Nemesea Comments On Upcoming Album

Nemesea has issued the following statement about a new version of the song "2012" appearing on the band's upcoming album "The Quiet Resistance:"

"Hey everybody, For those of you who have our live album 'Pure' live @ P3 know that Lasse wrote a song titled 2012. We are happy to announce that a newer (and longer) version of this spectacular song will be on TQR.

"Lasse commented: 'There are a lot of interesting theories about 2012. I've always been fascinated by this subject, so I read a lot about it. I don't know what will happen, but who knows… The song 2012 talks about this subject; December 21st 2012. You wake up and know something is about to happen. You can feel the anxiety and despair. And then…the Apocalypse. The world as we know it has come to an end. The songs ends with an unpleasant kind of peace.'

"You can find the version that's on the live album below.

"Next week we'll play in Eindhoven as special guest for Stream of Passion. It will be another TQR show with new songs on the setlist. Other than first announced the doors to this show will open at 20.00 hrs instead of 20.30hrs. Our show will start at 20.30hrs. So if you don't want to miss anything, please make sure to be on time! More news next week! So stay tuned!"

We know this band for a while now and have always liked the turntable parts in their music as well as the voice of Marcus.

Nemesea Comments On Upcoming Album

Nemesea recently revealed that the band's new album will be titled "The Quiet Resistance." The band has now checked in with the following update about the album:

"Last week we revealed the title of our upcoming album. Today HJ will tell you a little bit more about the meaning behind this title. After lot's of songwriting, recording and producing there comes that moment to choose an album title. After we finished the songs, especially the lyrics, we found there was a certain theme in almost all the songs.

"Can you recall that feeling when you don't agree with someone or something and you want to stand up and speak out but are afraid to do so? Whether this is within a group, at home, at school, during work. Whether it's about feelings, politics, human and animal rights, everybody experiences resistance at some point and it's often frustrating if it stays a quiet resistance. Often you wished that you'd spoken your mind or stood up afterwards. That is what the album is about, just say it like it is!"

"Guest appearances: we won't reveal any names today but we can tell you there will be one or even a few nice guest appearances on the new album. In a few weeks we will tell you more about that! More...
