Don’t hesitate to drop us a message on these platform or on our website!

The production of the CD will start soon

We received last friday some fresh news from Hurricane Entertainment, the company which is the intermediary between the pressing factory (OK Media) and us. The factory has finished the “final proof” for the cover and the CD, which is the last step before starting the production.

They should be able to communicate us a delivery date in the coming days, and as a result we will soon be able to announce the release date of Dead Frequencies, the first album of Marker Beacon.

We would like to thank all our friends and fans for their support and their patience!

The release of our upcoming album is getting closer ! If everything goes well, we should be able to release it in may. The release date will be officially announced on this website. But for the impatient fans… you can already discover the front image of Dead Frequencies below.

It was designed by our friend Aurélia. We would like to thank her again for her hard work and we hope that she enjoyed to work on this project.

The pressing of “Dead Frequencies” is authorized by the SACEM

We received yesterday the authorization from the SACEM/SDRM (french authors guild) for the replication of our CD Dead Frequencies. This authorization is mandatory before sending the pressing request to the factory.

This authorization is free for us as we are the composers and authors of the music and because we are not members of the SACEM. It was done through their web interface http://opo.sacem.fr.
