Press release (Accession Records):
Release date: November 18th, 2011
Icon:Koru is studio album number 5 in the exceptional career of one of the most influential electronic bands on the scene. It’s a rare occasion that a project manages to shake up the whole club world with their debut album, like [:SITD:] have done, and the pioneers of their art continue to go ahead with almost unashamed ease to this very day. In the world of [:SITD:], completely different electronic styles fuse to one dark and fascinating opus. The lyrics are inspiring and thought-provoking, while the anthemic, sweeping melodies are driven forward by energetic, hammering beats and grooves. [:SITD:] are unmistakable – an original that has reinvented and developed itself again and again. With their anniversary album, [:SITD:] look back at a 15 year career span, and with Icon:Koru they are solemnly offering a work that can hardly be surpassed. Musically, the sound creators play out all their skills and talents, and the sound thundering out of the loudspeakers is duly dark and powerful, while the lyrics come across as strong and profound. In the rhythm department, [:SITD:] have employed even more explosive and harder sounds, leaving the DJs with just one major problem: which track to choose! Such historic release would be incomplete without a proper anniversary edition, and here, no expenses have been spared either. The extremely limited “15th Anniversary Collector’s Box” provides a feast for the senses, a must-have for every fan but also all music lovers new to the band. The box contains 4 CDs with a total of 43 previously unreleased tracks, coming up to a running time of more than four hours!! The regular new album is of course included, while the other three discs contain “Best Of 2001-2011”, “Remixes” and “Early Works 1996-1999”. And what’s more, these albums are aptly cased in 4 digipaks, complete with a 32-page booklet in a magnificent digiboks. All a fan’s heart could ever wish for!
