LAIBACH release a brand new album, “SPECTRE”, on CD, vinyl and download on March 11th, 2014. Watch the new SPECTRE trailer featuring The Whistleblowers, the optimistically catchy whistle-along track, alluding to the heroism of the new “digital” Prometheans of freedom here:
SPECTRE’s release will be followed by a European and Asian tour, including dates at KOKO in London as well as the band’s first foray into China. Please check the band’s website for a full list of tour dates here.
Laibach has once again ‘re-invented’ itself in a newly born, yet polished and solid, formation. And, as is now customary, Laibach calls into question all the rigid and cemented interpretations (and prejudices) about itself, about its music, intentions, philosophy and ideology. Laibach are masters of escape, true escape artists. And yet, despite everything, SPECTRE resonates as a real and full-blooded Laibachian work and nothing else.
With SPECTRE, Laibach has created a big, important, and almost dangerous step forward; it seems that this time it has fatally crossed the Rubicon. On this album the group – which has never defined itself politically, but has constantly analyzed politics through its work – comes across as politically engaged as never before. SPECTRE literally sounds like a political manifesto manifest in poetic form. Titles and lyrics couldn’t be more direct. With these lyrics and songs, Laibach, who has always given a controversial impression – or an impression of controversy – especially in terms of its political orientation, is now very clearly taking a position on the political spectrum and probably irreversibly abolishing its own (to some extent quite comfortable) political ‘freedom’ and neutrality.
