Icelandic modern prog-rockers The Vintage Caravan announce new album ‘Monuments’
Watch the official video for new single ‘Whispers’ now!
Nordic favorites The Vintage Caravan are pleased to announce the upcoming release of their new full-length album, ‘Monuments’, out April 16, 2021 via Napalm Records! The band incorporates a fountain of modern influences mixed with retro reminiscences to create an addictive sound all their own. After countless high-voltage live performances at festivals such as Roadburn, Wacken and Hellfest, and touring with Opeth, the Icelandic band’s new full-length impressively demonstrates that they have matured both musically and lyrically, accented by bold, nostalgic nuance. Virtuosic ‘70s-inspired guitar ruminations encounter an irrefutable mixture of fresh elements and psychedelic, progressive and blues rock trademarks on ‘Monuments’, radiating the soul of some larger-than-life bands of the past as these youngbloods breathe new life into a classic formula. Cut from ‘Monuments’, their first new single, ‘Whispers’, showcases the band’s musical progression without sacrificing the retro-inspired staples they’ve become renowned for. The accompanying video takes its viewer straight into the hearts and studio of the band, connecting with lucid live-music vibes. Above all, the performance video also highlights the band’s musical passion and provides an intimate glimpse into their sonic work.
“First single is ‘Whispers’! It was one of the first things we came up with for the album. We always try to start our albums in a strong and powerful way and it felt fitting as an opener. Hope you like it as much as we do! Enjoy!!” – The Vintage Caravan
