Acclaimed Chilean prog rockers AISLES are delighted to announce their highly anticipated new album Hawaii, due July 29 via Presagio Records. The two-disc concept LP, the band’s fourth studio album, will be available on both CD and digitally, with the vinyl edition due in November.
Hawaii is a two-disc concept album about human colonies in space after the destruction of the Earth. Its twelve tracks explore the dilemmas and challenges that the individual and the human spirit would face in such a scenario. Regarding the concept and sound of the album, guitarist and producer Germán Vergara explains: “Without a doubt it’s our most profound work so far. With Hawaii we dug deep in search of a concept that could really move us. Our objective was to write music that would emotionally and mentally take us to the place where the events in the album occur: Space”.
“All the music on the album was written with our hearts and minds set on the idea of these human colonies, a small group of people who are able to preserve some of the heritage of mankind after the Earth is destroyed. Musically speaking we had never taken so many risks, tried so many different approaches and allowed ourselves this level of freedom to improvise and experiment. I am really proud of what we’ve achieved this time”.
A shining example of prog rock’s universal reach, the Chilean band, formed 15 years ago, have a long and illustrious history. Previously nominated in the Italian Prog Awards, the band are the only South American band to be invited to France’s Crescendo Festival de Rock Progressif.
