Arabs in Aspic + Nik Turner = True
Arabs in Aspic will play two shows at the Porto Antico Progfest in Genoa, Italy on July 15th. One regular Arabs-show and another one as the backing band of legendary Hawkwind-er Nik Turner, playing classic Hawkwind material.
Genova concert confirmed!
We will be playing in Genova, Italy July 15th. This will be the effective release concert for our new album, due this summer.
Arabs in Aspic are featured in the russian music magazine InRock! Read the interview in your nearest InRock music magazine.
We've added a bunch of reviews from around the globe at the reviews page.
The new album is now available across the Internet, both on cd and vinyl. Click the image and go directly to Black Widow records, or send us a message, Google it or click the "Where to buy" tab in the menu!
The new single, "Sad Without You" is out on Crispin Glover Records! In addition to the single track itself, it includes a version of an instrumental track from the album - with italian lyrics! Grab a piece over at their website! We have also released a 7" with the title track(s) from "Pictures in a Dream", including an acoustic version as well as an unreleased track with vocals by the legendary Rune Sundby of Ruphus. Get that one too from Crispin Glover! In addition we've made some very limited edition t-shirts with the front cover print of "Victim of Your Father's Agony" which will only be on sale on our release in Trondheim Dec. 19th. Oh, btw, the new album is available for streaming on Spotify and through other channels!
So we are back gome again for the second time this summer, after doing shows in France and Italy. Two weeks apart, these extended weekends have brought us great moments, fantastic music, old and new friends, lots of new fans and some of the best laughs ever!
Thanks to everyone at Crescendo for having us back. Really starting to feel like members of the family now, so we want to come every year, and play Fridays @ 20:00 ;) A special thank you to our great friend and on-site happiness consultant, TorgeirT, who joined us and helped on the trip to France. Too bad you couldn't make Italy.
Also a big hand goes out to the amazing bands, crew and people in Veruno, at the 2 Days Prog+1 festival. This was a fantastic welcoming for us on our first gig in Italy. Schedule us every year, Fridays @ 20:00 per favore ;)
Below are some pics from both festivals, live and private:

We are very excited to be sharing stage with Banco del mutuo Soccorso, Beardfish, Magma, Yuka & Chronoship, Maschine, The Pineapple Thief, Barclay James Harvest, Sylvan, Syncage, Runaway Totem and Zuffanti at the 2DaysOfProg+1 festival in Veruno, Italy, Sept. 4th-6th! I think neither of us ever thought we'd see Banco or Magma live, but I guess we got lucky this time! Really looking forward to seeing our friends from Beardfish and Maschine again, so get ready to party!
