Meanwhile captures France’s Klone at their most expansive musically and emotionally. – PROG
“Meanwhile is bewitching and quite frankly addictive, we can only be happy to count the quintet among the best of the progressive world ” 6/6 Attention ! Masterpiece ! - METALLIAN
After releasing their sensational Kscope debut ‘Meanwhile‘ in February, Klone embarked on a fantastic UK / EU tour with Devin Townsend. Following a successful campaign, conquering territories all over Europe, the band returned to their native France for their headline show at ‘L’Empreinte’ in Savigny.
Having previously unveiled the live footage that was captured during their magnetic performance on April 15th now the band have released an evocative video for ‘Night And Day’, that showcases a darker tone to the already introspective progressive act.
Directed and edited by Julien Metternich (https://www.instagram.com/nrvju/) the video follows an emotional story told in a post apocalyptic world in a beautifully idiosyncratic clip.
“Night and Day” is an important song for us and is, in a way, the keystone of “Meanwhile” our latest album.” Its musical construction is quite simple, but still has the emphasis on riffing. The song’s atmosphere is both heavy yet ethereal, coming from the different sound contrasts and the interplay of instruments. Lyrically it speaks of a visceral need for change, to leave the world to which the protagonists no longer belong. The story is dark, but with a glimmer of hope. In a way, it’s a quest for a better future. Set in a post-apocalyptic atmosphere, the video clip, directed by Julien Metter, adds an extra dimension to the lyrics and music.” – Yann Ligner
French art-rockers Klone have risen to new heights across the globe, touring alongside the likes of Leprous and Pain of Salvation, and blowing away festival crowds at Hellfest, Motocultor, Prog Power USA, Midsummer Prog, and Cruise to the Edge.
Recorded in February 2022 with producer Chris Edrich (TesseracT, Leprous, The Ocean Collective), Meanwhile chronicles the best and worst aspects of humanity. Vocalist Yann Ligner’s high-concept and oftentimes meta lyrics paint a picture of events taking place at the same time but in different places, while he muses about choices that are made against our will that can change the course of our common history – resulting in some poignant reflections about today’s world.
