Client & Toast Hawaii

October, 2, 2006 / 0 comments

Toast Hawaii, the record label of Depeche Mode member Andrew Fletcher, has lost its only band, Client. The news was already known for a while in smaller circles but has now been confirmed by Kate Holmes to Side-Line: “It was a mutual decision as Andy was touring with DM for most of 2005-6 and we didn’t want to stop Client and wait. We also became disillusioned with the way Mute got swallowed up by EMI. We still see Andy though as he lives round the corner from us. Maybe he will come on tour with us next.”

The band has just finished their new album – provisionally called ‘Heartland’ and mainly produced by Youth. The band is now looking for a release somewhere in 2007. At the moment the band has 4 licensing deals which are about to be signed for Europe, Central and North America. Client expects to be making an announcement on their website pretty soon. So what can you expect from ‘Heartland’, the 3rd Client album? Kate: “It is our best material yet and Youth has injected a New Order/NIN edge to the tracks. We also bring back the guitar for this album!”
