Summer is coming on strong and whatever bit of the world that still went to work ….will soon not.
No rest for the wicked though, and both we, our team and our record company friends are busy preparing the next Motorpsycho album for release!
This album is called The All Is One, and will be released on 2xLP, 2xCD as well as digitally through both Stickman Records and Rune Grammofon on August 28, 2020.
The cover art is once again by Håkon Gullvåg, and this time around is art painted esp for us!
It is a long album that features music from two sessions we did last year. The first session included our favourite Stockholmian Norwegian Reine Fiske, and took place in Black Box Studio in France in September. The second, featured two of our favourite Norwegian musicians, Ola Kvernberg and Lars Horntveth, and was a brief three day affair at Ocean Sound Studio on the Norwegian west coast in November.
At the center of this album is a long 5 part piece featuring some of the most radical stuff we’ve done on record in a while, but if the prospect of a 42minute piece for ballet inspired by paintings, alchemy and the tarot seems too daunting, there is also a handful of losely related shorter songs to get into. For us this is obviously just different views and tangents of the one thing, but you will all make of it what you will, and hopefully it will all make some sort of sense to you however deep you choose to go.
We guess the details – cover, song titles and whatnot – will be made public as summer moves along, so watch the various relevant spaces for relevant info and hang loose – it’ll be worth the wait, we promise!
My favorite season of the year: new Motorpsycho Album
YES! Nothing better than a new MP double LP!
awesome! looking forward to it =) long songs, shorter songs…that sounds great, I always like a bit of a mix in MP albums :)
Take my money already!! :)
There Is something better then a New MP double LP! (Only if it is a new MP triple LP!)
addendum: August may bring you bad weather, but it brings me good music as well!
Yay! Have $ will pre-order!
Is there any better news in this world than the announcement of a Motorpsycho-album?! No, there is most definitely not.
I’ll be clicking that pre-order-button at trusty Stickman pretty damn fast.
Love you guys and all Psychonauts out there!
Wonderful news in weird times. There is only one thing that would be even better than a new MP LP : a new MP LP AND new live dates. hopefully we will see you soon on the stages of this world again. <3
Whoohoo! This news just made my day!
2020 is saved!
2 LPs, 2Cds…preparing a great menu for us hungry fans!
That’s wonderful news. Really makes my day. Looking forward to it.
I feel better now…
fuck bob and neil. mp is coming ,-)
Yess……. i can’t wait. What a great news.
Fantastic news, countdown has started! And let’s hope we can also meet again in concert venues and enjoy the ride before 2020 comes to an end!
fukkkkkkkk fuckkkkk or fucccc!!!! this is sooooo great news!!! i can’t await see you playing alive again!!! very exciting…….thx MP and all the psychos as well!!!!
Hurrah! The cover painting looks great, and the music…we all know it will be fantastisk !
If this doesn’t kill covid, nothin will ! Best news so far this year !
Great news. Really looking forward to this. Thanks for never slowing down the MP train.
Det ser jag fram emot mycket. 2020 är räddat.
This news has made 2020 significantly more bearable. Thank you!
Will this have an epic in it? That’s all I wanna know. Pretty much excited about this too! I guarantee that it’s gonna be better than both The Tower and The crucible at least….
Continuing this certain post in consideration…
Maybe might as well listen to all of your epics as an “epic countdown” before this gets released.
Nei, jeg tør ikke.
I have decided to listen to this record. I hope it is something you can all live on through these difficult times.
Great news!! Take care
How late will the pre-order start?
Can’t wait here in America!! Hope to see you guys someday!!!
Have to say as far as I’m concerned msycho have been declining year after year after year. Somewhere along the way they lost their heavy vibe as seen on cuts from TM and DB and went way too dippy shitty goofball progfolk nonsense. Shame I loved this band up to Heavy Metal Fruit then forget it. Have zero expectations that the newbie will be anything more than a studio wankfest.
Yeah! I am very very excited about it!
Well the lead cut were all playing has a pulse, some get’up’n go, sincerely hope it’s not the only one. Though I slagged off the Tower it’s grown on me a tad since…..anyways I shall be forking out for this double as I have for all their stuff.
The guys have conformed to the norms of society and become slicker, but that’s what happens to 99% in their forties. Especially if they have kids. It takes some of the edge out of it. They’re still worth listening to I think.
Hu Bente med bassen, Ryanja Røverdatter og ThomASS Järmyr. Det største siden Frankie Goes to Hollywood, eller kanskje the Village People.
Helt enig med Mongo. Før i tiden ble de med Ausberger kalt snålinger eller noe sånt. I den moderne verden blir de med varige men beskyttet og satt til å gjøre noe. År etter år. MP har ikke gitt ut noe bra siden Let them eat cake. Jeg anbefaler Bent og Snah å finne noe mer givendes å drive med. Det er over. MP er utrolig kjedelig, helt uinteressant. Og det at Bent leser seg opp på tema etter tema for så å bruke denne **kunnskapen** i nytt MP materiale, det blir bare dumt. Sisyphus-billen er mere vært enn dere. Svært mange av de som skriver her, på engelsk, er norske. Det blir ekstra dumt. Finn noe å jobbe med som ikke har strenger. Og det at dere spiller i Nidarosdomen er direkte provoserende. Det er Guds hus.
Se og Hør blir neste.
I love you so much, I wan’t you to quit.
Petter Northug har alltid vært og er en dust.
Motorpsycho vant jo noen musikkpriser. Jeg tror ikke de hadde klart det uten anabole steroider eller kokain. Du må være en atlet for å vinne.
Amazing album! Thanks!
Sliding off the pop-charts! Apropos: Kordan går det med strøinga i krysset Gregus gt. – Strandveien?
