The Vintage Caravan Announces New Album "Arrival"

Icelandic classic rock trio The Vintage Caravan announced the first details of the upcoming sophomore album, entitled "Arrival." The album is set for release this May via Nuclear Blast. Renowned American Artist David Paul Seymour created the psychedelic artwork (shown below).

The band commented on the new release: "We are so excited for the release of the upcoming album. It's definitely a step forward for us musically and we are incredibly happy with how natural the recording process was and how well all of the songs turned out. Get ready for Arrival!"

The band recorded the follow-up to 2014's critically acclaimed "Voyage" on an isolated fjord where they set up a studio in an old ballroom. The band once again worked with producer Axel "Flexi" Árnason who also produced their last album.

Commented the band: "The songwriting sessions have been going on since around October 2012 when our album Voyage had been out in Iceland for a month. We immediately started writing at that point so some of the songs are quite old for us. Because of that we have a bit too many songs but we intend to make this album around 10 tracks so we can put what we think are the best tracks on the album.

"Right now we are doing demos, polishing the stuff and thinking of ways to nicely add to the production of the songs.

"We are very excited to start recording this album. It's going to be interesting to work on. The album is a bit different from our previous album - it's a bit darker, a bit heavier, a bit more melodic but definitely all in a good way."

More information is expected shortly. More...

The Vintage Caravan Releases Trailer For Debut LP

Icelandic psychedelic rockers The Vintage Caravan posted a preview clip for the upcoming new album "Voyage." The album will be released on January 10th (EU) and January 21st (North America) via Nuclear Blast Records.

The band was formed in 2006 in Reykjavik, Iceland when two 12 year old kids named Óskar Logi and Guðjón Reynisson decide to form their own band. Inspired by the tasteful record collections of their parents, the duo rudimentarily starts to work on music. Three years in, the band had already written and recorded their self-titled debut album which eventually would be released in 2011. Drawing attention with the more psychedelic bluesy direction of their early material, The Vintage Caravan would soon play all around Iceland, gaining more and more fans – and not only in their native country. Just a few months later, in late 2012, "Voyage," the band‘s second effort was released through one of Iceland’s biggest record labels. Unfortunately though, "Voyage" did not make its way across the home country’s borders and not many people are able to take notice of the classic rock these youngsters have to offer.

The track list for "Voyage" is:

1. Craving
2. Let Me Be
3. Do You Remember
4. Expand Your Mind
5. M.A.R.S.W.A.T.T.
6. Cocaine Sally
7. Winterland
