VOLA have announced a brand new album!.
The album, titled Applause Of A Distant Crowd, is scheduled for release in October. The album was recorded at Heyman Studios in Copenhagen and at guitarist and vocalist Asger Mygind‘s home studio, mastered by Andy VanDette (PORCUPINE TREE, STEVEN WILSON, DEVIN TOWNSEND, DAVID BOWIE) and produced by Asger Mygind.
Speaking about the album, Asger Mygind says, “I was in a very different place mentally while writing the lyrics for Inmazes. I’m definitely in a happier place now. It was actually a relief to be able to have a wider range of awareness for this record. I think our songs develop in the most natural way if I let my emotional response to the music dictate what the lyrics should be about rather than following any kind of plan. This time the emotions were mostly tied to observations I’ve made about the outside world.”
The band have also released a music video for their track Smartfriend, which is taken from the upcoming album.
