Do you want to be "saved?"
Well, you can be in two weeks, as Soulsavers will release their highly anticipated fourth studio album The Light the Dead See through Mute (US/Canada) on May 22. Featuring vocals and lyrics by Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode, the record is the follow-up to 2009's critically acclaimed album Broken.
Venturing out from the studio to the road, Soulsavers were invited to support Depeche Mode on the European leg of the band's vast 2010 Tour of the Universe. Here, the seeds of The Light the Dead See were sewn. With Gahan penning lyrics for the music and recording his own vocals in New York, then Machin building up the results into fully-formed and arranged epics, the international project was a case of "chemistry working." The album was mastered at Abbey Road earlier this year.
"There was no real script," said Rich Machin of the album. "It just rolled and rolled; it was effortless."
Added Dave Gahan, "Everything about it was relatively unplanned, surprising: a magical thing. We were a perfect match and I'm very, very excited about this record."
