FRENCH ART ROCK ACT KLONE SIGN TO KSCOPE
REVEAL DETAILS OF FORTHCOMING NEW STUDIO ALBUM
Kscope are extremely proud to announce that French at rock band KLONE have signed to the label and are set to release their first studio album for the label in September 2019.
Klone, known for their trademark dark guitar tones and epic brooding soundscapes, have revealed their new studio album is to be titled Le Grand Voyage, and is the follow up to 2015’s studio album Here Comes The Sun.
Guillaume Bernard, Klone’s guitarist, enthuses “We are honoured to join their family, which has included releases from prestigious artists such as Anathema, The Pineapple Thief, TesseracT, Steven Wilson, Katatonia, Ulver etc. This is the ideal label for Klone and we are excited to work with this new team!”
Kscope’s Johnny Wilks “As we’ve seen in recent years France has a rich culture of exciting and original artists and Klone are a perfect example of musicians creating music that has artistic integrity whilst also having great commercial potential. We’re looking forward to working with the band on their new album both in the UK and globally.”
With fans eagerly awaiting news of the new studio album Bernard hints at what they can expect
“After an acoustic break we are back with an electric album that has been 3 years in the making. The album invites you to explore the different landscapes of our music; dark, luminous, heavy and powerful. The mixing by Francis Castes from the Sainte Marthe studio in Paris has created a sound both massive and airy.”
Klone have been confirmed to appear at festivals over the summer months before they begin their Le Grand Voyage live campaign with a headline tour, details of which will be announced soon.
