ZIA due for release 28.04.17
Indian post-rock band aswekeepsearching have announced their new album ZIA, set for release 28.04 via Flowers Blossom In The Space.

The world's only Hindi prog band, aswekeepsearching have given a tantalising glimpse into the new album with track stream 'Reminiscence'.
First premiered via Prog, you can listen to the track here:
It’s rare that you hear a record as unique and emotional as ZIA. Mostly instrumental, partially sung in Hindi, and entirely cinematic and all-encompassing, ZIA is awash with pure aural beauty - lamentative, ethereal, and majestic.
For fans of Sigur Rós, 65daysofstatic, and God Is An Astronaut, ZIA is an album that meshes the finest traditions of cathartic post-rock and Indian musical heritage. Beyond the Hindi vocals, the album incorporates tabla drums, sitars, and Indian modes to stunning effect.
A band who’ve already toured Russia (watch their tour documentary here), aswekeepsearching have played major festivals across India, including all the Bacardi NH7 weekenders, and have shared stages with Steven Wilson, 65daysofstatic, Tides From Nebula, I Am Waiting For You Last Summer, The Formidable Joy and more - a group starting to flex their collective muscles.
Stay tuned for further news.
