Detour 33 has signed to Finland-based Humu Records. The first single is out now

Detour 33 (from Kuopio, Finland) has signed to Humu Records. The group’s debut studio album, Tamed by Fear, is set to be released on February 24th 2017. The album is a collection of musically filled murky crime drama, Film noir, as well as nostalgic scenes of the Finnish summer.

Detour 33 is a road, and its story begins from the crossroad of three guitarists. Markus Väisänen has an exceptional ability to play the most delicate tones, to gently lift and descent the images and whispers of the mind. His musical palette combines our own Finnish melodic heritage and americana. Väisänen started composing the material with his previous group Taipale. Now in Detour 33 the material has found a worthy co-painter from Juuso Kolho. The holy trinity is completed with Jarkka Rissanen, an artist who has made an eventful and colorful journey as a Finnish songwriter.

The band was formed in 2013. Väisänen was working on his solo album and when he heard Kolho play with his former group Kim Curly Band he asked him to join him.
-At the beginning we made music from Kuopio to Australia, the ocean and more than 155 degree (70C) temperature difference between us. I was working on the songs in the winter of North Savo whereas Juuso, feeling awfully home-sick, was doing his part in the heat of Western Australia, Väisänen tells about the early stages of the band.

Drummer Janne Mathlin joined the band. He had been playing with Väisänen for more than ten years in different projects. The legendary Finnish guitarist Jarkka Rissanen also joined in the preproduction stage of the album, and had a significant impact to the result.

Digital single Back Home can be streamed from the link below and will be available via all digital outlets. The album is out February 24th on CD and digital formats via Humu Records.
