    Great news. This is the stuff they recorded with Deathprod in Oslo August last year.
    Excited to hear the results!

    EDIT: Reine not mentioned in the hashtags in the Instagram post makes me think he is not featured on this album.

    They must be the most reliably productive band in the world. It's starting to get silly (but I'm not complaining!)

    Great News, indeed. There's a late 90s vibe to the artwork,i can't exactly put my finger on. Also a bit Haircuts-esque

    As artwork this seems like new territory for MP, I get late Sixties feeling, for example, A Saucerful of Secrets. Title of the records points in the same direction, this will be a good one

    Some info from damusic.be:

    Motorpsycho has finished the successor to 'The All Is One' (2020) and 'Kingdom Of Oblivion' (2021). It will be released on August 19 via Stickman Records.

    The record was recorded at the Amper Tone studio in Oslo in the summer of 2021 without Reine Fiske and mainly in live takes with only a few overdubs, with vocals added afterwards.

    The artwork comes from a movie, shot in August in Skottbun Norway. More details to follow.

    Really looking forward to this one. I wonder what movie they are talking about.

    @Krist Rampage the bio mentions a multi-year film project with teatre troupe De utvalgte aiming to document the MP experience, starting last summer, rather sparse on detail though so who knows. Could be the film they talk about.

    Review copies are landing. I met a music acquaintance at a Magma concert last night who said he'd received one for his progressive rock website.

    Curious about the track list composition. Long songs, short ones...few songs or many?

    @marc: don't know the track list, but there's at least one 'lang' (long) and one 'halvlang' (half long)!

    From what I heard it's supposed to be a single album comprised of regular tracks and one longer track. A pretty classic formula. I like that!

    According to this site it’s:
    Recorded mainly in live takes with only a few overdubs and the vocals added afterwards, this is essentially the band playing live in the studio. At times fairly frantic and angular yet grandiose and hypnotic, this is a very explorative offering without a whole lot of choruses.

    It all sounds really promising. No shenananihans and lots of band dynamics

    From the Stickman newsletter: "In four tracks, Motorpsycho present a summary of their exploits in the past years: blistering prog rock, experimental soundscapes, heavy rock grooves, theatrical breakdowns, and lengthy, epic buildups."

    Three songs on the A-side, Ny lang on the B-side is my guess?

    Also haha: "We have enough stock for everyone, so there's no need to storm the website right at 11 o'clock!"

    Tracklist:

    A
    The Ladder (6:41)
    The Flower Of Awareness (2:13)
    Mona Lisa Azrael (12:15)

    B
    Chariot Of The Sun - To Phaeton On The Occasion Of Sunrise (Theme From An Imagined Movie) (22:22)

    Please don't share it across all platforms immediately...

    By the way, I think this is my first post

    Chariot Of The Sun - To Phaeton On The Occasion Of Sunrise (Theme From An Imagined Movie)

    Is this their longest song title to date?

    In this world of craziness a new album by Motorpsycho will cheer me up no end! So bring it on!
    Also a new Dungen release is great news too.

    Best wishes from deepest Lancashire UK.
