ANEKDOTEN Premiere New Song “Get Out Alive”


Swedish progressive rock purveyors, Anekdoten, return after an eight year hiatus with their sixth studio album “Until All The Ghosts Are Gone” on April 10th. The new single “Get Out Alive” is available for streaming, check it out below.

Bassist Jan Erik Liljeström commented: “How to pick a first single from the forthcoming album? Choose a song that is fairly representative  and has a bit of everything in it, but is less than 10 minutes long. That the first line in the lyrics is “Hello my friend!” is a bonus in this case.

With “Until All The Ghosts Are Gone“ the band has delivered a moody sonic adventure with penetrating melodies from singer/guitarist Nicklas Barker, evocative mellotron soundscapes from Anna Sofi Dahlberg, underpinned by Jan Erik Liljeström‘s grinding bass and Peter Nordins defined drums and sizzling cymbals.

The album also sees guess appearances from Per Wiberg (ex-Opeth) on organ and Gustav Nygren (New Rose) on sax, flautists Theo Travis (Steven Wilson, Robert Fripp, David Sylvian), and guitarist Marty Willson-Piper (The Church, All About Eve, The Saints).

Jan Erik says: ”When we started out we had the ambition to take things to a higher level and I believe we succeeded. Listening to one song will take you to quite a few different places and listening through the whole thing is quite a journey. I feel this is music to get excited about.

The album was recorded by Hans Fredriksson and mixed by Grammy award winning producer, Simon Nordberg in Stockholm with the band. Track listing is as follows:

Shooting Star
Get Out Alive
If It All Comes Down To You
Writing On The Wall
Until All The Ghosts Are Gone
