WHISPERS IN THE SHADOW - Working On New Album, Started Crowdfunding Campaign

Austrian dark/goth rock masters Whispers In The Shadow announced that their new, already the 10th full-length album entitled Yesterday Is Forever, will be released at the end of October via Solar Lodge. At this very moment the band is finishing the production on it. On the new album Whispers In The Shadow are looking for new ways to express themselves and expand their ever evolving musical cosmology.

Yesterday Is Forever, a successor to in 2018 released The Urgency Of Now, is a kaleidoscopic tour de force through diverse moods and styles some of them unheard in the bands 24 year history. Once again Whispers In The Shadow prove they are far from repeating the same thing over and over again.

The lyrical themes range from the unhealthy obsession with the past, namely Nostalgia, through the utterly stupidity of war, to the toxic behavior with each other in this time and age. It's the search for the I in the void by walking on the mirror and leaving the Toxic Express once and for all. They ask questions but of course deny to give answers.

"The musical range of this album goes from 12 string acoustic guitar lead post punk tunes like "Toxic Express" or "Passion Project" to ambitious dark folk meets chamber orchestra anthems, like the hazy, somewhat rural and psychedelic sounding "Walk On The Mirror" or the dystopian but at the same time also strangely cozy "The Futurist". And with tracks like "Forever 1985" or "The Horror" we prove that electric guitars can still sound unsettling and dangerous in 2020. Whereas "Adrift" might be the closest they we came to the lost art of the 3min+ Pop Song. Pop Song? You might ask with a raised brown? Well, it wouldn't be Whispers In The Shadow if there wouldn't be a dark twist lurking somewhere in the corner, wouldn't it? Just pay attention", Ashley Dayour comments. "It's a diverse beast. Every song a different world and as a whole a different universe. And without the shadow of a doubt the biggest step for this band in a long time. The detailed music production accompanied by a visually striking album artwork by Spanish artist Billyphobia make sure of it."

Whispers In The Shadow recently started the crowdfunding campaign at Kickstarter platform for making this album, and you can help them out to reach the goal and get some exclusive items at this location. The first album teaser has also been released and you can check it in the player below. Link
