Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Hot on the heels of their double platinum No. 1 album Control, Dutch rock band Kensington is releasing a new expanded edition on double 180g vinyl. The first vinyl disc consists of the original eleven track Control album while the second disc features eleven more tracks, all recorded live at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam in 2016. The accompanying disc includes live takes on such Control tracks as the title cut, "Regret," "Sorry," and "St. Helena."
Control is a statement about the here and now. The lyrics on Control, all written by singer Eloi Youssef, are more personal than ever before. Control is also about extremes ranging from the quiet and gentle "Storms," to a loud rocker like "St. Helena" and even an a-typical, guitar-free song ("Regret"), which mixes electronica with rock and almost borders on industrial.
"Even up to the point of mixing the songs, we often didn't have a clue what the end result would be," says guitarist Casper Starreveld. "There wasn't any control whatsoever. The road was bumpy, nerve-wracking and intense. [Producer Michael] Beinhorn kept asking the question: have you fully surrendered to this song? We wanted to make a record that would evoke strong reactions, rather than playing it safe. We started digging deeper into ourselves to reveal hidden layers and found all these extreme edges within our musical DNA."
