Salzburg, Austria – Blank Manuskript September 17, 2020

Art-Rock project Blank Manuskript release their latest effort “Himmelfahrt” the band’s 4th studio release and the follow up to their successful 2019 release of “Krásná Hora”

“Himmelfahrt” was to be available in two formats, Digital and as a Limited Edition Picture Disc to be sold exclusively at the bands shows on their upcoming tour. Sadly when the LPs arrived at the band’s headquarters it was determined Blank Manuskript could not sell the new album to fans due to inferior sound quality, and not holding up to Blank Manuskript standards. The good news is fans can purchase the digital album in almost all popular digital formats on Bandcamp.

About “Himmelfahrt”
2020: a pandemic virus turns our lives upside down. The vulnerability of our system is now obvious and uncertainty spreads around the globe, sowing the seeds of superstition, agitation, and incitement. While in quarantine, our thoughts circle the fundamental existential questions and finally, confusion impairs our composure. Now mythical creatures and ghosts inspire our imagination and ancient beliefs occupy our post-factual brains. The virus has penetrated our lives… It is the right time for psychoactive and contemplative musical enjoyment, it is time for Blank Manuskript.

With their recent release, Himmelfahrt Blank Manuskript interweave the masterpiece, Death by the Swedish 70’s Prog-Rock Band Dice with their conceptual work on Dante’s ‘Divina Commedia’. The result is a mind-blowing sonic journey through the underworld from the hellish abyss into the celestial spheres of heaven. In the accustomed quality, the Austrian ArtRock ensemble celebrates the epic breadth and invites listeners to encounter the realm beyond the short-living, superficial radio format.
Anyhow, musically highly contagious!
