LICHO Unveil New Track & Announce New Album
“Ciuciubabka” set for release on 19 March
New track & music video available HERE
Licho will release its third full-length album “Ciuciubabka” on 19 March 2022 via Pagan Records. Ahead of the premiere, the band has released a music video to the track “Jeszcze raz w las”.
The video was made by Karol Pałka (the director of the award-winning “Bukolika” film), and the song includes a guest appearance by Ania Grąbczewska (Szklane Oczy) on vocals.
The word “ciuciubabka” translates to the children’s game “blind man’s buff” or “tag” in which one person has a cloth tied over their eyes and tries to catch the others. The album tells the story of what can be seen when blindfolded, the game of hiding and catching what has fallen from the sky. It is also about, as always, walking towards the light. On foot, on horseback, by car, by spirit.
Musically, Licho continues in black metal style as on previous albums, while also taking inspiration from other genres and quoting the poet Jarosław Marek Rymkiewicz. The “Ciuciubabka” album cover features a painting by Wilhelm Sasnal “Polak”.
The album was recorded at Nebula Studio, Czyściec Studio and Garderoba Czorta. Maciej Wasio (Myslovitz among others) is responsible for the mix, and Jaakko Viitalähde (Oranssi Pazuzu among others) for the mastering.
Licho was founded in 2011 in Sanok, Poland by Szturpak. The current line-up has been in operation since 2017 and consists of musicians also known from projects such as Koniec Pola, -S-, Wędrowcy~Tułacze~Zbiegi and Gruzja.
