In a recent interview with, Negură Bunget's mastermind Negru (Gabriel Mafa) talks about working on new material and lifts the curtain on the mystery of the the band's new lineup.

Negru says: "At this point we already have a full line-up and in this formula we started working on new materials and prepare live gigs. At the very core there are some musicians who will be involved in all the projects of the band. To this we'll add another layer of musicians who will join us just for special events and studio projects. This more flexible approach will allow us to increase the use of authentic traditional instruments adding new elements and to explore new musical territories, both live and in studio. The line-up looks like this:

Gabriel Mafa / Negru - drums / percussions / cimbalom / xylophone
Tibor Kati - vocals / guitar / keyboards / programming
Adrian Neagoe / Oq - guitar / vocals / keyboards
Petrică Ionuţescu - pipe / panpipe / traditional instruments
Ovidiu Corodan - bass
Vartan Garabedian - percussions / vocals
Mihai Neagoe / Mtz- sound design
Daniel Dorobanţu - visual design

He said about the new album Tău: "The whole audio-video trilogy concept to which Tău belongs was entirely developed by me, and so was the whole ideology of the band since the very beginning. Starting from this concept, on the musical side we were working on several songs with the previous line-up, mainly Fulmineos and I. Some of the stuff was partially recorded, but far from its final shape. We won't use any of these recordings in the future - definitely. But we will for sure use the concept itself, both musically (with a new line-up and new approach) and visually. By now things have evolved very much in this respect and soon we'll be able to come up with more details."

I bet there will be some lineup changes before release date... Quite curious about this album though.

He's gonna try to keep up with Dordeduh lol... guess with the next album we'll see if Sol Faur and Hupogrammus were really the ones who kept the soul of the band alive or not.
