UFOMAMMUT SHARE VIDEO OF XX ACOUSTIC LIVE SET AHEAD OF EUROPEAN DATES
BAND TO COMMEMORATE THEIR 20TH ANNIVERSARY WITH A SPECIAL BOXED SET INCOMING THIS SEPTEMBER
Italy’s mind-altering trio Ufomammut have this week revealed a live video, performing some of their most revered tracks spanning their two decades in existence in an intimate acoustic setting. Acoustic renditions of familiar Ufomammut songs can be heard on XX, a special new recording contained within the recently announced boxed set due for release on Supernatural Cat this September, more info and further live dates below. The film by Andreas Weimann of the XX live performance video was captured at the band’s show on April 5th, 2019 at Gaswerk in Winterthur, Switzerland.
The band comment, “we thought it would be great to celebrate our 20 years as a band with something different. We wanted to collect all our music in one single place but also wanted to do something that we have never done before. We decided to play a different version of some of our songs, and from these experimentations, an “acoustic side” emerged. We’re very proud of the result. It was amazing to share these songs with all the people that are following us since the beginning. This is a gift for all of them and also a chance for us to reflect positively on what we’ve been creating during these long 20 years.”
To be released on both CD and LP, the XX box set will feature nine Ufomammut albums, all individually housed in sleeves with exclusive cover artworks, created specifically for this release. The box sets will include all eight studio albums; Godlike Snake, Snailking, Lucifer Song, Idolum, Eve, Oro, Ecate, and 8.
Additionally, the box will include a new release, titled XX. This new recording features six revisited tracks – “Satan,” “Plouton,” “Lacrimosa,” “Infearnatural,” “Mars,” and “Destroyer – which were re-recorded during the band’s recent European tour.
These special box sets will also include a 64-page book with original covers, photos, and lyrics to all songs with an additional poster, backpatch, and sticker.
On XX Poia performs on acoustic guitar and effects, with Urlo handling vocals, synth, and effects, and Vita on drums and percussion. Ciccio and Stefano Tocci handle sound production and recording. The sound was mixed by Stefano Tocci at Ampire Studio and mastered by Luca Piazza at Zen Garden Studio.
The XX boxed set shall be released on September 9th through Ufomammut’s own Supernatural Cat Records.
