Laang 冷 (meaning “cold” in Chinese) has released the debut single “我的漂浮屍體” (meaning “My Floating Corpse”) from their upcoming second album “Xinteng” (Sadness, loss) in the form of a lyric video. The band also recently added member moving the band from a solo project to a fully functioning band.
“I am incredibly excited to announce that Laang 冷 is no longer a one-man band, and has now grown to include two incredibly talented Taiwanese musicians. Please join me in welcoming 戴敬緯 (Willy Krieg Tai) on bass and 李婉伶 (Li Wanling) on drums!
戴敬緯 (Willy Krieg Tai) is best known for his work as the bassist of the incredible Taiwanese folk metal band Bloody Tyrant 暴君, a band whose 2015 album served as inspiration for the creation of Laang.
李婉伶 (Li Wanling) is known for her work as the recent drummer of the Taiwanese post-rock band 步行者 Pacers based in Taichung, with new musical projects in the works!”
The music of Laang is based on the horrifying visions seen during a near-death experience of frontman Yang Haitao while medically dead. While the subject matter of the first album “Haiyang” (Ocean) primarily explored feelings of terror, Haitao reports that “Xinteng” will be strongly focused on the melancholic and depressive overtones of life after death. “我的漂浮屍體” gives a first glimpse at the new music of Laang’s second album “Xinteng”.
“Xinteng” will be released worldwide on Austria’s Talheim Records in both physical and digital formats. The band’s previous album is streaming further below.
