Sit down on my open palm Warm from the sun I swear we are almost there And there's nothing ahead And we'll fall Silvery, clear and slow As in love And we'll fall Silvery, clear and slow As in love Light steps Walking side by side We'll wait for the lights to go out And we'll fall Silvery, clear and slow As in love And we'll fall Silvery, clear and slow As in love And we'll fall


The album will be also released on CD as bonus-disc in the reissue of "Losing The Sun" released by These Hands Melt.

A note on "The Harvest Of Our Bitter Labours"

The writing and recording originally started around the release of "Losing The Sun" (with the exception of the bonus track "Silvery Clear and Slow" which was written in 2021) and was planned as follow-up release to it.

As the title implies it should conceptualize the strife and struggles of agricultural life of the past as metaphors for the struggles of the human condition and human experience.

Yet it didn't come to pass. Just as unforseen events and unfavourable seasons can destroy the yield of the crop life's cycles put work on the album to a screeching halt. It was a winter of words and all the strings were frozen, so to speak.

But as seasons change perpetually - as within so without - it is now time for you to hold this album in your hands. I sincerely hope you enjoy listening to this glimpse into the past and - even though it is mostly instrumental in nature - can relate to it's implications.
