Lento - Icon release date: April, 1st 2011.

Release date for Lento - Icon is scheduled for April, 1st 2011.
And yes, it is not a joke for April fools' day..

Preorders and free album download will start this week on http://www.denovali.com/lento


The album has taken shape after two intense years of touring Europe in which the band started to develop a more chaotic and restructured songwriting, having hard rehearsals among the gigs whilst touring and going deeper after the tour came to an end.
About one year of isolation in their home based studio, focusing on new songs.

Matteo Spinazzè (Zu/Original Silence/Fm Einheit) has led the drum tracking,
while Lorenzo Stecconi (Lento/Ufomammut/Lloyd Turner) has taken care of guitars/basses and final mixing flow at his Locomotore Recording Studio in Rome (IT).
James Plotkin has gone for mastering process in Philadelphia (US).

Final result are 10 tracks for a total running time of 37 minutes, in which the band explores a new range of emotions and feelings, 
a very deep and dark universe always brought by their usual postcore fury.
Band’s impact is well recognized as one of the most overwhelming and mind-blowing, and the song structures have been particularly developed to achieve this.

The album shall be released by German Denovali Records (Celeste, Fall of Efrafa among others) on April, 1st, 2011.

CD comes in a matte gatefold digipak. 
LP comes in a matte heavy gatefold cover + matte printed inner sleeves. 
180g vinyl, 100 pieces on ultraclear vinyl + white & black splatter, 100 pieces on grey vinyl, 300 pieces on clear vinyl.

ICON

Hello everyone,
welcome to our blog.

Finally we entered our new shape.
Icon,our second album, is now complete in all of its forms as mastering and artwork are both complete.

It'll be out on Denovali Records in Spring 2011, stay tuned for more details to come about the release date.
You can listen to a preview of a couple of tracks on
myspace or here.

We are currently booking a European tour for April 2011, thus feel free to contact us on lentobooking at gmail dot com if you are interested in setting up a gig.

We are really excited to hit the road again and can't wait to play Europe and, of course, Italy.
Our aussie labelmates Terminal Sound System, actually the side project of Skye from Halo (Relapse) will join us for the whole tour.
Their brand new album shall be out in Spring 2011 as well on Denovali.

A significant change of approach has occurred in the live line up, as this is going to be our first tour as a quartet,
Giuseppe has moved to UK and he is unfortunately not able to take part of this first leg of gigs.
Rehearsing process for the live setlist is in progress, some things have to be set yet but we are not running behind.

We hope to have a good time as usual and to see you out there.

See you soon.
Take care.

Lorenzo
