Laibach Announce New DVD Volk Dead In Trbovlje

Laibach announce details of a new DVD, Volk Dead In Trbovlje (out September 2, 2008). Laibach will also return to the US for their first U.S. tour in four years in September. The DVD was filmed during the extensive tour based on Laibach's acclaimed album, Volk, a collection of interpretations of national anthems which includes the national anthem for NSK, the State in time without territory and national boundaries which Laibach have been linked with since its formation in 1992.

On the album, Laibach uncovering a common ground linking the nations, a shared patriotic sentiment based around the bloody and violent foundations of nation which here, can be heard in the lyrics and pomp of the largely hymnal tracks. By reinterpreting the music and translating the lyrics of each anthem, the band have not only shown us this common ground, they have also offered up a very pertinent comment on today's political situation and a warning for future generations.

Volk Dead In Trbovlje shows their concert in Trbovlje, Slovenia, the industrial town associated with the birthplace of Laibach in 1980.

As a bonus, the DVD offers a collection of some of the most relevant screens that were projected during the show, animated stories of some of the most important songs. The Laibach music videos associated with Volk are part of the content too. The project ends with a tour medley, a short video commentary as a souvenir from some of the places where Laibach have toured with Volk.

"Pop music is for sheep and we are shepherds disguised as wolves" - Laibach
