Brainchild behind the French progressive rock band Demians, Nicolas Chapel, has announced his new upcoming album.
The new Demians record, entitled "Mute", comes out June 28th on Inside Out Music, distributed by EMI Music.
"Mute" contains nine songs that range from raw Alternative to orchestral parts and poetic sounds, but the focus is always on the song. "I wanted the record to reflect my strengths as well as my weaknesses, so it doesn't sound as pleasing and nice as the first record did. I tracked almost everything just with one or two takes for each instrument and vocals, keeping the rawness and sometimes even the mistakes just to confront myself to who I really am", Nicolas reveals.
"Swing Of The Airwaves" is a song that deals with the idea that every human is an antenna, receiving and transmitting information throughout his life, making everyone unique and yet a part of the world. "Feel Alive“ deals with the numbness, and the anger of wasting your time because of something out of your control. "One of the songs I'm most proud of is called "Hesitation Waltz“, a huge crescendo starting from very quiet vocals and drums, and ending in a wall of guitar feedbacks with pounding drums until the very end. It's my way of putting in a song all the everyday noise everyone experiences, human contact slowly disappearing from everyday's life. I hope that while listening to this record, people will mute the noise of the outside world and find some sincerity back".
The album includes the following tracks:
1. Swing Of The Airwaves
2. Feel Alive
4. Black Over Gold
7. Rainbow Ruse
8. Hesitation Waltz
9. Falling From The Sun Stay
The cover art and an edited version of 'Swing of The Airwaves' are uploaded on his myspace.

Too bad this guy is dropping the synths entirely on this album. I love Earth so much because of it and hoped to see more songs with that vibe.
Not saying the new track isn't totally awesome though! Can't wait for 'Mute'.
Been meaning to check out Building an Empire for awhile...
cant wait to hear this, building an empire was awesome
holy shit. finally a 2010 release that i am really fucking stoked about. AOTY
i dug the first album, and i'm really excited about this one...but in every interview and statement chapel comes across as a giant douche.
the new album is pretty sweet
Man, I hope this is as good or better than Building An Empire; I love that album.

Ahh I love 2010
