ALCEST – La lumière autant que l’ombre

Today, ALCEST release their 6th studio album and Nuclear Blast debut ‘Spiritual Instinct’ upon the world. To celebrate, the band has unveiled a studio documentary titled ‘La lumière autant que l’ombre,’ accompanied with the acoustic instrumental version of their new track ‘Protection,’ which was recorded by Neige and can also be found exclusively as a bonus track on select versions of the album.

Frontman Neige states, “We are happy to release ‘La lumière autant que l’ombre,’ the making-of ‘Spiritual Instinct,’ filmed by the talented William Lacalmontie. William spent a lot of time with Benoît Roux and the band at Drudenhaus Studio in order to capture our moods, as well as glimpses from the long journey that was this recording process. Hope you guys will enjoy it.”

Recorded at French Drudenhaus Studio with Benoît Roux and written in bursts both during and after a prolonged period of touring in support of 2016’s hugely successful ‘Kodama,’ the new and very cathartic album is leading the blackgaze pioneers into dark soundscapes. The artwork was once again designed by Førtifem.

To round off 2019, ALCEST will be playing a string of festival dates, before embarking on their recently announced, 28-date headline tour in support of ‘Spiritual Instinct’ in February/March 2020, with support coming from BIRDS IN ROW and KÆLAN MIKLA. In addition, the first festival appearances for next year have already been confirmed. All dates can be found below!
