HFMC and Astrakhan at Rockland 22/10, Sala Sweden
The Progtime Festival (15/10) is postponed to sometime in 2023. We can assure you it's not an empty phrase when we say we're devastated by the news. For us it means the festival is cancelled as we have other plans for 2023. On top of that it forces us to cancel our show at De Pul in Uden, as it would be an economic disaster otherwise. It's hard but it's just to adjust to the fact there's a different reality for live music today than before the pandemic. Now it's of course the overall situation of the world that's putting a halt to most things music related (or at least for bands in our position). However we have plans for 2023 but more of that later and don't forget our show at Rockland in Sala (Sweden), on saturday the 22nd of October. Which most likely will be our last show in a while.
Here's the official statement from the organizer of the festival.
NEW ALBUM RELEASE
WE ARE THE TRUTH
On November 26th we released our 5th studio album
"We are the truth" on GlassVille Records.
Hasse Fröberg declares about the album:
"We Are The Truth is our most adventurous album to date. The music is positive, warm, organic, soulful and thoughtful. The lyrics are a cry for compassion, respect and love.
"We Are The Truth is both musically and lyrically very much about the world today".
The album are available as CD digipack with 16-page booklet, Limited Gatefold Double LP with 8-page booklet and Digital Download.

Weird but charming pop needs a weird and charming video. Rise up is a straight forward piece of music with a straight forward message. The combination of the audio and the pastel coloured visuals makes a great energy booster. Here is Rise Up, a lyric video made by Dario and Gabriel Mekler, from our forth coming album We Are The Truth. Look, listen, enjoy and share.

TO THOSE WHO RULE THE WORLD
This is the first piece of music and visuals from our upcoming album We Are The Truth. Enjoy the video and feel free to share it and subscribe to our YouTube channel.
This is what Hasse says about the song:
The reason we chose to make a video to the song 'To Those Who Rule The World' is because it represents the album and showcases the band in a good way. The lyrics is almost written in a naive or maybe even childish tone. Still I think it reflects the way many of us are feeling today. This is 6 minutes of crazy, sometimes groovy, sometimes epic but always accessible music, here together with a catchy video. This is HFMC and 'To Those Who Rule The World'
