THE AMSTERDAM RED LIGHT DISTRICT (TARLD) have announced new album Sapere Aude, set for release on March 1st 2018 via Red Light Records.
To celebrate the band have released new single 'Need'. Premiered on Metal Injection, check it out here: https://youtu.be/gscVADAE7XY
The band have also made the track available free for download from today: https://tarldtheband.bandcamp.com/track/need-2
A song and video influenced by philosopher Immanuel Kant’s work encompassing the concept of enlightenment, 'Need' combines post-hardcore instrumentation with strong, thought-provoking lyrics.
By highlighting the consequences of consumerism, TARLD combine video clips from today's and previous generations to emphasise the similarities of different behaviours to materialism, and how dangerous it can be to human intuition and reasoning. ‘Need’ presents a rebellious yet creative outlook on today's social landscape.
Guitarist Maxxx explains:
“We are surrounded by brands and their marketing strategy and it is just impossible to avoid it. Our computers are made to be dead after 6 or 7 years of using, 3 or 4 years for our cell phones. Ultimately, it is sad to see that people obsessively buy things that are of little value to them. They just want the brand new thing, to be "in-vogue".
Having firmly established themselves with their highly acclaimed debut 'Gone For a While', THE AMSTERDAM RED LIGHT DISTRICT are set to further raise the bar with sophomore album Sapere Aude. With a notable touring record having performed across Europe with the likes of Refused, Anti-Flag and Slayer, TARLD show no sign of slowing in 2018 with many dates to be announced soon.
