Alcest Announces New Album – “Spiritual Instinct”

Blackgaze legends Alcest has completed their new album, Spiritual Instinct, due out via Nuclear Blast Records on October 25th, 2019. Recorded at Drudenhaus Studios, the band also shared the cover artwork as well, once again created in collaboration with Førtifem. The first single from Spiritual Instinct as well as the album pre-order date will be revealed soon.

Frontman Neige comments:

“Alcest’s 6th album is called Spiritual Instinct and will be released on the 25th of October on Nuclear Blast. The recording of Spiritual Instinct has been a long and challenging process, but we feel really proud of it and can’t wait to share our new music with all of you. The artwork has been made by the Parisian duo Førtifem and represents a sphinx, as a reference to the symbolism art movement. The sphinx is the ultimate figure of the enigma, which embodies both the spiritual and feral sides inside us.“

Alcest have two UK show dates scheduled in 2019, alongside several EU dates. They will be playing at Damnation Festival, Leeds on November 2nd and have announced today that they will be playing as support to Mono at The Barbican, London on December 14th. The show is set to celebrate Mono’s 20th anniversary, and Mono will be accompanied by The Platinum Anniversary Orchestra.
