Hard times call for big riffs. And, it seems, also for big news.
Not only was Motorpsycho’s 2020 album “The All is One” nominated for a Spellemannprisen (a Norwegian Grammy) in the Best Rock Album category, but we’re also thrilled to announce a new Motorpsycho album in the wings titled Kingdom of Oblivion!
Release date has been slated for April 16th, 2021. The album will be available on 2LP, CD and digitally.
Presale is scheduled to start on Friday, March 5th at 11:00 am CET.
From Motorpsycho’s own blog (15 February 2021):
It is clear to us that TAIO reached a pretty wide audience, and we are as grateful as ever for all of you taking the time to listen to what we do. It is really imporant to us to not become an oldies band merely dealing in nostalgia, and the only way we can avoid that is by forging ahead and trying to make music that is true to who we are. When you lot show your appreciation by buying the new records and not just baying for the old schlägers, that makes it all feel worthwhile and important, and that is all we can ask. Thank you!
On that subject … we have a new record coming out in a couple of months!
It is called Kingdom of Oblivion. The cover is by Sverre Malling and looks like this [see above].
The first ‘digital single’ – Pt.1 of the song The Waning – should be available online in a matter of weeks at the most, so you’ll get a taste of what it is pretty soon.
