We recorded our band’s debut concert in January this year at Vernissa in Finland. We wanted to have a record of this night and we wanted to have a good one! We think it’s a fitting way to set the scene for Frozen Factory’s future and we invite you to take a peek at some our new material making it to the stage for the very first time. It was a pleasure to play to a small but lively audience in the atmospheric Vernissa where the light shows are local legend.
We had an amazing, nervous and galvanising experience performing our first gig together in January this year and we had planned to gradually release our pro-shot record of this entirely new music being performed over the coming months. Corona has changed everything and we feel that it’s the right time to share this positive experience with as many people as possible since finding live entertainment is getting harder across the globe. So on Friday 20.3. We’ll be premiering ‘In The Beginning’ Frozen Factory Live @ Vernissa much earlier than planned. We hope you find our first moments on stage together to be entertaining and we’ll consider you a part of our early story. Here’s the event https://www.facebook.com/events/1416919961841777/
Our new single Tiresome Times is out now on all major streaming and download services worldwide. This is the first release from our new lineup featuring Stephen Baker on vocals who joined the band in Spring 2019 and Mici Ehnqvist on guitar who joined in Summer 2019. We’re not planning to stop here and this will lead soon to a full album.
Stephen had this to say…
“We’re really excited to release something with this lineup as it feels like we’ve been creating almost non-stop in the background away from other ears. It’s a good time to release this song that was written before the current pandemic crisis but seems to reflect even more strongly the worries of the world right now. I wanted the lyrics to tell about how I have struggled to comprehend a world full of brainwashing news outlets, endless working hours, terrible deals for employees and never ending bills, all of which leave us no happier for the efforts we make. Whilst many of us fake solidarity with the richest people on Earth, those hoarders of wealth repay that blind faith with a kind of selfishness and abuse that is incredibly sad to see. Here’s hoping that common people everywhere get to know each other and unite to give all of us a better life and to protect the very core of life that is our planet.”
Here it is! The first single from our upcoming debut album ‘Planted Feet’ is now available on YouTube as a music video. The title of the track is ‘Tiresome Times’ and it’s a diverse sounding track that grows from a soft verse into a heavy chorus and twists towards a calm and thoughtful crescendo. In the video we play do-gooder activists who find that their message of peace and wellbeing for all is hard to deliver to a public who are uncomfortable with their stance.
The song will be generally released on 13.3.2020. Check it out now on YouTube…
Tiresome Times will be the first single from our debut album Planted Feet and is due to be released first via our YouTube channel on Friday 6.3. and then globally on all major streaming and download services on Friday 13.3.

While preparing our First album and singles we had some time to make a few extra recordings at one of our homes in Porvoo, Finland. The sessions include only Tomi and Steve this time around who felt compelled first to play around with a cover version of William DuVall’s recent song ‘The Veil Of All My Fears”. The idea with that cover version was to spend a single day learning and recording the song and video. The result was a fun day with some good lessons learnt about productivity on a tight schedule. A few weeks later we decided to try the same process with some of our as yet unused songs and one song penned for our debut album. We took these sessions as another step in our growth and challenged ourselves to rehearse and record all four songs in a day. The result is not so serious, not so polished but we’re pleased to share with you our cover of DuVall’s acoustic masterpiece and two of the songs from our later four song session.
When determination strikes the human race, it creates inspiration and innovation at such a rate that nothing can stop us from reaching our chosen destination as soon as possible.This is a mantra to live by and although we are ‘Frozen’ by name, we’re not standing still for a minute until we follow through with our vision.Where do we find determination? We find it in the moment that we realise something needs to be done.What is our ‘Factory’ producing next? Find out when we break the ice away later this year.
