The impression is misguided: In fact, the last album "A Perfect Solution" by British synthpop favourites mesh had been issued approximately three years ago. The accompanying remix album that followed in 2011 contributed its part to ensure that the wait wasn't too long. New material, however, is, of course, preferred by the fans and is finally announced in the form of a new studio album called "Automation Baby" at the beginning of March. Recently the duo released the single "Born To Lie" and delivered a short insight into the latest studio performances via a video message. How the things are now, reveals one half of the band, Richard 'Rich' Silverthorn, in an interview.
"The response to the single is overwhelming so far!", he says pleased and explains: "We made a short video of us in the studio to
give our fans an idea of how the new single will sound like. Since the reaction was great, we thought that the show in Krefeld would be a good
opportunity to present it live for the first time and we were really positively shocked that night how many people had already been able to sing
along! Well, actually it's always better to publish something and then give people some time to get used to it before playing it at a concert. But
'Born To Lie' seems already be a hit without time to market. This gives you somehow a little ego-kick and the confirmation that the choice of the
first single was right. This feedback was very important because when you spend so much time in the studio, there's simply someone missing who
tells you if you did a good job or not."
