ALCEST release music video for first single, 'Protection', start album pre-order, announce tour


On October 25th, ALCEST will release their sixth studio album titled »Spiritual Instinct«. Recorded at the French Drudenhaus Studios and written in bursts both during and after a prolonged period of touring in support of 2016’s hugely successful »Kodama«, the new album – the first to be released via Nuclear Blast – will lead the blackgaze pioneers “into dark soundscapes full of spiritual catharsis”. Today, the wait is over as singer/multi-instrumentalist Neige and drummer Winterhalter have revealed the first single ‘Protection’ from the band’s upcoming album.
