French atmospheric rockers Klone have built their name on making music that’s as deeply introspective as it is sonically powerful. Known for their trademark dark guitar tones and epic brooding soundscapes, the band signed with Kscope in 2019 before releasing their first album with the label, Le Grand Voyage, that same year to critical praise.
Now, for the first time in the band's career, Klone are releasing a live album. Recorded between two different shows at Sjiwa in Baarlo, The Netherlands in October 2016 and at Moloco in Audincourt, France in November 2019 respectively, Alive captures the true essence of Klone and includes stunning performances of the singles `Yonder' and 'Breach’.
Engineered by the band’s live sound engineer Chris Edrich and Mastered by Pierrick Noel, the band describe the moment as “a way to pay tribute to our audience and the people who support us.”
As we await live music to return on a large scale, this is a timely reminder of what a superb live band Klone are. Featuring recordings which represent the band’s most popular material whilst giving testimony to the shows recorded during the period between 2015’s Here Comes The Sun and 2020’s Le Grand Voyage.
Alive will be released on CD, digitally, black vinyl LP and a limited edition silver vinyl LP on 11th June 2021.
'Le Grand Voyage'
Kscope are extremely proud to bring in French art rock band Klone to the label. Known for their trademark dark guitar tones and epic brooding soundscapes, have released their new studio album Le Grand Voyage.
Guillaume Bernard, Klone’s guitarist, enthuses “We are honoured to join their family, which has included releases from prestigious artists such as Anathema, The Pineapple Thief, TesseracT, Steven Wilson, Katatonia, Ulver etc. This is the ideal label for Klone and we are excited to work with this new team!
“After an acoustic break we are back with an electric album that has been 3 years in the making. The album invites you to explore the different landscapes of our music; dark, luminous, heavy and powerful. The mixing by Francis Castes from the Sainte Marthe studio in Paris has created a sound both massive and airy.”
Kscope’s Johnny Wilks “As we’ve seen in recent years France has a rich culture of exciting and original artists and Klone are a perfect example of musicians creating music that has artistic integrity whilst also having great commercial potential. We’re looking forward to working with the band on their new album both in the UK and globally.”
