THE LOW FREQUENCY IN STEREO Sign Worldwide Recording Deal with Long Branch Records/SPV


THE LOW FREQUENCY IN STEREO Sign Worldwide Recording Deal with Long Branch Records/SPVNorwegian independent band The Low Frequency In Stereo have signed a worldwide recording deal with Long Branch Records/SPV. The yet untitled album is set to be released in Fall 2013.

Manuel Schönfeld, A&R Long Branch Records/SPV: “I’m excited to work with The Low Frequency In Stereo. Their unique sound and the constant musical development have led them to be one of today’s most innovative Scandinavian rock bands.”

Praised by the likes of David Fricke (Rolling Stone Magazine) and Michael Stipe (R.E.M) The Low Frequency In Stereo follow up their artistic triumph of the last album Futuro. The fifth incarnation of the band manifests the second consecutive collaboration with Norwegian producer Jørgen Træen (Motorpsycho, Jaga Jazzist, Kaizers Orchestra).

“We feel ready to make our new ‘debut’ and are aiming at making a masterpiece of a record. The vibe’s good and the rehearsals have never been as explosive and creative as they are now”, says bassist and spokesperson in the band – Per Steinar Lie.

Founded in 2001 in Haugesund on the westcoast of Norway the band has been called the band with one foot in Pompeii and one in space. They have developed from being a searching instrumental lo-fi-post-rock band that Pitchfork dubbed “Psych-Garage Dronemeisters” to a fullblown, focused and fresh sounding rock ensemble with great songs and a mix of dark atmospheres and catchy choruses.

“The music is a mixture of the long solo elements in ‘the Doors’, set to the raptide of Joy Division`s ‘transmission’ with the surf guitar twang of Dick Dale. They are the Coolest Rulers from Scandinavia!” David Fricke, Rolling Stone Magazine
