Toundra’s 4th album to be ‘smoother’

Toundra have confirmed the release of their fourth album on January 26 via Superball – and they say it showcases a more elaborate sound than their earlier output.

The Spanish outfit have been working on IV for more than a year, but bassist Alberto Tocados believes it’s been worthwhile.

He says: “We’ve learned smoother ways of writing our music and approaching the recording. IV summarises everything about the story of Toundra, and takes our sound to a more elaborated level. New atmospheres gather with the same electricity and energy that has always been a defining element of our music.”

Toundra tour Italy, the Czech Republic, Germany, the Netherlands and Luxembourg next month. IV is the follow-up to 2012’s III.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
