Knights of Something: new album out on April 1st 2016

Troy Von Balthazar’s 4th studio album was recorded in Berlin and the South of France. He used a combination of an old Tascam 388, tape machine and Protools, a bunch of amazing guitar pedals, and vintage microphones.
It's lo-fi songwriting and recording at it's best, stream of consciousness music structures and powerful lyrics. The songs create a very distinct atmosphere that is really "The TvB sound".

Knights of Something will be released on LP, CD & digital on April 1st 2016:

  • by Vicious Circle in France (distribution: L'autre Distribution)
  • by Siluh Records in Austria (dist: Hoanzl), Switzerland (dist: Irascible), Germany (dist: Cargo), Benelux (dist: Sonic Rendezvous), UK (dist: Plastic Head)
