Special info: CONCERTS & EVENTS in the times of the Corona Crisis
DEAR MUSIC & CONCERT FANS

We are glad that, after the last months, during which most cultural events had to be cancelled or postponed as a result of the measures taken by the Swiss Federal Council in order to restrict the spreading of the coronavirus, live concerts are slowly coming back into our lives.

However, despite the official decision to allow events with above 1’000 visitors again as of October 2020, artists and concert organisers still have to deal with constantly changing and regionally differing measures – ranging from new limitations in the canton of Zurich, via registering-apps to mandatory mask-wearing or distancing rules in other places.

Therefore, we advise you to always check the official information of each event-location directly to inform yourself about the most accurate status and regulation of the concert you want to attend. Additionally, we would like to encourage every music-fan to use the Swiss Covid App, as we strongly believe that the more people act responsibly and observe the health-recommendations, the sooner we will succeed as a community to make attending social events secure again.

In the meantime, we are trying to keep you updated as good as possible about any changes in the corresponding artist & show information pages as well as via our social media channels.

Stay healthy, follow the recommended hygiene procedures and don’t lose your love for music!
Thank you, your team at Just Because.

Matthew and The Atlas has released new track Pyres, the first track to be taken from the their third album, which is due for release on 10th May.

Morning Dancer is the third album from Matthew and the Atlas, the project led by British songwriter Matt Hegarty.

Across Hegarty's first two LPs ('Other Rivers' and 'Temple') and the four stripped back EPs that preceded and followed them, he has traversed a range of musical territories from classic acoustic folk, to dramatic synth-laden electronica, and urgent guitar led alt-rock. The common thread has been a songwriting style that marries a subtle melodic sensibility with lyrics full of natural imagery and dark emotional heft - all delivered in his striking and distinctive vocal. In the process Hegarty has quietly built a major cult following in Europe and the US, which has seen Q magazine dub him the "British Bon Iver".


As part of the Communion Records family (Matthew and The Atlas’ debut EP was the label’s first ever release) Hegarty toured his early releases extensively and internationally with the likes of Mumford and Sons, Bear’s Den, Civil Wars and others around Europe and the US. That early touring, and a passionate word-of-mouth fan base, has taken Hegarty’s music around the world and close to 100m streams across all his releases.


Armed with a collection of new songs in the second half of 2018, Hegarty found his way to Bristol based producer Ali Chant (Perfume Genius, Youth Lagoon, Gruff Rhys). They clicked immediately, and recorded and mixed Morning Dancer in an intensive six week stint, which saw Hegarty recording for the first time with his full five-piece touring band. The record has familiar elements - the energy and intensity of the live show, stripped and delicate confessional moments, and touches of the synth heavy drama that characterized his debut. To that mix, Chant and Hegarty have added flourishes of brass and woodwind and a playful looseness to the production and arrangements that takes the songs and Hegarty’s voice to a new place altogether.
