SOLD OUT

Art rock band Lesoir made a virtue of necessity in the quiet but turbulent lockdown period and in 2020 started working on something that would then become an 'interim project' for the band. Recorded at various locations in South Limburg (NL), the resulting 20-minute and 20-second epic grew into a full-fledged addition to the band's already existing repertoire. 

Under the name Babel, Lesoir presents its first epic, a 20 minutes and 20 seconds journey on which the band shows itself from its most melodic side, deepening the sound of their previous album Mosaic and mastering their creativity. 

Babel sketches the experience of the disaster year 2020, in which nature takes back what has been taken from her through pandemics, forest fires and floods. Using the story of the Tower of Babel as a metaphor, a powerful epic emerges from a fragile song, after which the atmosphere changes and escalates into a musical explosion.

Lesoir's creation will be released on vinyl, handmade and limited to only 250 pcs. Each piece is numbered and on request signed by the band.

Online, the release will be supported by an animated video made by Crystal Spotlight (known for their work with Steven Wilson and Gazpacho, among others) and the band will release a live video of their exclusive Babel performance, recorded last summer.
