New Album! World Premiere at Sydney Opera House

March 15, 2012 by Rasmus

Are we happy and proud about this? YES!
Are we excited and equally scared? YES indeed!

It is our utmost pleasure to tell you that May 26th 2012 we will be performing live in Sydney Opera House together with the Sydney Symphony orchestra.

The concert will be the world premiere of our new album, which will be released later in 2012 on 4AD and Rumraket.

Our new album also has a title. We’re calling it Piramida.

For more information about the concert including tickets go here.

We are currently working intensely on the album – the previous post on this site gives you a little update. For the concert we have engaged composers Missy Mazzoli (Kronos Quartet, Victoire), Karsten Fundal (Under Byen, Choir of Young Believers) and Daniel Bjarnason (Sigur Rós, Múm) to help our new songs to fully integrate with the Sydney Symphony orchestra, which will be conducted by Matthew Coorey.

We will be performing as a six-piece, augmented by Peter Broderick (piano), Katinka Fogh Vindelev (choir) and Toby Dammit (drums). As earlier told, founding member Thomas recently left Efterklang and Toby Dammit will be his replacement in Sydney. Toby has played drums for amazing people like Iggy Pop, Rufus Wainwright and many others.
