New release from: DARK SKY – Signs Of The Time (August 4, 2023)
Dark Sky is back with Signs Of The Time!
Founded as a school band in Rottweil/Germany in the early 80s, DARK SKY was on the international map for the first time in the mid-90s with their debut album Believe It, which had big success in Asia, especially in Malaysia.
2002 saw the release of the second album Edge Of Time, which brought them on the map in their home country as well. It was followed by Living & Dying, Empty Faces and Initium, which showed the band their harder side without losing their trademark melodies. After the release of their live album/DVD in 2018, the band began to collect ideas for the new album. Since we all know what happened in 2020, it is no surprise that it took so long to finish the album. During the pandemic, all band members except founding member and main man Frank Breuninger left the band and ended their musical careers. With Harold Merkx on keyboards, Jadro Bastalic on guitar and Francesco Pisana on bass he quickly found new musicians which brought fresh wind into the band.
Signs Of The Time again was produced by the band’s long-time producer and friend Markus Teske (Symphony X, Vanden Plas). Since DARK SKY has a long friendship with the German uprising, fresh superstars KISSIN’ DYNAMITE, Frank decided to write some songs with them. “Forgiveness” is based on an old idea from KD singer Hannes Braun, which Frank finished and made it into a song. Former KD drummer Andi Schnitzer (who played a few shows with DARK SKY as their fill-in drummer) wrote the lyrics for the song “You and Me” and helped with the lyrics for “Heroes On Ice”, the hymn for the band’s favorite ice hockey team Schwenninger Wild Wings. Signs Of The Time is the band’s heaviest output so far and the beginning of a new journey!
