On March 29th, FOREVER STILL will unleash their sophomore full-length release »Breathe In Colours« via Nuclear Blast. Inspired by a dystopian cyberpunk future and the fact that some of the biggest works in that genre, Blade Runner and Akira, are set in 2019, Denmark’s highflyers have adapted a dark musical concept for this record and take a look at the world being on the verge of ecological collapse, while humanity is fleeing into cyberspace to escape the horrors of the real world.
As it seems, the Danish quartett never sleeps – so in addition to shooting a music video for their previously released single ‘Rew1nd‘, the band has also recorded their rehearsal session, which not only shows the band’s unbound stage energy, but also Maja Shining‘s new theremin skills that you will hopefully be able to witness on tour later this year.
“We learned a lot from touring all over Europe in support of our debut album, Tied Down, and it influenced a lot of the songwriting for the new album”, Maja explains. “It’s very much written to be performed live and to give you a small taste of what to expect for our upcoming shows, we decided to invite a film crew to document one of our early rehearsals. The complete session is available on a USB stick as part of our pre-order bundles at our homepage.”
Watch the first excerpt of that rehearsal session in form of the epic hymn ‘Rew1nd‘ here:

When Philip K. Dick wrote what would later become Blade Runner, no one would have believed that the dystopian cyberpunk future he imagined 2019 to be, would be so similar to the world we live in today…
This realisation is what sparked the idea for the new album from FOREVER STILL –»Breathe In Colours«. With their sophomore full-length album, the band has evolved their songwriting skills even further and didn’t want to produce a carbon copy of its predecessor »Tied Down«, released in 2016. Instead, the new album drifts both into more epic moments, while frontwoman Maja Shining also delivers her heaviest screams to date. And for the first time, the songwriting duo of singer Maja and multi-instrumentalist Mikkel Haastrup have decided to make the album a more collaborative effort and therefore brought their long time live drummer, Rune Frisch, into the studio with them to record the drums – a big step for the two young musicians who handled everything on their own on the previous record, from music videos to band photos, the album production and even concert booking. After sweat, blood and tears and the surprising use of a theremin, the result ofFOREVER STILL’s efforts to break through the numbing grey, is a surprisingly diversified and mature album that breathes fresh air – and colours – into the bland rock scene.
