What started as a series DIY laptop recording sessions in a busy London share house …
Enigmatic psych-prog rock group AlithiA have released a second single from their new album The Moon has Fallen.
The hypnotic track burns with the melancholic riffs and beats AlithiA are known for. The 6-piece is set to bring their unusual sound to the UK and Europe as support for Norwegian avant-garde rock band Shining in November 2018. The Moon has Fallen is due out 26th October from Wild Thing Records.
Lead singer John Rousvanis described the track as “The influences of life’s circumstances on the individual and the journey one may wish to take.”
“It encompasses the many states of mind consciously/unconscious, in dream states, being aware of it all at once, while at the same time losing all rationality, faith, hope, and falling into internal collapse and despair.”
Recorded in Athens, Greece, AlithiA has sent The Moon has Fallen on a deep dive into psychedelic post-prog rock, drowning in synth blasts and powerful percussion. AlithiA consists of John Rousvanis on lead vocals and lead guitar, Nguyen Phambam on guitar, percussionist Jeffrey Raul Ortiz Castro, bassist Tibor Gede, drummer Mark Vella and keyboard player Danny Constantino.
Founded by Rousvanis in 2004, the band has come to fame for their mesmerising, tribal flavoured live shows. Two experimental EPs in 2009 and 2011 paved the way for their debut album To the Edge of Time, which led to a tour with The Music and begin work on their latest album
AlithiA’s The Moon has Fallen is available for pre-order here and will see its release into the world on Friday October 26th. AlithiA will embark on their European tour on November 4th.
