Here are some of the facts about the album:

From solo project to band…
The new Fourteen Twentysix album has been written and recorded by the entire band. After Lighttown Closure we decided it was time to depart the solo-project roots. The process of becoming a band evolved our sound, way of working and outlook. All of this has clearly influenced the sound of our new album.

The beginning…
We kickstarting the project with a recording weekend in 2010 (broadcasted Live)  in an old farmhouse in the Dutch countryside. We continued work in our home studio this entire year. Working as a group has resulted in a varied and rich sound, marrying acoustic, every day object-sampled sounds and clinically digital synthesizers.

Evolution…
We’ve chosen a pre-determined concept as our starting point, which has resulted in an expansive and movie-like album. The story about birth, growth, death and re-birth spans the entire arc of light and dark, with a few unexpected shades in between…
