Lars will release his new album, "Sand and Blood" on November 16, 2017.
"Sand and Blood" is a hard rocking affair for fans of Lars early
albums mixed with finesse and maturity that you can only get from a
true veteran with more than 30 album in his back catalogue.
As it is 30 years since he released his debut solo EP "Can't Go On
Without Your Love" the 11 track album will include a new 2017 version of this 1987 classic as
well as a guest performance by Adrienn Antal. All
the other ten tracks are sung by Lars himself. Besides the album's two
orchestrated tracks (one sung by Adrienn) this is a guitar dominated
hard rock affair made for the stage. Alexander King (Condition Red) is
playing the piano and Christer Jansson hits the drums.
Lars is also planning to publish a free downloadable book that
accompanies his new album filled with information, lyrics, images and
reissue of the 1992 classic "LARS ERIC MATTSSON'S VISION" as well as
the previously unreleased 1993 follow up and also a
previously unreleased Live+ album are to be released one album per
June and July 2017.
The previously released
VISION album "On the Edge" is to be reissued in new versions later.
In 1993 after the
highly successful "Lars Eric Mattsson's VISION" was
released a live mini album as well as a new studio album was recorded.
However due to difficulties with the record label at the time these two
gems were never released. In March 2017 all these three albums were
remastered and completed for digital release.
