Copenhagen based NYT LIV return on November 19th with their second album ‘Den døde sol’ (‘The dead sun’ in Danish) showing themselves from a more forceful and vigorous side expanding the framework of the indignated, alternative hardcore. Shaped as straight forward Danish poetry without use of sophisticated words and metaphors, the lyrics are about life and social indignation.
Today, NYT LIV release the album’s first single ‘Givet Op’ (‘Given Up’ in Danish) about which lead singer Michael Aagesen has the following to say: “This is definitely one of the most upbeat rock songs on this album with an almost festive chorus. The lyrics are about losing your dreams and getting stuck with the wrong people, but at the same time a strong call to take responsibility for yourself again.”
NYT LIV has just announced two Danish release shows in Copenhagen and Aarhus with label mates Anti Ritual. Tickets are now available for the following dates:
26.11.21 – Copenhagen, Underwerket (m. Anti Ritual)
03.12.21 – Aarhus, Headquarters (m. Anti Ritual)
‘Den døde sol’ is recorded with Jacob Bredahl (LLNN, Lifesick) producing and Brad Boatright (Nails, Ceremony, Modern Life Is War) mastering. Lasse Høgh (Nyredolk) has created the artwork based on the guitarist’s Martin Goltermann’s photographs of Copenhagen and Zealand at dusk. The album’s visual side reflects the album’s lyrics both in subject matter as well as very concrete manner, when the images are combined with singer Michael Aagesen’s handwritten lyrics in the booklet for the album’s vinyl edition.
‘Den døde sol’ will be released November 19th 2021 on vinyl, tape and digital formats via Indisciplinarian. The vinyl version is a gatefold with a 12 page booklet unfolding the artwork that is based on Goltermann’s vibrating images. There will be two limited editions with one of 200 black copies and another of 100 transparent orange and black splatter vinyls. The vinyl versions alongside a transparent orange cassette tape version limited to 100 copies are now available for pre-ordering at Indisciplinarian’s webshop HERE.
NYT LIV has made a name for themselves in recent years with the self-released 2018 EP “Livet Brænder” and the debut album “Ensomhedens Kolde Kald” (Indisciplinarian) released in May 2019, leading to shows at Roskilde Festival, Copenhell, SPOT Festival and support shows with like-minded artists such as Cancer Bats and Turnstile.
