karmacoda loveandfateThese two themes kept reemerging throughout the three and a half years Karmacoda took to write and record their new album aptly titled, Volume 1 of Love and Fate.  “This is our most personal record to date” says B. (Brett Crockett) the bands vocalist.  “It was as if we had no choice in the matter, it felt like we were channeling something, it was focusing us.”

Love and Fate follows Karmacoda’s successful 2011 album Eternal and marks the band’s fifth studio release (along with numerous remix releases).  In addition to B., Eric Matsuno (bass, guitar, synth), and Isaac Ho (piano, keyboards) Love and Fate features appearances by the amazing vocalists Beth Hirsch (Air), Artemis, Shannon Hurley (Lovers and Poets), Anji Bee (Lovespirals) and Tyler Stone (Sutro) each of which sing duets with B.  
“When we wrote our last record Eternal we asked Beth and Anji to join us on vocals for the track Love Will Turn Your Head Around and it was so magical, so beautiful, I wanted to recreate that experience even more” says B.  “So we contacted these five women, with such beautiful voices - who also happen to be really good friends of ours - and thankfully they all said ‘yes’ to contributing.”  “In addition to being able to leverage the incredible talent each of these artists brought to our music, it was unprecedented to have a wider palette of tones and attitudes working with the different vocalists,” reflects bassist Eric Matsuno.  “Each one of them brought forth unique feelings creating an artistic feedback that enhanced our writing and performances helping us to discover deeper emotional intentions in each song.”
