Following their critically acclaimed first album ‘On Track’, Damanek are set to release their second album ‘In Flight’ on the GEP label on the 5th October 2018.
‘In Flight’ is another a genre-defying collection of sophisticated songs that again manage to combine impressive technical proficiency with catchy hooks and vast soundscapes. Sean Timms’ sleek production adds to the overall sense of quality and class on this impressive second album. The new album has been described as “Dark and Dense, Intense and Immense!” and includes the new 3 part epic ‘Big Eastern’ taking the listener on an emotive journey from East to West: from the poorest rural lands of China to the West Coast of the USA.
