Subsignal Debut Video For "Even Though The Stars Don't Shine"

New Album "La Muerta" Out May 25thvia Gentle Art of Music

 

 It took  Subsignal  a good two years, but now they are finally back and ready to release their new album  "La Muerta."  On it, as to be expected with the former Sieges Even duo Markus Steffen and Arno Menses, the German band sends the listener on a proper voyage of discovery that is as complex as it is eventful. Subsignal have consciously designed the path to  "La Muerta"  a tad more accessible than was the case with the predecessor...   "La Muerta" is set for release on May 25thvia  Gentle Art of Music .  Pre-order it  HERE .     Today the first video from the album for the song  "Even Though The Stars Don't Shine" .  Watch it  HERE .     Watch a trailer for  "La Muerta"   HERE .  It is the fundamental rule in  Subsignal : the band always resets the focus and overhauls the pressure points from album to album. That is why in the run-up to  "La Muerta"  the German outfit did not only sign a new record deal with Gentle Art of Music, but the five-piece also made a decision in favor of a modified approach in terms of the project's artistic priorities. While on earlier releases the band still lit up the literal torch to lead the audience's way through the tricky pathways of the delicately tangled progressive rock-undergrowth, this time, despite several hints of assistance here and there,  Subsignal  indeed put their trust in the power of the songwriting as well as the intuition of the listener. The band's signature energy is no less essential than ever before, but its unique presence has transformed and taken on a significantly more subtle role. The same goes for the technical sophistication of the musical implementation: it is still a driving force but it no longer lunges right into the listener's face. Much more it clandestinely sneaks up from the - only seemingly! - diffuse atmosphere to ultimately spread with all the force that fans and critics alike have praised.  The current lineup, consisting of Markus Steffen (guitar), Arno Menses (vocals), Ralf Schwager (bass), Markus Maichel (keyboards) and Dirk Brand (drums), has remained unchanged for quite some time and thus become a precisely harmonized team of perfection. It is obvious: the micro-adjustments of musical and mechanical aspects no longer required tending to. Much more "La Muerta"  showcases a well-oiled fellowship that passionately puts every last bit of energy into the macro-process of painting the big picture. A new album might always start out as a journey into the unknown, but there is not a shadow of a doubt: right from the beginning the minds behind  Subsignal  had a very clear idea of where  "La Muerta"  would take them and how they would get there.  Production duties were put into the hands of  RPWL's  Yogi Lang and Kalle Wallner. The duo has demonstrated great intuition and provided the songs with enough air to breathe and unfold - without restraining the fascinating density that adds another dimension to that multilayered voyage of discovery that is "La Muerta."  The paths have been marked, the supplies are packed. This is where the adventure starts - enjoy the ride!
