We Stood Like Kings Announces New Album "USA 1982"

The Brussels-based post-rock band We Stood Like Kings announces the release of a new film music project entitled USA 1982, intended as an alternative soundtrack for the American cult movie Koyaanisqatsi directed by Godfrey Reggio.

After BERLIN 1927 and USSR 1926, this third opus USA 1982 – the band’s most ambitious project to this day, a musical reinterpretation of a movie famous for its original score by Philip Glass – embodies the musical maturity of the band which since 2012 has devoted itself to the accompaniment of masterworks of silent cinema.

In 2017, despite celebrating its 35th birthday, Koyaanisqatsi remains profoundly modern. The relationship between humanity, nature and technology illustrated by Godfrey Reggio, Ron Fricke and co. in the movie finds itself at the heart of the challenges of today’s society.

At the crossroads between Chopin, Pink Floyd and Explosions In The Sky, We Stood Like Kings play instrumental progressive rock tinted with neon classical influences thanks to the central presence of the piano.

USA 1982 will be released on Friday, September 22, 2017 on CD, LP and digital via German label Kapitän Platte.
