News: Karmakanic Announce New Album 'DOT'

Karmakanic announce new album details.

Sweden-based Progressive band Karmakanic have announced the release of their fifth album 'DOT' for the 22nd July 2016. The band, who originally formed in 2002, have returned with their first studio album since 2011's 'In A Perfect World' and the current line-up includes original members Jonas Reingold (The Flower Kings) and Göran Edman (Yngwie Malmsteen) plus Morgan Ågren (Casualties Of Cool, Frank Zappa, Steve Vai), Lalle Larsson (Agents Of Mercy, Nils Erikson & Krister Jonsson).

Jonas Reingold explains the themes from the album: "I got my inspiration to start writing DOT when I stumbled upon a text by the famous American author and astronomer Carl Sagan a while ago. He was talking about how small and insignificant we are in this vast universe. It's fascinating to think that this little dot is all we are and all we'll ever be. It gives us perspective. And I think perspective is a great tool for making good choices."

'DOT' also features a track co-written with Jonas' old buddy and colleague from The Tangent, Andy Tillison, and he also contributes Hammond organ on the epic track 'God, The Universe And Everything Else No One Really Cares About' which clocks in at nearly 30 minutes.

The artwork for the album was created by Hugh Syme, who has previously made covers for Rush, Aerosmith & Iron Maiden. The album will be available as a CD/DVD Digipak (featuring 'The Making Of DOT', Karmakanic Live In The US and Interviews), LP with CD & digital download.
