The violent Gods

It's never too soon to start frothing excitedly about a new album from The Young Gods, so it's worth sticking May 7th into some sort of calendar. That's when the band are releasing Super Ready/Fragmente. It's got a gun on the cover, and viol, explains Franz Treichler:

“In Switzerland, recent statistics have shown that we can account for the exact number of dogs whereas no one has any idea – even approximately – of the amount of weapons. The Young Gods exist to suggest and share emotions and impressions without conveying a specific message. The three of us believe in the huge suggestive power of music. The violent aspect of the album is our own way of reacting to the current socio-political context.”

Sadly, Franz doesn't reveal how many dogs there are in Switzerland.
