ifsounds Returns with New Lineup for Upcoming Release

According to band founder Dario Lastella:
Much has happened since the release of Red Apple in 2012, I had moved back to Italy from Spain and  have assembled a new line-up which I am very happy with. We have been locked away in the studio for the last year writing and recording new music.

We have a total of 10 new songs, 4 of which have been recorded in Italian and roughly 6 more songs to go. We still need to record the vocals in English as well. The band has also been rehearsing the older material in between recording the new material for a future shows and a possible tour. We do not yet have a name for the new album but we hope to have it ready for release in the first part of 2015

Transport Aerian Reveals Track Listing For Upcoming Album and Video Teaser




Transport Aerian announces that the project's next work will be a conceptual album, which is based on the surrealist self-penned story of exile, self-isolation and love. The album is scheduled to be released in the late 2015 world wide on Melodic Revolution Records (USA) and will feature project's mastermind Hamlet and a very special guest musician whose name and identity for now remains incognito.

According to Hamlet of Transport Aerian:

I have been working on my new album Darkblue, the songwriting phase has been finished and now I’m slowly proceeding to the recording stage. Darkblue is a conceptual album, every song is a part of the story, and the bits of this incoming story are reflected in the titles of the songs.

Darkblue Track List:
1. Black
2. Full Body Access
3. Sand Horizon
4. Imperial
5. Crossbreed
6. Sniper
7. Epitaph
8. Happy With The Future

Transport Aerian released LOVE.BLOOD.LIVE on April 22nd 2014. 
LOVE.BLOOD.LIVE features Hamlet on Vocals, guitars, keyboards, bass, sampling, and programming as well as the addition of Stefan Boeykens on Guitars, guitar loops. This live collaboration really seems to add some brilliant textures to the fabric of the live album, which is the follow up to Bleeding released in 2013 and reissued as 24 Bit-Remaster on March 2014.
