CONCEPTION: "State of Deception" Deluxe Edition + "Silent Crying 2.0."22.04.2022
Digital Release of Album's Deluxe Edition + Video for "Silent Crying 2.0"
Norwegian hard rockers Conception have released the much-expanded deluxe version of their State of Deception album digitally on April 22nd. The CD version will be made available the following week. The album features a host of brand new recordings, including exclusive new songs, a number of live performances and re-recordings of some of the most popular tracks from their back catalogue. The campaign will be led by the release of a video for Silent Crying 2.0.
The deluxe version of State of Deception is an acknowledgement from the band to address the fans’ call for making more material available, and has been financed exclusively via the band’s unique direct-to-fan relationship over the course of the last twelve months. “We’ve been lucky enough to have such loyal fans,” vocalist Roy Khan observes. “They have been incredibly generous in supporting us, and we’ve tried really hard to acknowledge that with this album.”
Speaking of the brand new version of Silent Crying 2.0 guitarist Tore Østby revealed “this was originally written to be performed with a music class I was teaching in elementary school! Then we got a record deal first time around, and my brother persuaded me to play it to the band. Roy loved it and completed it with his personal touch”. Roy explains further: “When you revisit and analyze old songs there’s often something you would have done differently, but this collection of words came out the way it was supposed to the first time around. I know this track means a lot to many people and it is also a favorite of mine, showing how light and beauty can be found even in the darkest place.”
Conception will also be returning to live performance once again.
