New Album PIRAMIDA September 24th 2012 – New Trailer Video + Artwork + Orchestral Tour in Europe and NYC

June 26, 2012 by Rasmus

We are extremely proud and happy to tell you that our new album Piramida will be released world-wide on September 24th 2012 (Sep 25th in the US) on British label 4AD and via our own little label Rumraket in Scandinavia.

You can already now pre-order the album via our webshop on CD and Vinyl.

ALBUM TRAILER

As you can watch in the album trailer above the making of our new album started out in quite unusual fashion. In August 2011 we (Mads, Casper & Rasmus) travelled to Spitsbergen in the arctic. Our destination was the abandoned Russian settlement Piramida. It was left overnight in 1998 and today stands as a ghost town still full of relics from its past including the world northernmost grand piano. We spend 9 days in this ruin just a 1000 km from the North Pole and we collected over a 1000 recordings which we afterwards have used in different ways in the making of our new album.

The song featured in the album trailer is called Dreams Today and it is track 8 on Piramida. It features Nils Frahm on piano.

The album is inspired by our trip to Piramida, but also our new home in Berlin. We promise to share much more info about the album and the making of it later on.

ORCHESTRAL PIRAMIDA CONCERTS IN EUROPE AND NYC
In conjunction with the release we will be playing 15 special Piramida Concerts together with classical orchestras in some of Europe´s finest concert halls and also in The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. We visit Ireland, UK, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Sweden and USA with The Piramida Concerts and we have also just announced three concerts in Germany with our 7-piece live band.

THE FULL TOURING SCHEDULE IS AVAILABLE here.

The artwork has also been revealed today. It is made by our long time collaborators Hvass&Hannibal. They have also made all the visuals for the Piramida Concerts, that premiered in Sydney Opera House in May. They are working on some very nice CD book style and nice vinyl editions of Piramida. You can already pre-order these now at our webshop.
