One of the most influential progressive rock bands from Sweden will release a new studio album on March 14th.!
Following the album trilogy that Trettioåriga Kriget (translates as The Thirty Years War) released between 2004 and 2011, and which formed the band’s autobiography, Seaside Air (2016) is a relaxed, self-assured album. It has a pronounced pop/rock feel to it, as if these Swedish masters of progressive music have finally allowed themselves to indulge in their childhood’s love of the Beatles. The songs are very strong, melodic and immediately accessible without losing the depth and complexity for which the band is so well known.
Seaside Air (2016) is a phrase that could refer to the famously invigorating atmosphere of the band’s native Saltsjöbaden, but it could also mean “a melody by the sea”, full of light and colour. A very warm sound permeates this new album from Trettioåriga Kriget, an album in which the band reinvents itself once again, and creates great new music by looking back on its history.
The album is out on March 14th; pre-order the album now and get a download code for a free bonus track 'Twilight'. The album will be housed in a beautiful digipack with artwork designed by Johan Gullberg.
