The beginning of 2018 saw him undertake his first steps abroad with a solo tour in Germany in January and a second tour as support of the Swedish band Black River Delta in April. In the meantime, he continued working on his sophomore album ‘Murder’, which will be released in the fall of 2018 (by Radicalis) and will contain 10 previously unreleased tracks, songs and lyrics by Andrea Bignasca.
Having partly surrendered the more bluesy traits of ‘Gone’, Andrea Bignasca now veers into a more rock-based narrative, strengthened and emboldened by his live experience and by the ensuing solidification of the band. Unlike ‘Gone’, ‘Murder’ has been arranged for band in its entirety and recorded by the band: Andrea Bignasca, vocals and guitars; Giacomo Reggiani, drums; Gian-Andrea Costa, bass; Oliver Illi, keys.
The new music of ‘Murder’ perfectly stages a violent battle for one’s heart, with victory sometimes only a breath away, at other times completely out of sight.
