Info submitted by Pluswelt Promotion.[ 21.09.2006 ] - «Divided States Of America» - new Laibach DVD
|«Divided States Of America»|
Laibach conducted their first tour of North America in 1989, two years before the disintegration of their mother country, Yugoslavia. It was called Sympathy for the Devil Tour. The following two extensive tours happened in 1992 and in 1997.
Then came the attack on WTC, the avenging wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, and the universal offensive against terrorism, events which radically marked the new millennium - but also tightened the doors to the USA for many foreigners. Despite that, in election year 2004, in a tensely divided atmosphere between President Bush and Democratic candidate Kerry, Laibach successfully slipped again into the country to carry out their latest 15-concert North American Tour. The first stop was in Washington, D.C., only a gunshot from the White House and only one day after the election results had been announced. In the air was a feeling of uneasiness, dark clouds covered the sky and rain fell all day...
This film is a unique document of the Laibach tour, set during the traumatic post-election atmosphere in the USA, a country deeply divided by two opposite political and cultural poles. The tour has been therefore named The Divided States of America Tour.Laibach: Divided States Of America (DVD)

|«Nuages Du Monde»|
Back with their 5th full length album release via Nettwerk, «Nuages Du Monde» («Clouds Of The World») continues the evolution of Delerium from creators of mainly instrumental filmic soundscapes to a fully-fledged vocal group. The album neatly combines the commercial pop of 2003’s «Chimera» with the lush sensual ambience, synthetic textures and cloistered harmonies of 1997’s «Karma», a meld that bridges the gap between world music, new age electronics and modern classical.
«Nuages Du Monde» includes vocal performances from two collaborators new to Delerium: the renowned soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian («Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers», «The Marriage Of Figaro» w/Bryn Terfel at London Royal Opera House and New York Metropolitan Opera), and the Punjabi singer Kiran Ahluwalia. The album also includes performances from regular vocal cohorts Zoe Johnston (Faithless), Kirsty Hawkshaw (Tiésto, BT, Orbital, etc), Katherine Blake, Mediaeval Baebes, Kristy Thirsk and Jaél.Tracklisting:
Album will be released on October 2nd, 2006 via via Nettwerk. European version will have slightly different cover:
