Published Mar 19, 2018Wolfgang Voigt is keeping his GAS revival going impressively strong recently, so much so that he's just announced another new album from his high-minded electronic project. Titled Rausch, the new GAS full-length will arrive on May 18 via Kompakt.
The record follows last year's Narkopop — which was the first GAS album in 17 years — as well as a monstrous career-spanning box set.
Rausch will arrive on CD, digitally and as a 2-LP set. You can see the record's tracklist below, but as a press release explains, "The album is meant to be heard from beginning to end as a whole." That's the new album's art up above.
While not much else has been revealed about Rausch, its press release did supply the following text:
Rausch with no name / My beautiful shine / You are the sun / This is where I want to be / Rausch with no morning / This is where we burn / The Stars sparkle / In a sea of flames / Horns and fanfares / Fanfares of joy / Fanfares of fear / The wine we drink through the eyes / The moon pours down at night in waves / Careful with that axe Eugene / Personal Jesus / No beginning no end / Eighteenth of Oktember / The night falls / The king comes / The hunt starts / Freude schöner Götterfunken / The long march through the underwood / Trust me there's nothing / Once upon a time there was a bandit / Who loved a prince / That was long ago / Spring Summer Fall and Gas / There is a train heading to Nowhere / Drums and Trumpets / Future without mankind / Warm snow / Alles ist gut / The bells toll / You are not alone / The murmur in the forest / The murmur in the head / Light as mist / Heavy as lead / Music happens / To flow like gas / A clearing / Heavy baggage / Debut in the afterlife / Death has seven cats / World heritage Rausch / Finally infinite
