Recorded at the French Drudenhaus Studios and written in bursts both during and after a prolonged period of touring in support of 2016’s hugely successful ‘Kodama‘, the new and very cathartic album is leading the black-gaze pioneers into dark soundscapes and will be released on October 25th.
Today, band leader Neige speaks about the studio recordings of the new album with Benoit Roux and explains how lengthy and difficult the writing process can sometimes be.
He also sheds light on his working process with his bandmate Winterhalter and how they complement each other. Watch the full trailer below;
