Collaboration Between ZWEIZZ, Joey Hopkins to Recieve Release Through Jester Records

ZWEIZZ, the experimental project of FLEURETY/ex-DØDHEIMSGARD member Svein Egil Hatlevik (aka Hologram, Magic/Logic), has confirmed the release of his collaboration with the late Joey Hopkins simply titled, Zweizz & Joey Hopkins. Jester Records will be releasing the album in November.

Hatlevik issued the following message:

“I am happy to announce that the first and only album by ZWEIZZ & Joey Hopkins will be released through Jester Records in 2010.

“I met Joey Hopkins through the social networking site Myspace. We initiated a cooperation in 2007 that lasted until Joey’s untimely death in December 2008.

“By then we had made eleven song sketches. I only spoke with him on the telephone once, and we were discussing meeting IRL, but somehow we didn’t feel like there was any hurry. Then suddenly he was gone.

“I have tried to make an album that both his mother and the rest of his family can remember him by – as well as being a statement that lives up to my somewhat idiosyncratic artistic standards. And of course, I can just assume that Joey would have approved of the songs in their respective final states. It can be difficult to kill the darlings of a friend who has already went onwards.

“I hope I have succeeded in making this an album that he would have liked, and I want to share this music with as many people as possible to celebrate the memory of the immense talent of Joey Hopkins. It has been an honour to work with you.

“Some words to describe the musick: Electronic, hectic like a can of worms, some pop surfaces, distorted, melodic most of the time, some black metal influences, some IDM influences. IT’S LIKE A GOLEM.”

The tracklisting is as follows:

1. “Eternal Puberty” – feat. Ingrid Berge
2. “dWill to dPower / Tomorrow
3. “Black Strobes” – feat. Torgny Knutson Amdam
4. “Bimbo Rimjob
5. “Porcelain Dolls in the Bath
6. “The Goat” – feat. Kristoffer Rygg
7. “Armies of General Nonsense
8. “Smash, Politics, Gag
9. “How We Ate The Flesh” – feat. Ingrid Berge
10. “No Clue” – feat. Czral
11. “Compulsar Massive” – feat. Kim Sølve

Hatlevik assures an additional remix by UPLAND and hints at the likelihood of additional material.
