News of the upcoming live album from French atmospheric rockers Klone.
Eighteen months ago, Klone released their Le Grand Voyage album (our review). An album where the band talked about their music resonating in the cosmos, the upcoming live release – Alive – provides a quality round-up of their career so far.
The French atmospheric rockers 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 is releasing a live album. The album was recorded between two different shows at Sjiwa in Baarlo, The Netherlands in October 2016 and at Moloco in Audincourt, France in November 2019 respectively. It 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 describes 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 album is a timely reminder of what a superb live band Klone is. It features recordings that 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.
