[ 21.09.2006 ] - «Divided States Of America» - new Laibach DVD

«Divided States Of America»
«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.

[ 15.09.2006 ] - New album from Delerium

«Nuages Du Monde»
«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 2003s «Chimera» with the lush sensual ambience, synthetic textures and cloistered harmonies of 1997s «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.

Cult electronic heros Laibach announced brand new album release, «Volk». The follow up to 2003's «WAT», the album will be released on October 23rd via Mute/EMI.

«Volk» is a collection of interpretations of national anthems and includes the national anthem for NSK, the State in time without territory and national boundaries which Laibach have been linked with since its formation in 1984. The opening track, «Germania» uses «Das Lied der Deutschen», originally written in 1797 and used after World War I as the national anthem of the German Empire at the time of the Weimar Republic, and reinterprets it while the single, «Anglia», uses John Bull's «God Save The Queen» as its inspiration. The tracks are mostly sung in English and each anthem has a guest singer, often singing in their native language. Other national anthems included come from the USA, Russia, Italy, Spain, Israel, Turkey, China, Japan, Slovenia and the Vatican. The album will come as Limited Edition in hardback book format with watercolour artwork by Laibach as well as full sleeve notes explaining each track.
