More information: Russian Prog up and comers Velcrocranes have come a long way from their early beginnings as a group. Getting their start in 2012 as a garage band, it wasn’t until they discovered the music of Porcupine Tree and the expansive, malleable world of progressive rock that their true sound came into focus.
On their long-awaited debut full-length, 'What If I Die', Velcrocranes remain true to the foundation that they’ve carefully laid in recent years while showing little restraint for reaching into the bag of tricks to delight their listeners.
Speaking about the creative drive behind the themes explored on the album the band says, “We imagine the main idea of the album as changing as the listener goes along. Our goal was to draw a parallel to the way your understanding of life’s meaning, your values and choices, and your perception of death change during your lifetime”.
Features guest appearance from Adam Holzman (Steven Wilson). Mastered by Steve Kitch (The Pineapple Thief).
This is the Limited CD with bonus track edition in 6-panel pocket pac with 12-page booklet.
