Das mittlerweile fünfte Album der norwegischen Band um Gitarrist Bandleader und Produzent Bjørn Riis. Das Album enthält sechs, thematisch zusammenhängende Songs und nimmt den Hörer mit auf eine Reise durch üppige, teils sanfte Prog-Klanglandschaften und Arrangements, getragen von erhabenen Gitarren und eingängigem Gesang. Die Band setzt wie auch schon beim Vorgänger 'Disconnected' auf viel Atmosphäre, souveräne Melodien und schwebende Arrangements mit leicht melancholischer Grundausrichtung. Neu hingegen sind Referenzen an die 1980er Jahre mit Electronica, New Wave und Movie Score-Anleihen. Airbag, hier erstmals als Trio, hielten dabei ihrem Stamm-Engineer Vegard Sleipnes die Treue, während Asle Tostrup und Bjørn Riis 'A Day At The Beach' produzierten. Als Gast ist Kristian Hultgren (Wobbler) mit an Bord. Ein Album das nicht mehr nur im Fahrwasser von Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd oder Marillion schwimmt, sondern der Band zu mehr eigener Identität verhelfen wird!
'A Day At The Beach' wird in vier Konfigurationen beim Stammlabel Karisma Records ercheinen: CD, Digisleeve-CD, LP, Lim. Clear Vinyl-LP!

"…Auch wenn die Norweger an Pink Floyd und Porcupine Tree erinnern, haben Airbag inzwischen ihren ganz eigenen, unverkennbaren New-Artrock-Sound entwickelt. 'A Day At The Beach' ist wieder mal ein wunderbar atmosphärisches Werk geworden, Meine Empfehlung!"… (Empire Magazin)



It’s been 4 years, but finally the fifth album from Airbag will be released on Karisma Records, and it has definitely been worth the wait.


“A Day at the Beach” features six new songs recorded during autumn and winter of 2019-20. Inspired by the resurgence of 1980s electronica, new wave and movie scores, Airbag has created a powerful sound combining ethereal soundscapes with their signature guitar driven progressive rock. The result is a stunning selection of songs revealing a mature band looking forward, with an impressive legacy.
Airbag explains: “The album is the result of a strong collaboration between all three of us. Having lost two original members since our last album, we were forced to rethink how we write and create new music, but it also allowed us to venture into something new that turned out to be very inspiring.” Lyrically, “A Day at the Beach” is very much a story of us and them, told by a husband, father and brother leaving his family behind into an unknown future. It’s the contrast between the desperate individual struggling to survive and people in power observing at a safe distance. For the production of “A Day at the Beach”, Airbag has once again teamed up with long-time collaborator and engineer Vegard Sleipnes, and it was mastered by Jacob Holm-Lupo.


The album is produced by Asle Tostrup and Bjørn Riis, and, as always, the cover is designed by vocalist Tostrup. The album, which is their first as a trio, also features talented guest musicians including Kristian Hultgren (Wobbler).
