GAZPACHO SOYUZ Limited 180gram Heavyweight Audiophile Vinyl LP

Overview:
Norway’s creators of dark and elegant art rock release new album ‘Soyuz’. It joins a series of concept records that started with the critically acclaimed ‘Night’ in 2007. Soyuz’ will be presented as a CD in a mediabook packaging
complete with a 24-page booklet featuring extra artwork and lyrics, or on 180g heavyweight audiophile vinyl in a single packaging with a 4-page booklet and download code, which includes the bonus track “Rappaccini”.
“...but none match the distinctive and overwhelming eloquence, intensity, and seamlessness of Norwegian quintet Gazpacho. They truly put the “art” in art rock.” - Popmatters (USA)
A band who are used to seizing headlines with bizarre stories, including The Independent (UK) branding ‘Molok’ as “An album that could destroy the world”, Gazpacho have a holistic approach to the album writing process, imbuing each with a captivating concept. The songs of ‘Soyuz’ are a series of short interconnected stories of people frozen in time, with the tracks “Soyuz One” and “Soyuz Out” written about the first Russian Space capsule and its doomed captain, Komarov.
Known for their distinctive art rock that balances tense and beautiful arrangements, sinister and soulful melodic lines, Gazpacho’s ‘Soyuz’ furthers their experimental output. The album includes the singles “Soyuz One”, “Exit
Suite” and “Hypomania”. Recorded at Krypton Planet & St. Croix Fredrikstad in Norway, engineered by Thomas Andersen, Kristian Torp and Mikael Kroemer, mixed by John Rausch and mastered by Sonovo Mastering’s Thor Legvold. The artwork, designed by painter Antonio Seijas, is inspired by Russian Cold War colours and fonts from the Soyuz One flight era.
‘Gazpacho have announced their first tour in support of ‘Soyuz’, taking their new live performance to the UK and Europe from late May to early June, and have also been booked for Spain’s Be Prog! My Friend summer festival.
