AN IMPORTANT (and exciting) ANNOUNCEMENT FROM HOLOPHONOR
Dear friends and fans,
In August 2015, we headed into Henson Studios in Hollywood, CA, to record the music for our second album "Light Magnet". Taking on the role of producer for these recording sessions was one of our greatest musical heroes: jazz legend and pioneer of modern music : Mr. Wayne Shorter. Encouraged by Mr. Shorter's spirit and wise guidance, these recording sessions took on a special significance for all of us. Two years later, we are beyond thrilled to announce that "Light Magnet" will be released on August 18 on Alpha Pup/World Galaxy records in CD, LP and digital formats. To celebrate the release of "Light Magnet" we will be performing at the Blue Whale in Los Angeles on August 18 and 19. This new album embodies our new experiences and musical ideas and we're very excited to show you what we've been working on!

We'd also like to take this chance to thank all of our supporters, followers, fans, friends and family. A big THANK YOU to all the donors who supported our fundraising campaign to produce "Light Magnet". We couldn't have done it without you! We can't wait to share our new music with you, and we hope see you soon at one of our concerts!
