VOLA announce new album ‘Friend of a Phantom’ and single “Break My Lying Tongue”

The Danish-Swedish quartet VOLA – Asger Mygind (vocals/guitar), Martin Werner (keys), Nicolai Mogensen (bass), and Adam Janzi (drums) – are now set release their fourth studio album ‘Friend of a Phantom,’ due out on November 1st. Check out the video for the new single “Break My Lying Tongue” here:

It has been three years since the release of VOLA’s defining album, ‘Witness.’ It was a sonic assault that captured their signature blend of thoughtful labyrinthine narratives with crushing riffs and experimental sophistication. Heavy/quiet and dark/light were combined with elements of tech-metal, progressive alt-rock, electronica, and stadium-sized choruses.

Talking about their evolution, Janzi says. “We have had the time to internalise ‘Witness’ and let its aftermath sink in, which has shaped how we approached ‘Friend Of A Phantom.’ Our personal tastes have changed, the way we approach our instruments and songwriting has changed, our lives have changed, time has passed, and adventures have been had. Whatever piece of melancholy that ‘Witness’ had, has just grown and become a central part of this new album. I feel that VOLA has grown and reached a new moment in its life, maturing.”
