KAADA latest studio album 'Closing Statements' out on May 25th
The latest studio album from John Erik Kaada will be released via Mirakel recordings on May 25th 2018.
Kaada's last release was the exquiste Bacteria Cult (2016) a collaboration with Mike Patton.
"Closing Statements [consists of] fifty minutes of new music composed and recorded over twelve month period. It’s been one of the most enjoyable records to make in my life, if not the most fun ever.
Or at least the happiest I’ve ever been making a record. This might seem a bit contradictory, since the theme of the album circles around obituaries and last words before death.
The titles are quotes and fragments from different farewell utterances. Things that people (apparently) said when they were about to die. There is a mysterious aim over the final words of the dying. What does these last words reveal about life, death and consciousness? These words give a glimpse into the individual’s overall feelings and experiences.
The underlying message of the album is that we have to listen to each other. In a modern world where people mostly don’t have the time or interests to get to know one another, we need to be reminded that we need to listen. At least…when somebody is about to say their last words." - Kaada
