Tomorrow sees the release and first launch of the new LARK album, GONG IS STRUCK, at Trinity in Cape Town. The album, which took two years to complete and is written by Inge Beckmann and produced by Paul Rez, is the band’s third studio album.
GONG IS STRUCK, the name which was inspired by a quotation Inge read in a book on spiritualism, took two years to complete. All pre-production and guide vocals were done long distance via emails and Skype. Vocals, drums and bass were tracked in South Africa at Sound & Motion Studio and MEME Studio. The album then was mixed in SA and London and mastered in London by Nick Watson and Tim Debney at Fluid Mastering.
The album can be described as more tribal and slightly heavier than any of LARK’s previous releases and includes inspiration from themes such as mythology, immortality, gods, tribes, gender, war, superstition and witchcraft. GONG IS STRUCK also includes a cover of the famous theme song ‘We Are Growing’ by Margaret Zingana, which is also the band’s first radio single from the album. It has been submitted to radio stations nationwide for play listing.
