Details of the upcoming debut full-length album from Selvans, which is due for release on Avantgarde Music in October, have been revealed. Titled “Lupercalia”, the album is composed of six tracks, each lasting an average of ten minutes, and the band have released a video teaser which includes exerpts of each of the tracks. The video can be seen at https://youtu.be/ESHCLMGrBmA.
“Lupercalia” was recorded at the Faunalia Studios and in Patrizio Tamborriello’s Soluzioni Audio. The lineup on the album comprises Selvans Haruspex on keyboards, traditional instruments, vocals and programming, and Sethlans Fulguriator on guitars and bass. The album will be available both as a CD in A5 format and digitally. Tracklisting as follows:
3- O Clitumne!
4- Hirpi Sorani
The new album continues SELVANS’ idea of combining music, lyrics and aesthetics in such a way as to recreate the folklore of Italy’s ancient peoples. As a consequence, the visuals, both in terms of album artwork and live sets, is an important aspect for the band. For “Lupercalia” SELVANS has once again turned to Diletta of E.B.A. Art, whose first collaboration occurred on the band’s five-track EP “Clangores Plenilunio”, which was released on Avantgarde Music in February of this year. Diletta’s artwork brings to life the designs of founder and frontman Selvans Haruspex in a much lauded way.
