LE-VOYAGE, new album
Almost 3 years after the release of their last album, REVOLUTION, EXXASENS is back with their 7th studio album, LE-VOYAGE.
This new album, composed entirely during the pandemic, consists of a total of 8 cuts where the maxim is to make the listener travel to hitherto unexplored places within the EXXASENS universe. Progressive themes with a direct influence of contemporary bands such as Leprous or Sohen, introduction of new elements in the sound production such as horns or string sections and a point of aggressiveness in the drums where syncopated rhythms and double basses predominate, along with the elements classics present in EXXASENS productions, guitars with long echoes and reverberations, evocative synthesizers and heavy but at the same time light bass bases, make this album perhaps the most mature in the band’s history.
This new album has being released by Dunk! Records, Aloudmusic and Exxarecords.
EXXASENS is a post-rock/instrumental-rock/cosmic-rock band which
started as a do-it-yourself project in 2007. The band has written six original
albums, with their seventh studio album coming out this September 2022.
The group began as a project which officially became a band later in 2011
with the release of their third album, ELEVEN MILES. The EXXASENS sound
is most closely defined as a mixture of many styles, where guitars with long
echoes, spatial synthesizers, and well-defined and forceful rhythmic basses
predominate. Throughout their music, influential bands such as Pink Floyd,
U2, or The Cure and instrumental bands like Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai
or more progressive like Porcupine Tree are apparent and help guide the music.
After setting their sound and establishing themselves as a band, they hit the
road, touring around Spain, Europe, and Russia. They have performed
numerous concerts at a national and European level, sharing the stage with
influential bands within the genre such as Toundra (Spain), Maybeshewill (UK),
65daysofstatic (UK), Tides of Nebula (Poland), Sleepmakeswaves (Australia),
Alright the Captain (UK), I’m waiting for your last summer (Russia) or The best
Pessimist (Ukraine). They have also been at some of the most prestigious
festivals at the European level, Astral Fest (Moscow, St. Petersburg,
Yekaterinburg), AMFest (Barcelona, Spain), Dunk! Festival (Belgium), Festival
Cruïlla (Barcelona), Primavera Sound (Barcelona), Bilbao BBK Live (Bilbao),
ProgPower (Baarlo NL), Arctangent (Bristol, UK), as well as touring Europe and the UK on a couple of occasions and making sold-out venues such as La Sol in Madrid or Sala Apolo2 and Sala Bikini in Barcelona and having appeared in such prestigious magazines as Visions Germany, Prog! UK or Sound World.
High off of their touring success, things cooled down in 2016 as his founder, Jordi Ruiz, started another projects and needed to disconnect from the band. Later in 2019, Jordi reconnected and started writing music again, ultimately putting together the sixth album,REVOLUTION. As soon as they got ready to tour again all together, the COVID pandemic began, which threw a wrench in their reunion tour. As a result of this journey, Jordi has written and recorded their newest album, released on September 9, 2022. At the end of 2022 the band is renewed with 2 new members, Xavi Olmos on bass and Cristian Mira on drums and they leave the Oriols Planells (Drums), Sergio Ledesma (Sintetizadores) y Cesc Cespdes(bajo).
