A Life Divided featuring vocalist Jürgen Plangger and songwriter/producer Erik Damköhler release their new single ‘Addicted‘, the second track taken from new album, Echoes, due for release on 31st January.
“It was during the 80s when we first came into contact with music. At that time, I bought my first Adidas Allround sneakers, let my hair grow and played the songs of my metal heroes on guitar,” recalled Plangger.
Whereas Damköhler was more of a synth-wave fan back then. “That’s how we came up with the idea of mixing our A Life Divided-style with the typical synth-sounds of the 80s,” he said. “Echoes as a result was something completely new: 13 songs that combine our dark alternative rock with the zeitgeist of the 80s.”
“The songs on the new album Echoes revolve around the theme of finiteness and the echo that is left from all of us,” continued Plangger. “Finiteness is threatening when we love and live, but it can also be comforting when we grieve, experience hurt or have been disappointed. But there is always an echo, a quiet reminder, of what was.”
Echoes by A life Divided will be released on January 31st on digipak, limited edition coloured vinyl, limited edition box set through on AFM Records.
