Parisian post metal duo Alcest will be releasing their new album this fall via Prophecy Productions.
Comments vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Neige:
“For the past 3 months we have been recording our new album, and right now we are doing small adjustments on the mix.”
“It’s coming to an end of a very long journey (the longest studio experience we’ve had so far) and we feel quite exhausted, but really happy. For each album we try to challenge ourselves, developing the songs in new directions. This time will be just as special, but also a return to the approach we had in our earlier albums; with intense songs full of contrasts and dynamics. Even if this album is quite “alien” in character, we felt the need to come back to the origins of the project. The release date is planned for Autumn 2016 and then we will embark on a 37 date European co-headlining tour with the Japanese band MONO. We are very much looking forward to this tour and to show you the work of our last couple of years.”
The band will take part on this summer’s 2016 Prophecy Fest on July 29-30, 2016 inside Balver Höhle, “a natural cave from old stone age” in Balve, Germany. For more information, go here.
