Dear friends, followers, music lovers, and passers-by!
Today is the day for the most important thing we want to tell you about what’s happening there, behind the curtains of lockdown.
A year ago Transport Aerian turned from a one-man studio project into a team of four free-thinking musical personalities – Stefan Boeykens (guitar), Umut Eldem (piano/keyboards), Paul De Smet (drums, violin), and yours sincerely. We hoped to deliver a reasonable amount of live shows celebrating our reasonably rich legacy in the new format. COVID-19 destroyed these plans and made us postpone all the shows until the situation stabilized, but we stayed together and found ourselves in the situation when making something new, writing together was the intuitive thing to do.
So here we are, working on a new album. Just like previous Transport Aerian albums, this will be a concept, story-driven piece, under the title Skywound. The album will be a logical and spiritual development of the themes and plots that we explored in our album Darklue (2015).
However, unlike never before, Transport Aerian is working on music together as a team, with myself only focusing on the lyrics and artistic direction (and singing and playing bass obviously!).
The album is set to be released via Melodic Revolution Records (USA) in late September 2021, and we are hoping that the pandemic will subside enough for us and our dear followers to be safe enough to enjoy a supporting set of live shows, both in Belgium and abroad.
Additionally, we release a new music video and a single titled Falling 20, which is to come out on all the digital retailers worldwide in March 2021.
Watch the teaser here,

We hope you will be with us when all this will come. We appreciate you being with us through all these difficult times.
