LAIBACH have released the video for ‘Vor Sonnen-Aufgang’, taken from their latest album Also Sprach Zarathustra: https://youtu.be/b39CfCN2bNE.

 

The music for the album was originally created for a theatrical production of Thus Spoke Zarathustra (Also Sprach Zarathustra) based on Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophical novel of the same name, which premiered in March 2016. Also Sprach Zarathustra is an update of the music Laibach created for the play, directed by Matjaž Berger for the Anton Podbevšek Theatre (APT) in Novo mesto, Slovenia. Watch a teaser for the album here, featuring ‘Ein Verkündiger’ and footage from the production: https://youtu.be/MZP79R7F1Rw

Laibach’s infamous North Korean tour (in 2015, on the anniversary of the DPRK’s liberation from Japan) is documented in Liberation Day, a film directed by Morten Traavik described by MOJO as “a humorous, disturbing, illuminating and sometimes moving immersion into an anomalous communist mirror-world …” while Vulture Hound said, "Imagine George Orwell directing Spinal Tap and you’re somewhere close to the mark."

Liberation Day is out via iTunes and is currently screening at film festivals worldwide, for the latest details go to http://www.liberationday.film/

The Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid are currently hosting a retrospective of Laibach art and the NSK. Laibach Kunst 1980 + Neue Slowenische Kunst 1984 – 1992: From Kapital to Capital will run until 8 January 2018. Watch a short film here: https://youtu.be/0_GADKXjsJQ.
