DEINE LAKAIEN - Unveils Sixth Single And Lyric Video From The Upcoming Double Album

German avant-garde darkwave icons Deine Lakaien are getting near to the official release date of their brand new double album Dual via Prophecy Productions on 16th April. Today the duo has released a lyric video for the song "Unknown Friend" as the sixth single taken from the album. Corresponding to the overarching concept of an inspirational "cause and effect", which is the fundamental idea behind this double album, "Unknown Friend" represents the duo's musical "reply" to the previously released Kansas classic "Dust In The Wind".

"The decision to turn "Unknown Friend" into the lyrical mirror image of Kansas' "Dust In The Wind" came very quickly to me", tells the singing poet Alexander Veljanov. "Both songs are based on a theme that poses the question, what will remain at the end, after we have lived our lives and how we have experienced our existence and what have we made out of it."

Ernst Horn complements this statement with his view: "A similar harmonic and calm mood builds the musical connection between turn "Unknown Friend" and "Dust In The Wind", which both feature a melancholic melody in the verse and then ascend into a motionless soundscape. The key sounds provided by Sitar and the ethereal synths coming from my beloved old PPG Wave 2.2 underline the peaceful tranquillity of these tracks. Again, this is an invitation to a distant ream of dreams. Yet as opposed to the symbol of transience represented by "Dust In The Wind", "Unknown Friend" is meant to stand for reaching the point of determination regarding our inner destiny."

In other news, German cultural icon Deine Lakaien have been confirmed for one of their legendary acoustic sets at Prophecy Fest in the label's 25th anniversary year 2021 taking place at the natural Cave of Balve, Germany from Thursday, September 9 to Saturday, September 11. Link
