2CD - DEINE LAKAIEN - INDICATOR Limited Ed with bonus CD

First limited edition double-CD in digipak, including an EXCLUSIVE 9-tracks Bonus-CD, featuring 7 audio-tracks and two different Videos for the single ‘Gone’ (The single is NOT available outside Germany – sorry!). "Older, wiser, but still we are these fighters" – one line from Deine Lakaien''s song "Along our Road" puts the message of their new album in a nutshell. One might equally say: farewell legends – welcome to reality. For, after a voyage of over twenty years'' duration, Deine Lakaien are ready to ditch old ballast and every last cliché and present the most exciting album of their entire career. Few bands have so polarised opinion over the last two and a half decades as this duo, singer Alexander Veljanov and keyboard player Ernst Horn: it''s always been a straight case of love or hate. Yet only a few notes of the opener suffice to recognise that past judgements – good or bad – no longer hold true. Tired categorizations are a thing of the past for this band. Having laid aside their masks and stepped out from the shadow of their history, the two dedicated performers are centred more clearly than ever in their own selves – which is an open invitation to listeners from across the board to step into their world. It''s exactly five years since Veljanov and Horn released their last studio album "April Skies" but they haven''t just been twiddling their thumbs in the meantime. They celebrated their twentieth anniversary with an opulent orchestra tour and continue to pursue their long-standing tradition of acoustic tours: opportunities enough for a little soul-searching. "Indicator" doesn''t simply rehash tried and tested formulas. It heralds a whole new era. Anyone who''s always appreciated Deine Lakaien will find on this album a fine range of what the duo has always done well. Both musicians have, after all, crammed tons of experience into their tour luggage. One aspect is even more important than their return to electronic sounds: Deine Lakaien now works to create intimacy with its listeners. They have courage enough now for poetic simplicity of a kind they rarely attempted before. Their songs may still be highly emotional but divested of any touch of pathos they sound refreshingly carefree and light. In addition to political and social commentaries the album also presents a few wonderful ballads and love songs. Yet, like life itself, Deine Lakaien places the heady heights of emotion in the context of global developments. After 25 years they no longer want to wax lyrical about the theme of all themes, like some dashing Romantics in the first boisterous throes of puberty. In terms both of content and music, "Indicator" is a multifaceted, intense album that embraces the world''s diversity, dreams and hopes yet also relentlessly faces up to reality. The title "Indicator" must be understood also in that light. Deine Lakaien consciously chose a no-nonsense motto, not only for the listeners'' sake but also for their own, and as a signpost on their new path. Because they''re older, wiser, but still these old fighters...
