Alcest 2017 China Tour

Alcest 2017 China Tour

New Noise couldn’t be more excited to invite French blackgazers Alcest back to China to present their new masterpiece “Kodama”.

Alcest has been widely praised for innovating metal music by adding translucent acoustic guitars, sky-shaking thunderheads of distortion, and tender, wispy harmonies. Their upcoming fifth album by Alcest marks the French duo's ferocious return to the epic and contrasted style of its early works while continuing the band's relentless pursuit for fresh ideas. Combining poetic elements with darker ones, that were not present in Alcest’s earlier works, “Kodama” manifests as an intense album, featuring a more organic, punchy sound and showcasing impulses from an array of different places.

Originally triggered by Hayao Miyazaki's anime film "Princess Mononoke", "Kodama" picks up on the fate of its protagonist and, at its core, deals with the sensation of not belonging; of living in between worlds, be it city and nature, the physical and spiritual one. By giving the album a cultural, stylistic and compositional narrative, Neige and Winterhalter keep "Kodama" from just being the latest improvement on the Alcest sound and instead make the album a most rare and exciting thing: a vital, relevant record from a front runner that not only upholds the band's trailblazing legacy, but actually makes you want to see where they go next. This artfully crafted album brings back the band's darker mystique from their earlier work. It is cinematic in its execution and wildly imaginative throughout its entirety.

Over the years, Alcest influenced a lot of other artists and gained a significant popularity around the world, leading them to do sold out tours all over Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Australia. This time Alcest will return to China and play 8 cities across the whole country to show that their music is from another world, a world that is real, but that exists beyond ours and cannot be grasped by our senses. A world where the soul knows neither pain nor sickness nor sorrow, but is filled with a deep peace and an ineffable bliss.
