Darkwave virtuoso Anders Manga announces his seventh studio album Andromeda. After spending last year focused on his Gothic Metal band Bloody Hammers and releasing a new album on Napalm Records, Anders returns back to his Darkwave and Post-Punk roots with his new album Andromeda. Anders provides some insight into his new album and it’s a concept.
Overall it’s a darkwave album as long-time listeners would generally expect but there are also some genre-fluid moments. ‘Andromeda’, to me is a surreal concept album. In my mind, it lives in a weird post-nuke movie from the 70s or 80s. I also used quite a bit of an Alesis Andromeda synth on the album so that also influenced the title. I’m currently looking into 2020 tour dates and excited to play some of ‘Andromeda’, and of course a few classics live this year.
The first single Rosaries and Requiems is out now and can be heard below. Andromeda will be released on January 24th and is available exclusively through his Bandcamp.
