AUTOMATIC EMPIRE - NORTH AMERICAN TOUR 2017


It all started with an invitation to play at a youthclub in Germany, to support their organisation. The next night was going to be a sold out Compendium show in an old machine factory in Munich, so this was going to be quite the contrast. The idea to play two classic albums had been talked about for a while, so we took the opportunity and performed two albums "Automatic" and "Empires", crammed onto the stage, with minimal lights, at a small packed club. It was a return to the places where we'd started out. The show was electric. There were lots of requests to repeat the show so we played a series of small clubs around Europe, having the same experience show after show. Obviously, North American fans didn't want to be left out, as the many messages let us know. With a show like this, playing in small clubs, we wanted to take it everywhere. Finding sufficient time in the year wasn't easy but we managed, and packed in as many shows as possible. Our special guest on the tour is iVardensphere, performing as a one-person act on this run, improvising an energetic beat driven show with his modular synthesizers.

VNV NATION AND THE BABELSBERG FILM ORCHESTRA

" R E S O N A N C E "

 


The Resonance albums features songs from various VNV Nation albums, arranged purely for voice and orchestra, and recorded with the world renowned Babelsberg Film Orchestra, at their studios in Potsdam, near Berlin. This has undoubtedly been the largest and most complicated production yet for a VNV release, but the results are breathtaking. The album was released on May 15th 2017 in a number of different formats - CD-Digibook, regular CD-digipack and deluxe limited edition boxset with 6 x 10inch vinyl discs, a CD of the album and a 32 page book, in a hardcover box with gold print. The album reached #7 in the German Media Control Album Charts, #1 on Amazon's Classical Chart, #3 on the Billboard Classical Crossover Chart and #4 on the Billboard Classical Music Chart.

 

TRANSNATIONAL

The last full VNV Nation studio album, "Transnational", was released in Europe on Oct 11th 2013 and in North America. The album reached #9 in the German Album Charts and hit #1 in the German Alternative Charts. It has charted high in other countries and hit #1 on a number of alternative charts which is an amazing result. We feel very honoured by the response and want to thank all of those who helped the album achieve this result.

FULLY AUTOMATED

VNV Nation's Album "AUTOMATIC" was released on September 16th, 2011 and entered the official German Top 100 Album Charts at #8. It also entered at #9 in the German CD Album Sales Chart. It hit #1 on iTunes Canada, #3 on Musicload in German, #7 on Amazon Germany and we're still waiting for info about how high it got on iTunes Germany but apparently, it was pretty good too. This is incredible news. It is an album that exceeded our ambitions in every sense and we're more than proud of the album. We would even dare to say that it's our favourite so far, though comments like this are heresy for some :)

To celebrate the release, we are giving away a free track called "Control" from the album, which you can download or share on your own site or FB page (click on the title of the track below to go to our soundcloud page). There is also an album preview that you can play here or download or share.
