whisperingsons imageThe Post-Punk quintet WHISPERING SONS from Brussels announce their long awaited debut album, ‘Image’. The record was produced by Micha Volders and mixed by Bert Libeert. And it is the band’s first release since their 2015 EP, ‘Endless Party’. ‘Image’ will be released on 19th October 2018 on the small Hamburg based label SMILE Records in the distribution of Soulfood / Believe Digital.

With ‘Image’, WHISPERING SONS leave their past behind and make a big leap forward. The band has entrusted themselves to producers Micha Volders (Meteor Musik, El Guapo Stuntteam & “overall synthesizer wizard”) and Bert Vliegen (Teen Creeps, Sophia) and used the 10-day stay in the studio as a chance to expand their sound and acoustic drums as well as to enrich a new sound aesthetics. The songs create an atmosphere that is both ominous and urgent and that captures the live intensity of WHISPERING SONS. The new songs have been written in a long-running process since 2016, after all members of the band moved to Brussels together. Between extensive tours, the band has to translate their newly gained experiences and perspectives into the new songs of the album. Influenced by the dynamics of the city of Brussels, the new songs reveal above all a sense of alienation and distancing.

‘Image’ describes a rather motionless state in which observing is above action, reflecting the artificiality of things while trying to capture ideals. The whole thing is supported by the artwork of Flor Maesen. In 2016, the band was awarded the Humo’s Rock Rally Prize - one of the most important Belgian music contests for newcomers. Past winners included bands like DEUS. After that, WHISPERING SONS spent most of their time touring extensively through Europe, earning the reputation of being an outstanding and very intense live band. Immediately after the release, WHISPERING SONS will present their new songs on October 20 at their Release Show & Party in Ancienne Belgique and start their European tour from there.
