Drunken Butterfly have recorded already four Albums: Pornocoma, Aporia, Maggio Giardinaio and L’ultima Risata; it is with their last Album that they have landed themselves a recording deal with IRMA in 2010. “L’ultima Risata” was an album conceived as Live background music for the self titled Movie directed by W. F. Murnau (Germany, 1924) following a request by the Provincial Youth Association of Macerata (their home town) (A.R.C.I. Provinciale) while a Cinema Event (MutoMaggio) was being organised in town to celebrate the best Silent Films ever produced. Thanks to the success received during the event, Drunken Butterfly decide to reproduce and Tour the Show around Italy and to Record a new Album with all the music written for the above mentioned Film. The Tour proves to be very successful playing throughout Italy’s main Cities, and, for the first time visiting also Austria.
Since the beginning of 2012, Drunken Butterfly have been busy writing and recording their new Album ‘Epsilon’ which will be released in Autumn by IRMA records. Epsilon represents for the Band a return to their roots sound but with a mature experience gained with more than 10 years of activity. After exploring in the last few years the territories of post-rock in it’s most dilated areas, psychedelics and based on harmonics plots, Epsilon is characterized by a powerful rhythmic foundation on top of which, obscure, dry and sharp sounds are grafted and a strong voice that at times is more shouting than singing ! Epsilon is clearly a Record of ‘present days’, fast, modern and nasty, where melodies are exchanged with a more direct and energetic sound impact. Epsilon once again demonstrates the Band’s will to experiment and to progress through their own artistic journey without conceding anything in terms of repetitiveness and sounds previously used.
