German alternative rock band The Intersphere share their new single and title track of the latest album, 'The Grand Delusion' along with a live video. The video was shot during the band’s latest album release tour between December and January and gives a good impression of what to expect from The Interspheres upcoming dates with Coheed And Cambria as well as the summer festival season.
The background for the album The Grand Delusion is the highly subjective question that is not only posed by Paul Watzlawick in his eponymous book, but that has now reached a completely new dimension in the madness of media coverage: How real is reality? The songs are not only concerned with thinking and acting in sociological and societal contexts, in systems, orders and interpretations of reality created by humans, but also with reflecting on oneself, introspection and the question “What foundation is my own reality based on?” Almost five years after the last release, and after personal crises and changes, The Grand Delusion is lyrically the most personal album to date from The Intersphere, but also one of the most varied, loudest and angriest.
“The production aimed at recording the four main instruments live and as close up, big and detailed as possible, and thus duplication was largely avoided. We also experimented with new open tunings and countless distortion and fuzz pedals that make the sound more distorted and dirty. But there are also a couple of opulently arranged songs that enrich the sounds of The Intersphere with new colours and facets that people have never heard from us before.”
Like its predecessor, Relations In The Unseen, the album was produced by Christoph Hessler and The Intersphere, recorded live at Toolhouse Studios in Rotenburg, mixed and co-produced by Moritz Enders and mastered by Robin Schmidt. The artwork was once again created by the band's longtime associate Pierre Schmidt Dromsjel.
