“Liberation” has got fantastic reviews all over the world.
Following these great reviews the press believes that this may be the album that takes Art Nation to the big stages.
The album was recorded once again at Top Floor Studios by producer/engineer Jakob Herrmann (Amaranthe, Evergrey, Hardcore Superstar), and co-produced by Theodor Hedström and the studio’s assistant engineer Christoffer Borg (Kee Marcello, Bob Hund), who is also one of Art Nation’s guitarists.
To further emphasise each song’s identity, the producers and the band made the decision to work with multiple mixing engineers to equally share the mixing duties with Herrmann/Borg. Bringing back Jacob Hansen (Amaranthe, Volbeat), who mixed previous album“Revolution”, felt like an obvious choice.
For a third mixing engineer, they chose to work with Adam “Nolly” Getgood (Periphery, Devin Townsend). The album was mastered by Dragan Tanaskovic (In Flames, Avatar)
Your first glimpse of the new album was the single ”The Real Me”, released February 24th. The second single “Ghost Town” released the following month, on March 24th, and featured a music video filmed by Owe Lingvall (Meshuggah, Hammerfall).
The band will tour throughout the year, including a highly anticipated show at
Sweden Rock Festival, Scandinavia’s largest rock festival.
