Ready for more adventures
The flood of superlatives used to describe Saybia’s remarkable victories during the past three years fits the band and the flow of praise almost seems to have no end.

The honour of receiving a “European Border Breaker Award” at the most recent Midem festival in Cannes cements the five musicians’ status as one of the most vibrant names in the Danish rock scene of the current decade.

The date is rapidly approaching when the band will once again put its VW bus into gear and head for the clouds with a new album tucked into the back. The 1st release from the follow-up to the successful debut The Second You Sleep will spice the air waves some time in the next couple of months. The track will be a fine warm-up to the album which will hit retail when the rays of a late summer sun put the finishing touches on summer holidays.

The band – with all the creative juices flowing – recently returned to the homeland following two months of isolation in a studio situated on a quay in the medieval Swedish harbour town Visby on the island Gotland.

The album is more or less complete, though the next few months will be spent putting the finishing touches on the record.

This year’s Roskilde Festival will give fans an exclusive sneak preview when they will be able to experience live all the new songs from the upcoming album, before it hits the music shops.

P.S. The Second You Sleep has already sold 126,000 units at home. Outside Danish borders, the album has found its way into more than 160,000 record collections. The upcoming album will be released in Europe in late summer.

Parat til flere eventyr
De fleste superlativer synes mærkeligt vage og overlæssede på én gang, når bandet SAYBIA’s sejrsgang igennem de sidste 3 år skal beskrives.

Hæderen i kraft af en “European Border Breaker Award”, der blev overrakt ved den nys afholdte Midem-festival i Cannes, stadfæstede de 5 semieksilnyborgenseres nuværende status som et af de mest vibrerende navne på den danske rockscene i indeværende årti.

Tiden nærmer sig, hvor bandets folkevognsrugbrød igen sættes i gear og triller en tur mod himlen med et nyt album i bagagerummet. Første udspil fra opfølgeren til debutsuccessen, “The Second You Sleep”, vil krydre radiobølgerne i løbet af de næste par måneder og varme op til albummet, som vil kunne forventes i butikkerne, når sensommersolens sprøde stråler slikker sårene efter endnu en regntung industriferie.

I skrivende stund er bandet netop kommet tilbage under hjemlige himmelstrøg efter to måneders isolation i studiet, som befinder sig på havnemolen i middelalderbyen Visby på Gotland, Sverige.

Albummet er stort set færdigindspillet, og de næste par måneder vil blivebrugt på at lægge sidste hånd på pladen.

PS: “The Second You Sleep” er på nuværende tidspunkt solgt i 126.000 eksemplarer i Danmark. 160.000 albums har udenfor landets grænser fundet vej til private hjem. Det kommende album har Europa release efter sommeren.
