Tonzonen Records is pleased to announce the new album form German noisy Post-Rock quartet Volvopenta for a release on February titled Simulacrum.

This Is Not Detroit was the title of an art project in the Ruhr area, and it became so popular because the similarities are so unmistakable. Since 2007, the music of the Ruhrgebiet band from Essen and Mülheim an der Ruhr has been both, a commentary on the environment and resistance to the surrounding tristesse. Volvopenta thrives on the contrast and friction that arises from the interplay between the two guitarists Marcus Kreyhan and Stefan Claudius. André David's unobtrusively refined work on the bass and Kai Spriestersbach's stoic drumming turn the harmonious counter- and coexistence into unity.

With almost earworm- worthy songs like One To Five or Kolonie 56, the new record Simulacrum on the one hand continues musical developments that were already hinted at on the debut LP Yoshiwara with songs like Wolfskull or Short Sleep, but also ventures into more abstract realms, as Flint or Barfly clearly show. The CD contains additional songs like the rather experimental Ghost or the rather dark Central Human Agency, which once again shed a different light on this multi-facetted band.

The LP version of Simulacrum is strictly limited to 200 copies on brown marbled vinyl. The specially made cover was hand-painted and finally glued by the band. Each copy is unique.
