Die Norwegische Avantgarde-Band MANES hat einen Vertrag beim Label Debemur Morti unterschrieben, über welches in absehbarer Zeit zwei Veröffentlichungen das Licht der Welt erblicken sollen.
Die Band kommentiert den Vertragsschluss wie folgt:
„We’re very exited about this cooperation with Debemur Morti.
In a world where most labels only see misfortune due to things like digital innovation, a handfull of labels see the possibilities that arise. Debemur Morti seems like such a label and a perfect match for Manes, as it is our impression that they embrace both musical and visual creativity with an meticulous attention to detail. We have always stated, to the tiresome, that experimentation and exploration are central in what makes Manes tick, and Debemur Morti only seems to want to nurture this fact. We still work in a void bereft of most expectations and genre limitations, at least we like to think we do, so they might be in for a ride.
We’re full of get-up-and-go vigour, and we’re something like 700% more active than when we were not. We’ve got two releases more or less ready to be unveiled, and more info about both will come as soon as dates and cover and stuff is ready. We’ve also started to concider doing some select gigs here and there, and we’ve assembled the crew from around the Vilosophe-album to realize this venture. If everything goes according to plan, we’ll be able to announce some concerts too, in the not so distant future.
I hope noone has been holding their breath waiting for some sort of official sign of life from us, and those who have most probably are dead, but alas; here we are.“
Das aktuelle Lineup der Band liest sich wie folgt:
Asgeir Hatlen – Gesang
Tor-Helge Skei – Gitarre, Computer
Eivind Fjøseide – Gitarre
Torstein Parelius – Bass, Texte, Visualisierungen
Rune Hoemsnes – Schlagzeug
