LUNATIC SOUL RELEASES ANTICIPATED FIFTH OPUS - FRACTURED - A CINEMATIC JOURNEY OF
Lunatic Soul is Mariusz Duda, the talented creator, singer and multi-instrumentalist behind some of the finest and most
captivating progressive music coming from Europe, including his output on UK label Kscope and with Poland's shooting
stars Riverside. Duda is now releasing his fifth and long-awaited album Fractured - an album of catharsis after a
challenging year in his personal life.
Mariusz explains that "the main theme of "Fractured" is coming back to life after a personal tragedy. It's inspired by what
happened in my life in 2016 and by everything that's happening around us and what's making us turn away from one
another and divide into groups, for better and for worse. Musically it's the most original album I have ever made. it will be
the most accessible album in the LS discography."
As well as a conceptual development, Duda gained the self-confidence for greater creative audacity on the new material,
experimenting more with electronics and rhythm and inspirations evident from Massive Attack and Depeche
Mode to Peter Gabriel. Fractured features Poland's Sinfonietta Consonus Orchestra on two of the album's most
personal tracks and saxophonist Marcin Odyniec who first worked with Duda in Riverside.
The album was recorded in Poland at Serakos Studio and Custom 34 Studio, mixed by Magda & Robert Srzedniccy and
Mariusz Duda, and the artwork was created by the renowned cover artist Travis Smith, whose previous work includes the
likes of Opeth & Riverside. This version of Fractured will be released as a double LP pressed to 180g heavyweight
audiophile vinyl presented in a gatefold packaging.
