Born May 11th 2015, « The Warning Signal » is the second record of
Parisian quatuor The Long Escape. An album that gives a cold and digital
portrayal of our world. Four years after releasing « The Triptych », the
path taken is alarmist and dark. The band has taken the time to deliver a
right music in which all lines are gathered throughout a groovy rock metal
with a progressive accent.
The songs come one after another and inform us that distress is here.
Cries and crashes alert us on our ultra modern societies becoming: The
Warning Signal reflects the opposition between natural light and shadow of
our hidden lives.
The Long Escape is known for its sound signature tinged by an alloy made
of hyper energetic riffs and calm/gloomy passages.
Kimo, its frontman says: « we wanted the same cohesion in reading those
titles than our precedent effort without forgetting the melody. Everything
has to be connected and independent at the same time ».
The Mystery in which lies underneath anticipation, cultivated by the band,
adds a significant class to The Warning Signal musical ensemble: what is
it about the triangle? Does it have to be compared with the one inversed
on the first album? No certainty, the band lets the doubt in
suspension…But the parallel with a warning triangle announcing a danger
seems like a dreadful self-evident fact. What about the digital lines
drawn on concrete blocs and erasing as the sun approaches? Should we read
a hidden message filled with hope?
With The Warning Signal, The Long Escape breathes life to a captivating
music overflowed with sound diversities and concocts its proper formula.
Widely acclaimed by critics, the band will shortly go conquer the crowd
and do what they do best: invite the largest number of people to a journey
