We’re pleased to bring the premiere of Flares‘ brand new album, Allegorhythms, produced by keyboardist Mike Balzer and due to be released this Friday (September 28th) via German indie label Barhill Records.
Stream Allegorhythms in full below.
The band says about their new album: “In our minds, ‘Allegorhythms’ is the creative peak of four years intense songwriting. We always try to evolve as a band. So we took all our love to early and current Prog-stuff, Shoegaze and Post-rock and mixed it with our idea of music. We geared up with some new instruments, used different tunings and even experimented with old tape machines to find out, what fits the songs best.
When the recording process was finished, we had the idea that it would be cool to give the mastering-process to an artist we all like and respect. So we asked Magnus Lindberg from Cult Of Luna if he’s interested in doing the mastering and his first words we’re: “Yeah, i’m interested, sounds good and well recorded”. So we were stoked and he did an amazing job.
In the next steps we worked together with our friends Muriel and Manuel from MM,M for the artwork and they just nailed it. We’re all so proud of the final result. We love the outcome of the whole process, the mastering, the artwork and we’re so thankful to Kai from Barhill Records for putting much love and work in this and other releases. So we hope all the music-loving people out there can enjoy ‘Allegorhythms’ as much as we can.”
