Langfinger Announces Fall European Tour Dates

Gothenburg power trio Langfinger will kick off a European tour next month. The mini tour - which runs from September 28th through October 7th -- serves as a momentary writing break for the band who are in the midst of composing their fourth album. And the band will be test driving some of those new tunes live.

Issues Langfinger in a collective statement, "It's gotten to the point where it's becoming this thing, where the buildup and what we've been planning is finally coming together. It's maturing into a heavy record with a whole lot of energy. It's a perfect thing for us to head out and try some of the new material live, as well as jamming our older songs."

Langfinger released the "Crossyears" full-length last year via Small Stone. The ten-track long-player was recorded by Johan Reivén and Olle Björck at Sweden's Welfare Sounds Studio with additional recordings by Langfinger at Beduin HQ, mixed by Olle Björck, and mastered by Daniel Johansson.

Langfinger Releases New Video

Gothenburg power trio Langfinger issued the "Crossyears" full-length album via Small Stone late last month.

The ten-track offering was recorded by Johan Reivén and Olle Björck at Sweden's Welfare Sounds Studio, with additional recordings by Lanfginger at Beduin HQ, mixed by Olle Björck, and mastered by Daniel Johansson.

In celebration of its release, today a brand new video for the track "Fox Confessor" has come online and can be seen below. Elaborates the band of the clip:

"'Fox Confessor' is the first collaboration between Langfinger and cinematographer Anders Bryngel. We were exploring the idea of working together for some years and with the new album looming, it was more appropriate than ever. One day we devised a syndicate. We then determined that the effort should be focused on a narrative and as the storyline progressed we let it evolve naturally with the group's dynamic.

"A spontaneous process driven by our collective efforts. As for the actual song, which like many of our songs, established itself as an instrumental; was inspired by our favorite Krautrock bands from the late sixties. That was before spending some time in rural Argentina. The lyrics began as rough scribbles, and in the attempt to characterize the broad landscape, which seemed to encompass most of the days spent there, a sort of comic relief broke out into lyric."

The ten-track offering was recorded by Johan Reivén and Olle Björck at Sweden's Welfare Sounds Studio, with additional recordings by Langfinger at Beduin HQ, mixing by Olle Björck, and mastering by Daniel Johansson.

The band comments: "'Crossyears' is not only honoring the music we listened to in our adolescence, but it's also the embodiment of our relentless attitude and eagerness to claim new musical ground. Our goal was not to promote an experimental journey, rather the opposite.

"The years of performing live and the countless hours rehearsing in our quarter provided us the opportunity to head straight for our indisputable roots, rip them up and make something loud out of it. This is our most authentic and straightforward record to date." More...
