Copenhagen’s VOLA have announced their September 2019 European Tour with includes 4 shows in the UK in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Nottingham as well as slots at Ramblin’ Man Fair and Radar Festival. To celebrate this they have revealed the brand new video for ‘Ruby Pool’.

The tour is hot on the heels of their triumphant tours with MONUMENTS and Haken and the release of ‘Applause Of A Distant Crowd,’ which came out in October on Mascot Recordswhich has led Prog Magazine to declare them “one of prog’s hottest prospects,” Metal Hammer to revel in their “shimmering tech metal” and pick up fans in the shape of Trivium’s Matt Heafy and Paulo Gregoletto . The band will also be supporting Dream Theater on two shows in Germany in July.

Talking about the video for ‘Ruby Pool’, Asger Mygind says; “Whether the screen is a window to happiness or a barrier for happiness is subjective, but I imagine that a lot of people have experienced a sense of lost opportunity after having been absorbed in the screen at the wrong time and place. I surely have. It was with this image in mind that I began working on a video for Ruby Pool. It was shot at 9 different outdoor locations on Zealand, Denmark, during April and May 2019.”

Talking about the tour Nicolai Mogensen says; “We’re over the moon to be going on our first ever headline tour! It’s something we’ve been dreaming of doing for a very long time, and we are amazed to see it finally happening. As special guests we are bringing the mind-blowing acts Arch Echo and Rendezvous Point, who we are very proud to be sharing the stage with. We’ll be playing a longer set than on previous tours, so there will be time for playing some funky tunes – both old and new ones. If there’s a VOLA show you don’t want to miss, it’s this one! See you on the road.”

On the new album, Asger Mygind (vocals/guitar), Martin Werner (keys), Nicolai Mogensen (bass) and Adam Janzi (drums) probe society’s distractions from thoughtfulness and examine the way human relationships have evolved whilst touching upon fear and anxiety. Where their debut ‘Inmazes’ dealt with the struggle that came with being trapped in mental mazes, the themes are now focused on the outside world rather than internal conflict. The album title is a metaphor derived from our relationship with social media, how we can appear close but be miles apart. Mygind elaborates: “We spend a lot of time trying to present ourselves in a flattering light in the pursuit of continuous applause, even if it’s a distant applause from those you may not connect with away from the screens.”
