Today we want to reveal the cover art as well as the tracklist and more information about the record.
“Grandeur’’ opens a whole new spectrum of musical pathways and offers a more mature sound 7 years after the release of previous full-length effort “Escape Artist”. Inspired by the state of the world, the title is not only a beautiful word, but also reveals some of the underlying themes in the songs. Paying attention to all details the band got the talented Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Make Them Suffer, Animals as Leaders) to take care of mixing and mastering. Artist Radu Damian was in charge of the artwork, making sure it fits with the new sound.
When discussing the creation of the record, Eugen says: “The writing process for this album was quite different. We came up with the whole thing during several writing camps and it was a BLAST. We`ve always inspired one another so being in the same room making music together was awesome. There were A LOT of Eureka moments! I think this is our most mature record so far.”
Regarding the sound of “Grandeur”, Șerban comments: “Long time listeners of White Walls will notice that this album is somewhat more streamlined, if you will. Our approach this time around was to try and focus more on writing songs, trying to avoid the pitfalls of being a young prog band: hungry for jumping from riff to riff while disregarding structure, form and cohesiveness. We’re incredibly happy with what we were able to write and how it came to sound.”
