French outfit Lazuli have announced that their new studio album will arrive next month.

The follow-up to 2016’s Nos âmes saoules will be titled Saison 8 and is set to arrive on March 20.

A statement on the release reads: “Each new album comes as the new season of a TV series and each song as an episode of our lives.

Saison 8 – the eighth album of Lazuli – arrives like spring, like a young shoot on an icy ground, definitely sticking to the darkness of its time, anchored on the ground but desperately attracted by the sky.”

Following the album launch, Claude Leonetti, Gédéric Byar, Dominique Leonetti, Romain Thorel and Vincent Barnavol will head out on tour across Europe.

Saison 8 is now available for pre-order. Find the cover art and tracklist below, along with Lazuli’s 2018 tour dates.
