Moderat announCe new Album
Moderat have announced the details of their second studio album, to be released in the US on August 2nd and the UK on August 5th.
After spending 6 quite intense months in the studio we just Moderat finished our 2nd album. Its simply called Moderat II and we aged about 10 years while making it. We still think it was worth the trouble. Not seeing any sunshine or daylight for a long time, we cant wait to go on tour in August and play the new stuff live.
Once more, we cooperated with our friends from Pfadfinderei to create the new live show and the album artwork. To follow the cover design of the debut album and create a design series, we asked Siriusmo, who had already been drawing the punching woman of the first Moderat album.
The new album II will be released in a range of standard and deluxe formats.
Pre-order from Monkey Town Records
The design was done by Berlins design/visual collective and long term Modeselektor and Moderat collaborators Pfadfinderei:
“We wanted for the new Moderat album to follow the design of the debut album and create a design series, so we asked Siriusmo, who had already been drawing the punching woman of the first Moderat album, to come up with a similary unique follow up. At the same time we wanted it to be a bit more colourful, so that you would see its a step forward. Its similar, but different. Contrary to the self titled debut album, the successor has different cover art for the standard and deluxe album formats. Again, they are related, similar, but easily recognizable as distinct products.”
