Released initially in 2017, Greek band Lacrimae are now looking at getting their EP, Entropia out there outside of Greece. The Athens-based four piece, Annette, John, Andreas and Dinøs spoke with The Fountain about their EP as well as their plans for next year, there might be an album on its way.
TF: A new EP, how exciting, what has the reception been like so far?
The reception of Entropia has been great both by reviewers and listeners so far. Live shows helped a lot with that too. We worked a lot on its live presentation and live sound and people started getting curious.
TF: What can we expect from Entropia?
Entropia serves as an introduction to our world. You will get a taste of our sound and song writing style, which focuses on telling a different story with every song. Lyrics, arrangements and production set the tone and atmosphere of every story and we try to give them life through our performance. Expect ear catching melodies, heavy bridges and interludes, proggy passages and haunting vocals.
TF: And will you be promoting this with a list of exciting tour dates?
Since its release in 2017 we’ve played many shows here in Greece, both in our hometown of Athens and Thessaloniki, in order to promote it. Our current focus is on working the new material that will be featured in our first full-length album and promoting Entropia outside of Greece. We don’t have scheduled shows right now but that could change anytime so be sure to keep an eye on our social media profiles.
TF: Where has been your favourite gig to date?
Our favourite gig to date has to be the AN Club show in Athens back in January. We played alongside 3 of the most promising progressive bands of our scene. The sound was good, the venue was packed and we had an amazing time both on and off stage.
TF: You are working on your first LP, when can we expect this release?
Right now we are in the process of finishing the songs in terms of arrangement and pre-production. We hope to get in the studio this autumn. So expect it in early 2020.
