GAZPACHO, the reigning kings of atmospheric art rock return with new album "Fireworker" due for release on Kscope on 18th September and debut the album’s title track
Gazpacho have reigned as the kings of atmospheric and affective art rock, no small feat, as the subgenre is full of wonderfully moody, ornate, and emotional artists; yet, none of them manage to achieve the same level of exquisite baroque resonance and hypnotically introspective weight as this Norwegian sextet. Gazpacho never fail to provide awe-inspiring examinations of the human condition, and their latest observation, "Fireworker," the follow up to 2018’s album "Soyuz", is no exception. It is undoubtedly among their greatest achievements, as well as one of the most profound pieces of music you’ll hear in 2020.
Conceptually, the album follows the band’s tradition of blending grand philosophical quandaries, stimulating literary leanings, and haunting personal turmoil. In a way, it acts as the culmination of the themes and techniques that has decorated earlier collections. "Fireworker" comes across like the overarching umbrella under which all of its predecessors occur.
The new album "Fireworker" will be released on Kscope on 18th September, on CD, a gatefold 2LP on 180g black vinyl (3 sides audio, 1 side art etching) and digitally) and is available to pre-order now https://gazpacho.lnk.to/Fireworker
