by Betsy Vanlangen, from New Jersey.
On this double album, released in vinyl format and in limited edition, Michael Thiel has selected a number of small alternative bands from all around the world, to show that the spirit of new-wave music is still very much "_ever alive"! The bands joined their forces to this project to form one of the most spectacular and adventurous lineup in the genre to shed new light on Snowy Red's highly original and inspiring dark synthpearls. The result is a new interpretation of 16 classics with a powerful new sound where tradition and innovation are meeting at the top.
