After 4 appreciated US Tours, +150 gigs in Scandinavia, England and the US, airtime in Swedish, European and American Radio, a much appreciated album “Until We Are Dead”, OUTSHINE (Gothenburg, Sweden) now focus on a new album set to be released in spring 2012.
OUTSHINE entered the studio Grand Recordings in Gothenburg, Sweden in August 2011 to start the recording of the not yet titled new album. The album will be mixed and produced by Svein Jensen (M.A.N., Sister Sin, Hide The Knives, Troublemakers, Devilicious etc) and Jimmy Norberg (Dead Tree Music, Outshine) and will be released by Dead Tree Music in collaboration with an not yet decided label.
The band will start the launch of the new album by releasing a album teaser video in collaboration with Affliction Clothing and Dee Jee Fashion Trading on October 18th 2011. See the new teaser here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPbeVAR9Cno
The release of the first single, together with a video is planned to November 2011.
Outshine has a melancholy and dark approach to their music. The music is an combination between strong vocals (compared with icons as Billy Idol, Vince Neil and in the heavier parts, Dez Fafara) and down-tuned, melodic and diverse sound with some gothic vibes in it. The band has influences from bands like System Of A Down, Alice In Chains, Smashing Pumpkins and Paradise Lost and the latest album “Until We Are Dead” got great reviews in European press.
Jimmy Norberg on the new album : “The new album, written as an album (not just 9-10 songs put together), is more direct, straight forward and has a very dark and melodic touch to it. It´s recorded in an analog studio because we believe that today’s digitally mastered and mixed albums loses a bit of the essence and soul in the music. We wanted it “alive”. Some new influences is implemented in the Outshine sound 2011, it´s very heavy and it feels like we´ve found the perfect set-up for an Outshine album.”
