Electronic group VNV Nation has made an announcement regarding their plans for 2013, which includes a new album as well as a album of older songs rearranged to feature classical arrangements.
Regarding the new album, the title has been set as Transnational and it is scheduled for release in September of this year. It is the followup to 2011′s Automatic (review). Tour dates are being planned through late 2014 and the first dates will be released soon.
Last year, VNV Nation performed at the Gothic Meets Klassik festival. There were plans to record and release the tracks that VNV Nation performed with an orchestra. However, a problem with the in-house recording equipment rendered the tracks unusable.
As a result, Ronan Harris has begun with an arranger to make an album of VNV Nation songs scored for orchestra and which will include the tracks performed at the festival as well as additional songs.
Harris will also be performing a section of VNV Nation songs on this year’s Gothic Cruise alongside a classical pianist.
Harris ends the VNV Nation post by saying that more news will be released over the next few months. Personally, I’m hoping for a live DVD, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
