Casablanca Signs With Despotz To Release Lovecraftian Concept Album

Despotz Records just inked a deal with Swedish retro rock act, Casablanca, which will release "Miskatonic Graffiti" later this Summer.

Today the band has teamed up with PopMatters.com to stream the upcoming album's first single, "My Shadow out of Time." Give it a listen below.

The band commented: "First single from the Casablanca concept album 'Miskatonic Graffiti,' 'My Shadow out of Time' is about memories of loss on a cosmic scale - of those left on the other side, gone forever? It's about things left in the run, like shadows lost in time. Don't we all lose a few shadows, while making our way through life?"

"We are incredibly excited to present this new signing to the Despotz Family," said Carl-Marcus Gidlöf of Despotz Records. "We welcome Casablanca and look forward to a very fruitful cooperation.

"In the current climate in the industry, this concept album feels just right. This album offers a combination of sharp singles embedded with long intro and outro songs, and a story and sound that captivates the listener like a favorite TV series that you just don't want to end. Combining this with a huge passion and a great team, we see no limits on where we can take this."

The upcoming "Miskatonic Graffiti" is a concept album, broken into three sections, and based on the stories and events that take place in the small fictional town called "The Mountains." The band describes the concept as if "Ziggy Stardust met H. P. Lovecraft in Twin Peaks."
