The last we heard of The Blue Angel Lounge, the group abruptly split up in July 2014.

Since then, its been mostly quiet on the western front, as far as the reclusive band from Hagen were concerned. And then suddenly, out of nowhere a cryptic ‘Youtube’ message: “The Blue Angle Lounge. Double LP. In Times. March 2016.” And as quickly as it appeared, it disappeared again.

But this much can now be confirmed, in March by containing both carefully selected demos of their three previous studio albums „The Blue Angel Lounge“ (2008), „Narcotica“ (2010) and „A Sea Of Trees“ (2014) as well as previously unreleased recordings, In Times reflects the coherent work & progress of the band between 2006 und 2012 and offers an unfettered image of the band at its œuvre-peak.

Thus belies the purpose of the album within the very nature of its title: The name derives from the eponymous piece „In Times“, which appeared exclusively on the 8MM Musik compilation that was released in 2013 on occasion of the label's ten year anniversary and was originally composed during the „Narcotica“ sessions in 2010.

In Times is out on March 25, 2016 via A Recordings in collaboration with 8MM Musik whose name is inextricably linked with The Blue Angel Lounge: The Berlin-hailing label has been in charge since 2009 and with In Times, presents the fourth LP of this exceptional band.

Whether In Times marks the rebirth of one of Germany best bands of the last decade remains unclear. So far this much is certain however, the founding members Nils Ottensmeyer and Dennis Melster will embark on a string of european acoustic shows the end of March.
