It’s been a while since Planistry released their first album “ThREELESS”.
Soon after the first album was completed they began to work on new material. There were also lots of things going on, like moving to Helsinki, and finding valuable contacts to get the band to the next level. They also had to make a few lineup changes during the album process.

Versatile in its music and themes, the album deals with issues such as climate change, overpopulation, interfaith conflicts and the fight against cancer. Although the album deals with such heavy themes, the overall spirit and message of the album is positive. The album concept is also associated with a tragedy in early 2000s, when songwriter Tarmo Tikkinen’s otherwise idyllic hometown Parikkala was shadowed by frequent suicides among young adults. “Confucktion” and its songs are dedicated to all those who lost their lives in such senseless acts of youth.
