Osada Vida have revealed the title and artwork for upcoming album Particles – their first since the addition of vocalist Mark Majewski.
And keyboardist Rafal Paluszek, who designed the cover, says it matches with the Polish outfit’s spirit of evolution.
He explains: “We decided to make it minimalist and simple. Frankly, we had enough of excessively elaborate, gloomy imagery which you can see everywhere. Who said rock music goes only with gloomy artwork? As usual, we decided to go against the dominating trend.
“I think it’s for the best because there’s a lot of light and space in those graphics, and there’s also a couple of symbols whose meaning we leave for our listeners to interpret.
“We really wanted to show all the changes we’ve gone through. We’ve become a quintet and our music keeps evolving. A lot has changed since the release of Uninvited Dreams in 2009. Osada’s somewhere else now – though the most important values remain.
“I hope you’ll hear all the things I’m talking about when you listen to our album.”
Particles will be released on March 25 via Metal Mind Productions. Full details will be announced in the coming weeks.
