THE DAY IS DONE I am on my way  I 'm heading Home  I'll see you there  I made some food  Miss Erin show is On Tonight Come sit back  Relax  Enjoy yourself  When the day is done  Consider this  be in grace We are safe in here  I hear you man  I am glad we came  Go get some rest right now Silent your mind See you  Tomorrow  Blinking Light Goes on and off Seal the deal I can't go wrong Will i wash the image of you My blood down the stairs You Might in grace The peace of we craved By now I still live You are Gone You are gone The best was yet to come You left our land to burn in Grenfell
2.
Take Me Home 08:47
Take Me Home March has blossomed 15 days of light Easy living  Mother says it's all right  Out of these walls Hail the man in charge Ain't no freedom People cry from far  Take me home Run from all Guns I'm not made for  Gather all we need to go  Hit the desert Syria has left in and out Moving forward  Our new life to come 
3.
PORTRAIT OF A MAN Among those frames  You sit so silently  Before we said goodbye  I drew some lines  Do you know? Do you Know? The youth is cruel and flows Smells of remorse The youth is cruel and flows The youth is Beauty and Flows Neglect the remorse The youth is beauty and flows  Blossom on the throne! Hysteria The compass in my bones Has slit  May we climb the wall of Misery  Every time we fail  To cope alone  Gimme gimme a thought  To get through the day  Gimme a little thought right now  Take me take me take me Around for a ride  Take me for a ride at night Ethereal  like atoms that collide We'd be  But we're caught up in waters Material grief takes us apart  What we are given affects But What we have chosen  define Fertile persistence  Save us  The wise man whispers  The youth is cruel and flows Smells of remorse The youth is cruel and flows The youth is Beauty and Flows Neglect (slights )the remorse The youth is beauty and flows 
4.
Getaway 07:44
5.
RUNNING THROUGH THE LANDS Lead us in prayers  Your spirit says  May/the odds be/are in our/your favour (the odds are in our favour) Blu dusk  Smell the day  Easy  Flashing leds  The radio cut out  Drag this man to the safest way down  Through the lands this soul Knock the harrows over  Blu desks  Feel the day 
6.
Your Name 08:54
YOUR NAME Say your name On 3 ready  Stay with me  Clear  Pressure gauge Need him stable  Stay with me  Clear  Nowhere to run  Clouds pouring out  Some Fuel from above then Fire on the walls  (Just like ) Hell on the earth  Your name your name ... Hands off him  No bit here All of you  stand clear  You do not know the life you ain't lived  You cannot talk the choice you ain't taken
7.
Mother's Dirge Now you go Birds fly over the sky Soul that soar Gliding on the wind  DRY LIGHT  All we live  Find its end in decay Endless Roads Worth the ride To the humble heart  We cry our dear once when they're gone  We let the quarrels break the bond We hold them back on what the want No mending  Recoil your hand before it cuts  Bind up your mouth and it won't hurt  Appraise (sort out) what counts and  Let the grace arouse within  Let the grace arouse within  Let the grace arouse in you  in you  Like a horse  running free through the land  Safe and warm  I shall see you again  Speaking  80 eyes have seen their end  That cruel damned night the fire swelled  80 mouths have cried unheard  That cruel damned night the fire swelled  80 hands have raised uncatched  That cruel damned night the fire swelled  80 feet have run to death  That cruel damned night the fire swelled

KARMAMOI
"The Day Is Done" story

We began writing "The Day Is Done" in January 2017 with the idea of ​​experimenting with new sounds and new compositional forms. After "Silence Between Sounds" we felt the need to take a new path but remaining faithful to our overall concept of music: Experimentation, Sound, Melody, Emotion.
Daniele Giovannoni: "I had in mind to write an album that talked about our times, that musically explored the rhythms and pains of everyday life, almost like a sort of self-psychoanalysis. I have always liked to stay informed, reading everything including a wide variety of books to news on the internet, and world events - big and small - are a huge influence of me."

When the Grenfell Tower fire in London took place on 14 June 2017 the writing of the album was already well advanced. 89 people died in the burning of that London skyscraper and among the many stories, we were deeply struck by that of two Syrian boys, Omar and Mohammed, who fled from Syria in the war, finding refuge and a new life in Britain. Mohammed died in the fire and his brother was unable to help him.

Daniele: "This typified my feeling of discomfort with the world. Many of us humans are on the run and living in fear of not being accepted. The two Syrian boys typified this feeling of unease. The terror in the eyes of the survivors of the fire was the same as that of the survivors of a bombing or an attack. Certainly those who suffer a such a bombing know that it is possible there will be another, while those who are victims of a fires can hope that such a thing will never to be repeated, but the desire to escape is the same for everyone."
We decided to tell the story of Omar and Mohammed as example of millions of other stories of life and pain, which led to the decision to give the album a concept. "The Day Is Done" is dedicated to them, to all the victims of the fire of the Grenfell Tower, to all the people fleeing from wars and hunger and to all the people looking for a normal, peaceful life.
Alex Massari: "We had to transform this fundamental idea into music and words, to create a perfect snapshot to allow those who will listen to our album, to enter the atmosphere we created and feel along with us, the desire for normality of those who are terrified."

It was January 2018 when we finished writing the music for album. Initially we had 14 songs and we chose 8 of them to enter into a collaboration with Sara Rinaldi, who wrote the final English lyrics. Living in different cities we found a way to compare ideas and to send demos to each other.

Daniele: "Sometimes the distances between us makes working more complex but I have to say that most of the time it stimulates the imagination. There is a deep analysis of everything we do that often leads us in new directions."

Alex Massari:" Daniele sends me the demos of the songs, I listen to them and we discuss them on Skype. Then I play my guitars, always looking for the heart of the song. I find it a very creative way of working. Obviously, without internet all this would not be possible, and in all probability Karmamoi would not exist, at least in this form."

The recordings began in Rome at the end of March 2018. We recorded the voices at the Latte Più studio owned by Gabriele Sorrentino. After playing at the Winter's End Festival, at the beginning of May 2018 we went to Eynsham near Oxford at the ARC At Abbey Street Studios for drum and guitar recording sessions. It was a wonderful experience. At the studio, Ted, David and the other staff allowed us to be focused and relaxed, letting the music flow spontaneously, without obstacles. Mark Tucker, our sound engineer and co-producer with us on the album, did the rest. Mark is incredible. Having already worked with us on "Silence Between Sounds" he knows perfectly exactly what we want. Mark is our sound creator, who transforms what we create into the sound of Karmamoi.

Daniele Giovannoni: "I met Mark a few years ago when I visited his studio to record the drums for a folk-rock singer. We immediately hit it off after, and after I gave him a demo, I suggested he work with us on the Karmamoi project and he accepted immediately. It was fantastic. To think - the sound engineer of Jethro Tull working with Karmamoi. Incredible."

" The Day Is Done" is a story that accompanies the listener through the lucid madness of a reality that we often do not want to see. It is a raw portrait, which via composition, sound and lyrics makes us aware of who we are and what we probably would not want to be. On "The Day Is Done" there are many great musicians as guests, among them Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree ) and Geoff Leigh (Steven Wilson, Ex-Wise Heads).

Daniele: "I met Colin last year at a drumming festival in Milan where he played with his band. We kept in touch and when I later asked him to play on the new Karmamoi album, he said 'yes', saying that he liked the project very much.”
At the time of writing, we have received the final mixes from Mark. When we listened to our finished work we did not hide our emotion. Now the album is ready to go to print. We are very eager to let you listen to it, in the hope that it will move you and excite you in the same way it does us. "The Day Is Done" will be released by "Sonicbond " and distributed by "Nova" via "Plastichead"

Alex: "' The Day Is Done ' is definitely the best album we've made so far”
Daniele:" I totally agree with Alex "
