NEW Forest band Empty Frets have released a 12-track album of original songs which were recorded during the last nine months.

During Covid restrictions, band members were able to make and send individual recordings electronically which were then mixed and mastered centrally.

Empty Frets’ lead guitarist Steve Adams said that the band had lost a huge number of gigs because of the pandemic but writing and recording the album had helped lessen the disappointment of not being able to perform live.

The album, called Out Of Our Minds, is a mixture of Country Rock, Blues and Folk Rock and some tracks have already been played on local radio stations.

It is available online on Spotify, Itunes, Amazon music and Tidal or on CD.
