ALCEST Unveil studio documentary 'La lumière autant que l'ombre' + new album 'Spiritual Instinct' out now




ALCEST release their 6th studio album and Nuclear Blast debut 'Spiritual Instinct' upon the world. To celebrate, the band has unveiled a studio documentary titled 'La lumière autant que l'ombre,' accompanied with the acoustic instrumental version of their new track 'Protection,' which was recorded by Neige and can also be found exclusively as a bonus track on select versions of the album. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3xF4YZeV6k

Frontman Neige states, "We are happy to release 'La lumière autant que l'ombre,' the making-of 'Spiritual Instinct,' filmed by the talented William Lacalmontie. William spent a lot of time with Benoît Roux and the band at Drudenhaus Studio in order to capture our moods, as well as glimpses from the long journey that was this recording process. Hope you guys will enjoy it."

Recorded at French Drudenhaus Studio with Benoît Roux and written in bursts both during and after a prolonged period of touring in support of 2016's hugely successful 'Kodama,' the new and very cathartic album is leading the blackgaze pioneers into dark soundscapes. The artwork was once again designed by Førtifem.
