HVOB announce album TOO, Listen to first track ‘Bruise’ + Tour Dates

Following four studio albums and one live album, HVOB are about to release their sixth album: TOO is an angry, tender, vulnerable, determined account of a generation’s search for life. The album explores extremes in concept, content and sound. The first track from the album to be released is “Bruise”. The album unfolds over a period of six months.

am i too cold / am i too old / am i not good for you
am i too quiet / am i too tired / am i too much for you

– From “Capture Casa”, TOO, HVOB

TOO takes a new direction: with their fifth studio album, electronic duo HVOB breaks with the tradition of releasing the entire album following the advance release of a number of singles. The eight tracks from TOO will be released individually and sporadically. This way, the album grows into an eventual whole over a period of six months.

TOO is dedicated to the state of mind of a generation in search of inner and outer belonging: the album captures a life in the dichotomy of one’s own and other people’s expectations, in the feeling of not living up to these expectations, in renewed attempts to free oneself from these expectations.

TOO is both HVOB‘s harshest and softest album to date. In terms of sound, Anna Müller and Paul Wallner explore a space of extremes between departure and retreat, between determination and self-doubt.

The first track from the new HVOB album „Bruise” is released on November 18th:
