TOUNDRA have announced a brand new album!
The upcoming album, titled Vortex, is the fifth effort from the Spanish instrumental rockers and is scheduled to be released in April this year. Speaking about the upcoming album and it’s title, the band says, “on September 19th in 2012 we arrived at a venue called Vortex Surfer Musiklub in Siegen, a small town in Germany. We played there, the venue got packed and everything about that night, including the warm welcome from everybody working there, was incredible. We fell in love with that small venue and the house next to it where we slept that night. Since then, we played Vortex five or six times and there has always been that same great fond feeling from the people there. So, this upcoming album is called Vortex. We leave behind the roman numbers and want to use this as a way to thank all the promoters, people working in venues, labels, agencies, fans and everyone who has helped us over the years to live this dream. We can’t wait for you to hear some of the music.”
Alongside the announcement of the album, the band have revealed both the track list and artwork for the upcoming record. The artwork was created by Fran Rodríguez from La Cabeza en Las Nubes, who has worked with bands like WEEZER. Both of which are available to view below:
1. Intro Vortex
