That time has come: holidays are finally arrived, we wish you a great summer!
See you in September with new stories, and a live act scheduled in autumn!
As for the last two years, Andy will do a vlog of his vacation (IT); follow him on Instagram follow to get some spoilers on this year's location!
From today, Andy will not longer be part of his side Project "Kraanston". As bassist and lead voice, Andy joined the Sludge-Metal project in 2016,
releasing the first album "Northern Influence" in March 2019.
This is caused by a very troubled studio and promotional activity during the last year, which compromised every future plan.
Fabio (guitar, voice) is the only member left; for this reason the project will be idle for undetermined time. My esteem for Fabio will remain unchanged, wishing that he can continue his musical activity in the next years.
The album "Northern Influence" is now available in free download @ Bandcamp.
Andy's musical path surely continues in The Selfish Cales, and in his Youtube Channel (IT) about musical instruments, travel blog (sometimes) and weird food reviews.
I take the opportunity to wish you good holidays!
Best wishes to our Andy Cale, 30 years old today!
Here in a photo dating back to its bass days ?
(Making Of "Psychedelic Eyes" Videoclip, Summer '11 ?)
Follow him on his Youtube Channel!
Happy birthday to our Keyboardist, Alberto!
Starting today, in addition, his debut on Youtube: Alberto will be a guest of Andy in various episodes of the "Musical Instruments" Youtube series, with stories, insights and road tests of ethnic
or unconventional instruments.
The protagonist of this first episode is the Hang Drum!

Our second "Live In studio" Videoclip is out now: Smokey Shades, taken from our latest album "Haapsalu"! Performed in our Rehearsal Room.
Back to #liveinstudio! Matter of weeks, and we'll return on Youtube with another session from our rehearsal room.
Meanwhile, another great review from Rockit. Many thanks to Mattia Nesto!
"Haapsalu presents the desire to continue the cycle of musical experimentation that has characterized the evolution of The Selfish Cales during their career: a powerful work, well studied and well
done. Nothing is left to random and the details that stand out during listening confirm the remarkable result of this latest work."
We are proud to share some other great feedbacks from our last album, Haapsalu! You can find the latest review in the press section.
Andy's alter-ego is back: Kraanston!
Andy's side-project has released the new, first album "Northern Influence", recommended to all Metalheads: a hybrid that combines the sludge/thrash of High On Fire with the prog/death of Cynic, with slowdowns reminiscent of the masters of doom Cathedral.
Listen on Bandcamp!
Happy birthday, "Throw Your Watch To The Water"!
In occasion of the fourth anniversary of our second album, here's a gift for you: available in free download @ Bandcamp until 15 March!
Just insert 0€ as price in "buy album" section ;)
Back to the stage! New gig scheduled @ Circolo ARCI Camalli, Imperia, February 16th!
The "Fairytales, Nowadays" lyric video was made by Andy, with a composition of waxworks progressively added in the frame.
During the making of there was a curious out-of-program, in which Andy was able to show off his bad votes in Physics in his high school days. Final crackling theme! ?
You can find it in our Video section!
We conclude this year happily, thankful to all who spent some words, feedback and interest to our latest album, Haapsalu. By the way: take a look to the new Andy's interview made by Metal
Heads Forever Magazine!
We salute this year with a new song taken from Haapsalu: Fairytales, Nowadays.
Watch the lyric video dedicated to the most intimate song of our latest album, giving you the best wishes for a radiant and successful new year!
We are very excited to share this story: Andy has recently been interviewed by Ohtuleht - one of the main newspapers in Estonia - about the inspiration that led him to compose "Haapsalu", and the baltic influences in our latest album.
A wonderful occasion, in which share with the Estonian readers the influence of that holiday day at Haapsalu in the composition of our last album, three years ago.
Many thanks to Terttu Jazepov!

That day has come: we are excited to present our third album Haapsalu, now available in digital streaming and download @ Spotify, Bandcamp, Itunes, Amazon and Youtube Music. A CD version is scheduled for the next month!
In the background, Haapsalu: a village of eleven thousand souls in the West of Estonia, protagonist of a trip made two years ago that influenced the whole album production. It's been a wandering course with many changes, in which we have done all our best in composition and studio activity.
Chapter 2! We are very proud to present the title-track of our upcoming album, Haapsalu! An intense journey in front of the baltic sea, in western Estonia.
You can find it on Youtube, anticipating the album release scheduled for Friday 19th October.

Wow: Chestnut Maze, first song taken from the upcoming album Haapsalu, out now on Volcano Records Youtube Channel!
This song anticipates the new sound of the project. Andy, the only member left from The Selfish Cales original line up, will present with the new album - Haapsalu - an intense turn of sound in territories straddling Psychedelic and Progressive Rock: lush keyboards, vocal harmonisations, protagonist bass and jangle guitars.
We are excited to finally unveil the new release scheduled for this fall, by Volcano Records and Promotion: Haapsalu, our third
This album will be the result of our last three years of activity, years in which the project has faced deep changes.
In the background, Haapsalu: a city of eleven thousand inhabitants overlooking the Baltic Sea, in Estonia.
The album will be released in Digital on October 19th for all known streaming and download platforms, plus a CD version in the winter.
We are goin' on holiday! We would like to thank you for the first feedbacks around the new videoclip, and the release announcement scheduled for this autumn. Our last videoclip is also reported

Glad to see our song "Sulphureous Haze" in a Spotify playlist made by L.A. based "Heat On The Street" website! Many thanks to Todd McCarty ;) Listen here
Meanwhile our studio activity continues, and we are going to release a last extract from the album "Throw Your Watch To The Water" during this summer.
We discovered it a day later, but there's the podcast online: "Sulphureous Haze" is been featured in Steve Kirkland radio broadcast on CKCU FM (Ottawa)!
Glad about the first 1000 views reached by Palladium Videoclip in these first ten days! We hope you've appreciate it
By the way, Andy started a new recurrence: for every new release, he opens a new bottle of Whiskey or some other spirits. Starting from the previous videoclip, he inaugurates a new gallery section that will lists the bottles.
We wish him so many other bottles, but respecting his liver! :P
Here's the video: a taste of Psychedelic Rock, charmed by a little village near the border between Italy and France, Torre Pellice.
The new line-up is back: Palladium, out now!
Goodbye, "Sala 24"! That little, subterranean rehearsal room in our city has been the place which the reboot of the Cales took part. We will move in a more equipped place in these days, but we
will not forget you and these last months :(
For this reason, we have done various "live in studio" shoots before moving, and you will see it in a upcoming videoclip. See you on Youtube, next week!
Do you remember Gabriel Cale? What about him?
Gabriel, ex-former frontman, started a new studio solo project after the departure from the band. We support his new musical path and we wish him the best.
He likes to do covers on Youtube, but also some new songs in a very "Old Cales" style: you can find him in a dedicated Spin-Off section in this site!
We are very glad to present you the new, totally rebooted line up of The Selfish Cales!
Andy Cale - Main Vocals, Guitar
Giuseppe "Peppe" Floridia - Bass, Backing Vocals
Alberto Rocca - Keyboards, Backing Vocals
Luca Zanon - Drums
Take a look to the updated line up section to discover more about the new guys!
