More information: The band’s first release, a four-track EP "Absent Friends" issued in 2011, was described in Prog magazine as “a thoughtful calling card… A stately affair that shows some Floyd influences”. Since then WARMRAIN have been out of the spotlight, quietly crafting the intense and deeply personal double album.
Conceived and written by Leon J Russell, BACK ABOVE THE CLOUDS is based on a true story, “adapted,” according to Russell, “to appeal to everyone. As human beings, we all share in the universal experience of heart-breaking loss, and during the after-effects we have to discover coping mechanisms that will give us the strength to rebuild ourselves and our lives”.
The concept was brought to life by guitarist Matthew Lerwill and bassist Simon Bradshaw, with Russell handling vocals, guitar and drums, and tells how the person who lived through this story kept a series of journals, documenting the thoughts and feelings they were experiencing. BACK ABOVE THE CLOUDS is made up solely of extracts from these journals.
A must have for fans of Pink Floyd, Steven Wilson and Anathema.
