Engineers are a British shoegaze band, composed of Simon Phipps (vocals/guitars), Mark Peters (vocals/guitars/bass), Daniel Land (bass), Ulrich Schnauss (keyboards), and Gilbert Linley (drums).
Following the rapturous reception that greeted their mini-album Folly in 2004 and debut Engineers the following year, it’s taken them a long time to build the epic that is Three Fact Fader. After initial recording sessions with producer Ken Thomas, Engineers became unwitting victims of record company restructuring and the album was left in limbo, unfinishe d until the band reconvened earlier this year, largely motivated by public support. “We seem to appeal to people in a really deep way – people tell us our music has helped them through intense times in their lives,” explains Mark Peters. “This is why it was so important to get the album released, it means so much more than the peripheral aspects of releasing records.”
