Alcest waste no time. The band's mastermind Neige announced via Facebook today that he and Winterhalter are already working on a new album, which they will start recording in March 2013.

Neige posted the following: "Hello there! Some days ago Winterhalter and I recorded demos for the next Alcest album, for which I have almost finished the songwriting. Only a few arrangements are missing, and the lyrics as well... In our case they always come late in the process. As I said in recent interviews, you can expect something different from Alcest's previous releases."

"I don't think there are any metal music elements anymore, though a lot of very intense parts and dynamics are still there. Things are just done in another way, and the core remains the same. That album will come back to the nostalgic side of Alcest, it's very dreamy, aquatic and a bit less progressive than the last two albums. Melodies are taking their time to grow, if you see what I mean. I feel very excited about these songs and this new approach feels very refreshing to me. I also can tell that the album will be recorded next March in Iceland at Sundlaugin, Sigur Rós' studios, with producer Birgir Jón Birgisson. There will also be guests appearances - more infos about this will come later. I will keep you posted!"

Though I like the metal parts in his music best, I'll check it out nevertheless, I can hardly think he'll dissappoint.

No metal elements anymore? Here I was hoping for the opposite scenario but instead we get 100% dreamy fairytale nonsense. Oh well...I hope my skepticism is unjustified in the end.

So Souvenirs is 100% fairytale nonsense?

Well I guess this should be interesting, Can't really judge based on what he said, however I'll be waiting for this impatiently

Eh, if there's no metal I really don't care to listen to it.

Yes, that is by far the weakest album by the band in my opinion.

Well then, that is the problem. I personally think it's up to par with Écailles, slightly worse than Le Secret and better than Les Voyages so I don't mind this direction. I just hope that it will be better than Les Voyages.

Highly disagree... Pretty strong album and even more if it is compared to the latest one.
