Andorran metallers Persefone have today announced their new album, Aathma. The fifth album from this innovative and creative band is scheduled for released on the 24th February via ViciSolum productions. In conjuction with the album, the band has launched a crowd-funding campaign in order to finance the album. This can be viewed here.
The album will consist of 10 new songs and will be mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street. Once again, Travis Smith created the artwork for the new album.
Speaking on Aathma the band comments:
“It’s only once in every three, four years that we can express ourselves with freedom as musicians, by making music under the name of Persefone. Each album is a picture of our lives and the way we’re experiencing this journey. It’s the first time we feel there’s someone out there, waiting for the album and we are doing our best to make honest music that shows the spirit and essence of the band. It’s not about releasing albums. It’s all about the music.”
Aathma will be released on: CD, 12” double vinyl, digital download and limited edition digipack.
In support of this new album, the band will be embarking on their first headlining tour across Europe with Poem as direct support. [James: As someone who saw Persefone on their last tour, I can assure you that they are a band not to be missed!]
