Germany-based collective Art Against Agony has released their new EP titled Russian Tales on July 22nd, available from Bandcamp (digital download) and Bigcartel (CD). The EP was composed during the group’s first Russian tour in Winter 2016, where the band travelled through Russia for 3 weeks, playing 20 shows from Saint Petersburg to Rostov-on-Don and from Kemerovo to Bryansk.
Art Against Agony have partnered with Pitcam.TV for a premiere of a video for the song “Coffee for the Queen.” See it below.
The band commented: “The song retell our impressions of the snowy Siberian tundra, endless dark forests south of Moscow or grassy plaines next to river Volga. The five tales on the EP share our emotions, our fears, our love, our anxiety and our pleasures while touring.”
Along with the launch of a new video, Art Against Agony are heading on tour billed as “Against All Odds Tour 2017” which will see them promote the new EP in Russia and Brazil. See below for dates.
