When "Norway’s finest psychedelic-stoner-folk-band" Spirits of the Dead, released their eponymous debut album in 2008, few could have been more surprised than the band of the album's overwhelming reviews.
Crowned with a place in Classic Rock Magazine’s "The Best Albums of the Year", their second album ‘The Great God Pan’ somehow evoked a both retrospective and futuristic quality and made it clear that something was in the making. The band claimed they were "mixing the Sound of the Past with the Sound of the Future". Well...
Now it’s 2013, and Spirits of the Dead are about to raise the stakes. "Rumours of a Presence" digs deeper and goes to even more profound places than the band has ever been before. Recorded in remote districts of Norway, this grand record lingers on the big questions: Life, Death and the Sea. Well, to be honest...Death and the Sea, really.
Dom Lawson gives us an insight to the record in his liner notes, which can be read here.
Having just announced a European tour with Kadavar, the band looks forward to crossing the ocean to embark on a US tour later in the year.
