Pretty Maids Releasing New Album in March
The album is the follow up to the band's 2010 album, "Pandemonium" and was once again produced by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe)
Frontman Ronnie Atkins had this to say, "Jacob was a natural choice since we had a great experience with him producing the 'Pandemonium' album. The recordings went smooth to begin with, but then we had to start touring again during the weekends and this created some stress. Though I really feel strongly about 'Motherland'. In my view it has all the ingredients of a good Pretty Maids album, maybe even more melodic than 'Pandemonium' and absolutely, as far as I'm concerned a worthy follow up".
Atkins explains that the challenges the band faced with following up "Pandemonium," "We knew it was going to be a tough one to follow ! I remember back in the day when we had to follow up albums like "Future World", we tried more or less to copy the songs from the previous album to keep the same kind of balance. But this time we just wrote what came natural to us and that's what became 'Motherland'.
