SOEN Set February Release For New Album “Lotus”


Lotus“, the new album from SOEN (ex-Opeth), has officially been scheduled for a February 01st release date via Silver Lining Music. Recording sessions for the effort were produced by David Castillo and Iñaki Marconi at Ghostward Studios and Studio 6. Vocalist Joel Ekelöf said of the record:

“Ultimately, ‘Lotus‘ is about rising from whatever darkness, or dark places, you might find yourself. And its inspiration comes from a deep motivation to not just settle for the situation you might find yourself in.

Lotus‘ is about changing life — both your own and your surroundings for which we must all take responsibility — and make them better rather than letting darkness pacify you and take you down.”
