The Sludgelord News: KLONE SIGN TO PELAGIC RECORDS / ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM 'HERE COMES THE SUN’


Released 27th April through Pelagic Records.

12 years after their debut release, KLONE, hailing from France, are back with their 6th studio album: “Here Comes The Sun”.

“Here Comes The Sun”, reveals a mature rock band whose musical universe has expanded and developed over the years. When taking a look at the band’s discography, their progress appears like a logical evolution: each album unique, and each served to make the follow-up less predictable.

The band's metal roots have slowly but confidently given way to an ethereal rock sound, vintage but modern, delivered by heavy riffs, delay-soaked guitar-reverb and soft vocal melodies. Nowadays while melancholy is the defining paradigm of the band's sound, KLONE go on to exploit a much broader emotional spectrum.

2012's The Dreamer’s Hideaway already showed more progressive outlines. This time, the band gives each melody time to unfold... and this is where the strength of this album lies: coherence, patience, and continuity. The transitions between riffs and songs never feel rushed or forced -- everything is happening at the right time, and for a reason. The music, the lyrics and the artwork reflect upon one another, and suck the listener into a universe revolving around the sun, which is the central theme of the album.

KLONE have opened for bands like Gojira, King’s X and Orphaned Land, and have played the main stage at Hellfest. With "Here Comes The Sun", the band's song writing, led by the charismatic voice of Yann Ligner, has reached the next level. All of this combined "Here Comes The Sun" is the album that will see KLONE thrust into the limelight.

Press:
“Monster riffs crush down throughout like hulking slabs of concrete and a thunderous rhythm section with lightning forks of melody melds well with the angry yet highly accessible vocals from Yann Ligner.” – Terrorizer

“The intelligent construction of those ambient walls of noise and the way the band makes playing progressively arranged songs sound positively loose and carefree.” Metal Hammer
