GAZPACHO & SE DELAN UK DATES IN APRIL
Following the release of their latest, strangest and most complicated album, ‘Demon’ in March 2014, Norway’s Gazpacho will perform two shows in the UK this month.
Joining the band on both nights in London and in Leamington Spa will be newly formed duo and Kscope label mates Se Delan. Made up of Justin Greaves, the multi-instrumentalist leader of Crippled Black Phoenix, and Belinda Kordic on vocals, a Swedish singer who previously recorded as Killing Mood, these will mark the first ever live dates for the pair.
Gazpacho’s album is inspired by a manuscript from the Strahov Library featuring the crazed writings of an unknown writer. Whether the manuscript is truly the work of an obsessed madman or an urban legend it has certainly provided the basis for an interesting twist on a concept album. Classic Rock Prog Magazine praised the album for the ‘wonderful nightmares it’ll give you’ while the appropriately named Bizarre Magazine called ‘Demon’ a ‘delicate, off-kilter rock opera’.
Check out the brand new video made by Gazpacho for the single ‘The Wizard Of Altai Mountains’ here:
Se Delan’s debut set for release on 14th April, is the sound of a musician experimenting outside the constraints of his main band, while at times also stripping everything back for a more minimal and raw approach to song-writing. Noisey who featured the band earlier this year described the album track, ‘Dirge’ as a, ‘haunting piece that gets in your head and won’t go away’.
Finally the Kscope sponsored, London line-up has been boosted with the addition of The Pineapple Thief’s very own Bruce Soord and Jon Sykes who are taking some time out from recording the latest TPT album which will be released later this UK.
