2017 is here and will be a quiet year for Albireon. With no records nor gigs in sight we are slowly working with new music and words in order to be ready for 2018, when Albireon will turn 20 years old.
What a fantastic trip it was for me, Carlo and Stefano!
We will celebrate this very great goal with a new experimental album dedicated to some unlucky ones and maybe a special album of rare items and collaborations aswell.
In the meantime you can still grab our records directly from the band by writing to email@example.com (better prices!) or visit the discogs page:
The picture was taken by our great friend Bard of Oberon at the Garage De Luxe in Munich on 30.10.2016, and will be the iconic image of this short 2-gigs mini tour across Europe supporting Sol Invictus.
The two gigs, at Serraglio Club in Milan (29.10.2016) and Garage De Luxe in Munich (30.10.2016) were a full success for Albireon who played a selection of songs mainly taken from “L’Inverno E L’Aquilone” and “Le Fiabe Dei Ragni Funamboli” for a warm and supporting audience.
The Munich gig featured Death In Rome as very special opening act and Lorenzo Borghi on “La Spusa De Striun” drumming with Davide, Stefano and Carlo.
Goes without saying that was a pleasure and an honour to share stage and the long roadtrip through the autumnal Dolomites Alps with legendary Sol Invictus and we will treasure forever this amazing experience.
Albireon setlist was the same for both gig :
- Canto Del Vento Lontano
- Nel Nido Dei Ragni Funamboli
- Through Winter Fires
- Gli Aironi
- La Spusa De Striun
- Prima Del Buio
- L’Inverno E L’Aquilone
- Sentieri Di Crinale
- Mr.Nightbird Hates Blueberries
- Il Deserto Dei Tartari
Our deepest gratitude goes to all who made this experience possible! You rule!
Albireon will support Neo Folk Legend Sol Invictus for a two-dates mini tour on 29-30 October 2016 in Milan (Serraglio Club-Gothic Rock) and Munchen (Garage De Luxe-Looney Runes). Munchen gig will also feature a very special guest appearance by Death In Rome.
