ALIEN DRIVE’s second studio album „GHOSTLAND“ has been officially released on October 1st, 2021.
Listen to it on Spotify!
„Ghostland“ is about the search for lost love and the lost God. But the opener „Victims on the Broadway“ already foreshadows that there will be no happy ending here.
The album starts with the „Goodbye“ of a female voice, which is immediately smothered by a wall of guitars. It is the voice of a real lost love and a too early ended dream that ALIEN DRIVE are looking for with passionate desperation in the emotional desert of „Ghostland“. A search that presents itself in different forms on the record – sometimes accusatory, sometimes energetic, sometimes hopeful and finally bitter. Strong guitars, melodic vocals – sometimes shallow, sometimes scratchy.
„Will you save us or not?“ the punky song „Gun“ asks the missing God – is there anyone at all, out there? „Dying at Your Door“ is another accusing cry into the yawning void. But the album also deals with its own failures – sometimes in a grungy, disillusioned way („Killerboy“), sometimes in a Britpop-ironic mainer („Sorry Again“).
The album closes with the sober realisation of surrender. A surrender, however, that comes with the Britpop anthem „Mind Erased“ with its head held high, with a healthy pinch of arrogance and the conscious turning away from a world in which ALIEN DRIVE no longer feels at home.
The wait is finally over. It’s been a long journey and certainly these crazy times have not made it easy but ultimately it’s done.
ALIEN DRIVE’S second studio album „Ghostland“ will be out this autumn!
Almost six years after our debut album „Are You the Enemy?“ we look forward to presenting you this fine piece of rock music.
ALIEN DRIVE’s debut album „Are You the Enemy?“ has been officially released on October 15, 2015.
It is available in all popular online stores such as iTunes, Spotify etc.
ARE YOUR THE ENEMY?” is characterized by its combination of modern American guitar sounds and catchy melodic vocals. Songs like “Chemical Soul”, “Mainstream Dolls Kill Rock ’n‘ Roll“ or “Velvet Bullets” clearly show their Britpop roots and come with a good load of hedonism. Other songs like the hit single “All These Bitter Days” or “Burning In Your Head” bear a very direct and captivating grungy expression. The musical spectrum of the album is completed by profound, partially dramatic songs like “Lost In The Fire” or “This Disease”, the multilayered track “Scavenge My Life”, as well as the captivating ballad “When They Come”.
Danish producer Boe Larsen (MillFactory NuVenue, Copenhagen) commented as follows: „Alien Drive’s debut album which was presented to me clearly demonstrates that Marco Pirolo is in the international league both in regards to songwriting, performance and production. The British/American inspiration is obvious but his music is a truly refreshing hard-hitting sound to come out of Germany. I will follow this guy closely.“
