Studio Album, release April 2022

Das dritte Album der Patchwork Family.

What started as pastime fun by Gerd Albers 10 or so years ago under the nonchalant name of "Project Patchwork", has become one of the most intriguing projects in contemporary Prog Rock.Featuring a whole armada of guest vocalists and musicians, recruited from cream of the crop bands like Mystery, Subsignal, SSTTGD, Flaming Row, Cosmos, Pink Cream 69, Jossi Sassi Band  and with the help from Martin Schnella at engineering and mastering, Gerd Albers and Peter Koll provide a dark themed album, without ommiting  a much needed glim of light.

Ultima Ratio a retrospection in the year 2020 – a cruel year due to the Covid 19 pandemic. We are currently in late winter of 2022 and it´s still not over yet! We are in the middle of the 5th wave now, with very high case rates – higher than ever before! This album and it´s textual concept is not designed for discussing the existence of the virus or the pandemic, it´s an attempt to describe the social results of the long-time lockdown situation and other measures – in Germany and worldwide. And the question is, if this ultima ratio solution is proportional to the consequences of these policies, and if they possibly are more serious and wearing than ever expected?
