A standstill is a term that does not exist for French art-rockers Klone. The albums ‘Here Comes The Sun’ and ‘Le Grand Voyage’ have demonstrated how capable the band was in deploying sublime aerial atmospheres and weaving hypnotic heavy sonic webs. Staying in their comfort zone would have been too easy.
On the new album ‘Meanwhile’, released on February 10th 2023, Klone has once again broken new sonic ground and built further on their expansive signature sound. An album with sprawling textures, huge guitars and beautiful melodies. Recorded in February 2022 with producer Chris Edrich(TesseracT, Leprous, The OceanCollective), Meanwhilechronicles the best and worst aspects of humanity. Vocalist Yann Ligner’s high-concept and oftentimes meta lyrics paint a picture of events taking place at the same time but in different places, while he muses about choices that are made against our will that can change the course of our common history – resulting in some poignant reflections about today’s world.
Over the years, also on the live front, Klone has gone to new heights across the globe. Touring in the past with bands like Devin Townsend recently alongside the likesofLeprousandPain of Salvation, and blowing away festival crowdsatHellfest, Motocultor, Prog PowerUSA, Midsummer Prog, andCruise to the Edge.
For 2023 and beyond, many new plans are made and the band is fully ready for the next big step in their career!
