Ruptured + Annihaya Album Release // SENYAWA // Alkisah

Arriving February 21 on Ruptured + Annihaya.

Indonesian art-doom duo SENYAWA — vocalist Rully Shabara and instrumentalist Wukir Suryadi — will release their new studio album ALKISAH in February 2021, through a cooperative arrangement with a number of labels across the globe, in an attempt to decentralize the hierarchical structures of the music industry, particularly the distribution system.

Each participating label was given free rein to design their own cover, package the album in the format of their choice, and decide on the number of copies they wish to release.
Each label represents the country where it is based, in order to avoid distribution overlap, minimize shipping distances, and empower smaller scattered powers to grow and connect. The way it should be.

Lebanese indie labels RUPTURED and ANNIHAYA have joined forces for this unique release, gladly embracing the challenge of producing and distributing a limited vinyl edition of ALKISAH in Lebanon and nearby countries.
The worldwide release of the album will be accompanied by a digital album of remixes, produced by musicians from Beirut and beyond.

Order limited edition vinyl + digital from Bandcamp HERE and HERE
