In an interview with Romanian webzine Carta De Nisip, Alcest frontman Neige announces the title for its third album, Les Voyages De L'âme (Trans: The Soul's Journey), due out later this year through Prophecy Productions.

About the album, Neige comments: "The next album is already recorded and will contain 8 songs. It's a longer album than the previous ones, very rich and having a lot of different atmospheres. It will contain harsh vocals but will surely be the last one having these kind of vocals parallel to the clean ones. It is called Les Voyages De L'âme, which could be translated to "The Soul's Journey" and concerning concept of this album its title is saying a lot about it..."

Eight songs and a more consistent running time. Glad to hear it: "Ecailles De Lune" was really beautiful but a bit shrunken during its second half.

I don't really get that, does it mean he will not mix them like Dani Filth does or what?

Cant w8 4 this.

I guess he means that after this one, he won't use harsh vocals at all?

This is great, I really liked the previous albums.

Oh man awesome!

Although I really like his harsh vocals they will be missed.

Awesome news, really liked "Ecailles de Lune", but didnt quite understand what he meant by "It will contain harsh vocals but will surely be the last one having these kind of vocals parallel to the clean ones", does he mean its the last record with Harsh vocals or what??

I am not going to think about the harsh vocals statement now , i will just be looking forward to this

No, you must keep buying his albums. Because without your help, he'll go bankrupt.

The way I interpreted his comment was that clean and harsh vocals will never be mixed after this. I don't think he is necessarily ABANDONING harsh vocals; maybe he needs to make albums with lighter vocals like the debut again, and then maybe he'll consider using harsh vocals only for some albums.

As for the new album coming this year, this is excellent news. I hope it moves on to harsher atmospheres, while retaining some of that dreaminess that was so successful on Ecailles.

Now that I read more carefully, it does seems like you're right on what you're saying.
Either way, awesome news.

I seriously doubt he'll be doing harsh vocals again going by this report. The way it's worded makes it sound like harsh vocal's swansong.

Which would suck A LOT since he has amazing harsh vocals... I love his clean vocals as well so it's not like his music will go downhill because of it.

Well let's hope that's not the case. Personally I wasn't a great fan of the last album so I won't be put off if subsequent albums are vocally exclusive.

It's not that I always buy a thousand copies of his albums

You can still listen to his shrieks with Lantlos and hopefully Old Silver Key
