"...a sonic masterpiece...a truly mind-altering journey put to record." – Cryptic Rock

LAIBACH have released the video for “Vor Sonnen-Aufgang,” taken from their latest album Also Sprach Zarathustra, out now on Mute. The video is directed by the German visual artist Michael Saup. Watch

Laibach will be touring Also Sprach Zarathustra in November this year – starting in Budapest on November 4 with a date in London on November 23. Full details below.

Laibach’s infamous
 North Korean tour (in 2015, on the anniversary of the DPRK’s liberation from Japan) is documented in Liberation Day, a film directed by Morten Traavik and described by MOJO as“a humorous, disturbing, illuminating and sometimes moving immersion into an anomalous communist mirror-world …” while Vulture Hound said, "Imagine George Orwell directing Spinal Tap and you’re somewhere close to the mark." The film is currently screening at film festivals worldwide including a free showing at Socrates Sculpture Park in New York City on July 19. For additional screenings and details go to http://www.liberationday.film/

The music for Also Sprach Zarathustra was originally composed for a theatrical production of Thus Spoke Zarathustra, based on Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophical novel of the same name. Thus Spoke Zarathustra was directed by Matjaž Berger for the Anton Podbevšek Theatre (APT) in Novo Mesto, Slovenia.

The
 Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid is currently hosting a retrospective of Laibach art and the NSK.Laibach Kunst 1980 + Neue Slowenische Kunst 1984 - 1992: From Kapital to Capital will run until January 8, 2018. Watch a short film here.
