Amon Düül II releases new studio album after 20 years & re-release several albums in LP format.
As thrilling as these re-releases are, what’s more exciting is the long awaited return of this German outfit after a nearly 20-year absence from the music world with a new album, Düülirium (2014)! This new album features 3 of the group’s founding members – guitarist John Weinzierl, guitarist/violinist Chris Karrer, and vocalist Renate Knaup – and will be simultaneously released on both CD and vinyl on June 10.
“Amon Düül never used to present the same style on their albums,” explains guitarist John Weinzierl. “We like to develop our music into all kinds of directions and sometimes we don’t even know where it’s gonna lead us. We don’t follow a pattern only because it is successful. Since 2000 we’ve used lots of elements of world music, we had eastern influences, ethnological sounds, and of course we never forgot ‘sound painting’.” When asked if there was a concept behind this new album, Weinzierl expounded, “Avoiding industry music, heading for new frontiers.”
1. On The Highway (Mambo La Liberta)
2. Du Kommst Ins Heim
3. Standing In The Shadow
4. Back To The Rules / Walking To The Park
Düülirium (2014) will be available at all fine music stores, including iTunes, starting June 10.
