Efterklang have released their fifth studio album ​'Altid Sammen​', their first release in their native Danish.  The album, whose title translates to “always together,” arrives seven years after their previousalbum,​ Piramida​.  Efterklang will debut 'A​ltid Sammen' ​in its entirety in the concert hall of the Elbphilharmonie during Reeperbahn Festival.  All 2100 seats for the concert are sold out, but the performance will be livestreamed at 5:30pm ET; tune in here.

Deep and sonorous, ​'Altid Sammen' is steeped in the sonic experimentation that has long been their trademark since ​Tripper​, the Danes’ 2004 debut.  As bold and ambitious in scope as their last collection of songs, ​Piramida​, Casper Clausen (vocals), Mads Brauer (synths, electronics) and Rasmus Stolberg (bass) have taken another creative U-turn, this time fusing baroque instrumentation with their signature expansive sound.

“A​ltid Sammen​’s songs are about belief and togetherness,” C​lausen says.  “Not in a religious way – none of us are believers of a defined religion. The words are searching for meaning in intimate relationships, in nature, in death and eternity.  The bonds we create; to gather, hold hands, sing or share a moment together.  We’re all connected, across nations, age, sex and gender.  We come together with all of our backgrounds, and we move apart in all sorts of directions, always together.”

Efterklang - Altid Sammen

1. Vi er uendelig 
2. Supertanker
3. Uden ansigt
4. I dine øjne
5. Hænder der åbner sig
6. Verden forsvinder
7. Under broen der ligger du
8. Havet løfter sig
9. Hold mine hænder

Efterklang’s live shows have always been ambitious affairs and their ​'Altid Sammen' ​tour will be just as elaborate.  Recently added to Le Guess Who? Festival’s line-up, the trio – with their 7-piece band – will perform in the TivoliVredenburg concert hall and have also confirmed two Mexico appearances in late November.  A full list of dates can be found below.
