Germany's DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER will release its new album, "Moral & Wahnsinn" (English translation: Morality & Insanity) on February 25, 2011 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Commented the band: "Now that we are finished in the studio, we have the fantastic feeling that we have created something very unique, something that has never been done before. The album unifies all of our musical extremes and strengths with a brutal lyrical intensity that reflects all the highs and lows of human insanity. But the album also speaks to the morality that hides in each and everyone of us. Insanity is a fantasy, morality is hard, dry reality."
"Moral & Wahnsinn" track listing:
01. Die Boten
02. Gib Dich Hin
03. Hammer Oder Amboß
04. Dir Gehört Nichts
05. Dr. Pest
06. Moral & Wahnsinn
09. Wir Reiten
10. Hört Auf
11. Ein Liebes Lied
A trailer for the album can be viewed below.
Parallel to the album's release, DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER will embark on a headlining tour. For each of the shows, 300 strictly limited and collectible hardcover tickets will be made available exclusively via the band's web site at www.reitermania.com. Regular tickets will be sold through normal ticketing outlets.
DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER had its latest album, "Licht", released in the U.S. in November 2009 via The End Records. The U.S. version of the LP comes with six bonus tracks (two studio, four live) and "stunning" new album art, including an alternate cover.
