VNV NATION DEBUTS NOIRE

“WHEN IS THE FUTURE?” VNV’S FIRST-EVER

OFFICIAL VIDEO HERALDS ITS ARRIVAL

Legendary electronic act VNV Nation is proud to release their latest opus / highly-anticipated 10th studio album – NOIRE.  The album is out October 12th via Metropolis Records, the day VNV embarks on a world tour, which kicks off in North America on November 16, 2018. VNV’s creative-force, Dublin-born Ronan Harris, describes “Noire” as a "dark and intense energy that doesn’t hold back."  Early media has called the album “Cinematic” and “Majestic.”

 

The band’s first official video for “When Is The Future?” was released via the band’s social media on October 8, 2018.  In the first 72 hours it had been live, the video garnered over 177,000 views via Youtube and Facebook.  The clip takes us on a tour of Tokyo, following Harris throughout the city, the mood matching the dramatic soundtrack.

 

Hamburg, Germany-based VNV Nation is known for unforgettable, energetic and inspiring live performances. The live-show promises more to fans than seen before, presenting “Noire” alongside fan favourites and rarities. Special appearances from Berlin synthpop artist De/Vision and Cologne’s dark, new-wave upstarts, Holygram.

"VNV" stands for "Victory Not Vengeance", espousing the artist’s core message that, "One should strive to achieve, not sit in bitter regret."  The sound blends poetic and thought-provoking lyrics and emotive music, ranging from electronic beats, alternative anthems and haunting ballads, to post-classical. Over its career, VNV Nation’s success has continued to grow. Its last 3 albums charted top 10 in Germany, and its last album Resonance achieved top 5 Billboard Chart positions in the US.

– ZENI GEVA & STEVE
ALBINI –

‘MAXIMUM IMPLOSION’ – 2CD OUT NOW!

ZENI GEVA & STEVE ALBINI
MAXIMUM IMPLOSION
2 x CD (CSR260CD)
Soundcloud   Soundcloud
MAXIMUM IMPLOSION collects all collaborative (and most sought after) pieces between Zeni Geva (KK NULL) and Steve Albini (BIG BLACK / SHELLAC): “Nai-Ha” and “All Right, You Little B*st*rds!”. Also included are bonus tracks from the ultra-limited 12″-only “Superunit”, presented with meticulous Cedar mastering by legendary mastering engineer Denis Blackham.

On the first CD, Zeni Geva present ultra-heavy Japanese noise rock, with sludgy riffs, thundering feedback, lumbering drums, subhuman bass crawl, and complex noise textures, with KK Null’s trademark vocals / unique guitar accompanied by Albini’s heavy guitar. “Nai-Ha” loosely translates to “broken inside”, with the title track relaying the gruesome aftermath of a car accident.

The second CD captures Zeni Geva and Steve Albini’s live-to-desk tracks from Tokyo & Osaka in 1992. Albini also makes vocal appearances, as well as guitar throughout. All production and mixing by Steve Albini. Final mastering by Martin Bowes at Cage Studios in England, and presented here in its complete form for the first time on Cold Spring.

Presented in a 6-panel double digipak with original artwork/photo by Mitsushiro Hiruma and design/layout by Alonso Urbanos.

Steve Albini continued to produce / engineer several albums for Zeni Geva, including “Desire For Agony” (Alternative Tentacles) and “10,000 Light Years” (Neurot Recordings).

Style: Berlin School Electronic
« Catvaratempo » is the new album from Frédéric Gerchambeau and Bertrand Loreau. It is a new combination of Fréderic’s experimental sequences with Bertrand Loreau’s sensitive universe. Because of their differences the two composers create an unique landscape of sounds and sequences. They built a bridge between berlin school and more experimental, or even avant-garde music.

« Catvara » means the number “four” in a very old language, the Sanskri. The four tracks are like four different spiritual ways on four different mountains, to get closer to the common world of peace and love.

The two musicians want to go back to the spirtit of the seventies, when Berlin School was like a door opened to new sounds and atmospheres and could be heard as a search for cosmic connections.

This CD will be a great experience for all fans of old analog sequences and pads that will catch the winks to Klaus Schulze’s Timewind or Tangerine Dream’s Rubycon, for example. Feel invited to explore this innovative blend of electronic impulses.

Mastered by Michel Geiss (known for his cooperation with Jean-Michel Jarre)

Artists: Bertrand Loreau & Frédéric Gerchambeau
