An unlikely return to the musical scene is the upcoming popularity of the analog audio cassette. Sales of audio cassettes have rocketed over the last few years with increasing popularity especially in the metal scene. But interest in the audio cassette in increasing in other music scenes as well. Especially in combination with download codes for Hi Res versions of the content the audio cassette seems to become the ideal music gadget.
As we released multiple album on audio casette only during the ’80’s of the last century we have always had a weak spot for this format. The Ferro-Chrome label is a brand new venture based on an old fashioned format. The label combines the old with the new as each release is a combination of a cassette with a digital download and unlimited streaming via Bandcamp.
We expect the first release(s) on the label before this summer.
