True minstrels
of the post-rock genre have become few and far between as of late. KLONE,
hailing from the picturesque city of Poitiers, France, successfully satisfies
that void by combining a myriad of influences from six talented members into one
cohesive and satisfying progressive stew with mature, otherworldly rock
overtones.

When a fan of
progressive music hears the word “France”, their heads perk with mental images
of groups such as Gojira, Uneven Structure and Hacride. Now
another can be added (to the top) of that list, but this time, think more along
the lines of Steven Wilson, Anathema or even Opeth. On the
cusp of releasing their sixth album Here Comes The
Sun
on April
27th via Klonosphere/Pelagic Records – 2015 is the breakout
year for KLONE.

KLONE’s Here
Comes The Sun
is self-produced by the band in conjunction with longtime
co-producer Francis Castes and sees the band evolve from their heavy metal roots
to a more ethereal post-rock sound, without losing one bit of intensity. Driven
by heavy riffing as much as by delay-soaked guitar-reverie and careful vocal
melodies, melancholia defines the band’s sound while leaving room for a much
broader emotional spectrum.

When you take a
closer look at KLONE’s discography (below), their progress appears like a
logical evolution: each album is unique, and each one has served to make the
follow-up less predictable. After releasing the sublime The Dreamer’s
Hideaway
in 2012 with more progressive outlines, the current incarnation
of KLONE offers a new journey, more captivating and meditative than ever.
With Here Comes the Sun, KLONE gives each melody time to
unfold, leading the listener to a peculiar universe where the sun is the central
theme. Here Comes The Sun gives a whole new dimension to what
KLONE
have offered before.

KLONE features
central masterminds Yann Ligner (vocals) and Guillaume Bernard (guitars), with
musical reinforcement from guitarist Aldrick Guadagnino, bassist Jean Etienne
Maillard, saxophonist Matthieu Metzger and drummer Florent Marcadet (also of
recognized French progressive metal group Hacride).

Guitarist
Guillaume Bernard states, “We really worked hard on this album – it was a
real challenge for us to not repeat what we did on our previous albums. This new
album is emotionally intense and this music was written to touch the people in
their hearts – a sort of “call to meditation”.”

With Here
Comes The Sun
, the band’s songwriting has reached the next level.
KLONE have opened for bands like Gojira, King’s X and
Orphaned Land, and have played the main stage at Hellfest. Here
Comes The Sun
is the album that will see KLONE be thrust into the
limelight. It’s just too good to be ignored – take a listen, and decide for
yourself.
