One of Denmarks finest newest rockbands BLACK BOOK LODGE return with the new album ‘Entering Another Measure’ – the follow-up to last year’s ‘Tûndra’, which was a huge critical acclaimed success in their native Denmark as well as in Europe.
“This new batch of songs has been in our minds since – well since before we released Tûndra”, says bass player Trygve Borelli of the new album entitled “Entering Another Measure”.
“Tûndra served us well to put it mildly. It kind of took us by surprise – to us it was just an extended and more elaborate version of the EP, which we offered for free back in 2012 or something. Therefor the songs already felt old when the album got released. That is probably the reason why we didn’t hesitate putting out album number two. We were just dying to play some new material, you know?”
‘Tûndra’ made somewhat of a dent in Denmark and 2014 saw Black Book Lodge perform at prestigious festivals like Copenhell and Spot Festival. They were also handpicked as special guests for Helhorse’s fall tour of Denmark. Even though ‘Tûndra’ received top scores from almost every music webzine in Denmark and wound up on several best of 2014 lists, Black Book Lodge decided deliberately not to repeat the same formula for their album number two.
“It could be an easy solution for us – people have responded well to our first album and we could just refine it somewhat and keep doing that whole ordeal, but that is just boring”, singer and guitarist Ronny Jønsson says in regards to the change in their sound.
The result is the staggering ‘Entering Another Measure’. An album with merely six songs but with a playing time of approximately 42 minutes.
‘Entering Another Measure’ will be released worldwide via Mighty Music June 8th. 2015!
