Herd released their third album, X, on Friday 15 February 2019. The album started off the trio’s tenth anniversary year. The album was released on Panu Savolainen’s Doorbell Music.
With the original compositions of the band members, Herd returns to its roots to multidimensional, melancholy and beautiful trio play with its new X album. The album recorded in July 2018 boldly exploits the possibilities of studio technology, although on live concerts the band still relies on the acoustic swing.
“Herd has been an important platform for me to develop as a musician, and the greatest influence when it comes to where I have ended up in my career”, Panu Savolainen comments. “X is a recapitulation of the work we have done through the years. Despite performing plentifully with different guest, our only album release as a trio is our debut released seven years ago. I hope our versatile work together with numerous musicians and genres is hearable on X.”
