Sring 2020 – Forced into lockdown during the Covid – 19 pandemic, we have been writing new material for future releases including a charity song (see below!)
17 July 2020 – Our charity single ‘Rain Or Shine (Charity Single)’ was released at: https://hybridspirits.bandcamp.com
Available for £1.50 (or more if people wish to help us raise money), the song was written during the Covid – 19 pandemic to raise money for the International Committee of the Red Cross. Their appeal can be seen at : https://www.irc.org/en/donate/covid-19-emergency-appeal
See more on the Bandcamp link to the song, or on the dedicated music area of this website, and please help us to raise as much money as possible. The fundraising campaign runs until April 2021. Thank you!
4 November 2019 - Online review of our “Fear” EP by Leigh Sanders of the Express and Star newspaper : Highlights include : “War Machine is arguably the highlight here, although IWTDTC (I Want The Darkness To Come) pushes it close. On this slowed down number, we are almost in Nick Cave territory at times as the dank, swampy notes swirl around us. And when Paul Kirk's guitars kick in two thirds of the way through we have a scintillating builder of a segment that stirs up the adrenaline as the titular war feels like its coming straight towards you” and “The adverts for the upcoming BBC adaptation of War Of The Worlds have begun airing. If they don't halt production to shoehorn some of this music in there then they have missed a trick” https://www.expressandstar.com/entertainment/2019/11/04/hybrid-spirits-fear-ep-review/
