Laibach Releases

(Mute) Laibach announce a brand new album release, "Volk." The follow up to 2003's WAT, the album is released on Mute on October 31, 2006. Laibach also release new DVD, "Divided States of America" in the US November 14, 2006.

Volk, meaning "people" (i.e. people as a nation), is a collection of interpretations of national anthems and includes the national anthem for NSK, the State in time without territory and national boundaries which Laibach have been linked with since its formation in 1984. This grand project sees a Laibach utilizing new sonic avenues previously uncharted by the band, but with a result that is Laibach to the core. On "Volk," each of the tracks is based on and inspired by an original anthem. The opening track, Germania uses Das Lied der Deutschen, originally written in 1797 and used after World War I as the national anthem of the German Empire at the time of the Weimar Republic, and reinterprets it while Anglia, uses John Bull's God Save The Queen as its inspiration and the result is something quite, quite different. The tracks are mostly sung in English and each anthem has a guest singer, often singing in their native language.
