Once again, here are the heroines of everyday life! Their music: dense, precise, their beats driving at times, beating hard on the pulse of postmodernism. They put red meat on the bones. BLOOD for Les Reines Prochaines is not the blood of bloodshed or war, but of life itself—heart‘s blood, hot blood, menstrual blood, the bloody tears of the Holy Mother of God, blood sausage, and red hot. Blood—the thick warm deep syrup of life.

21 tracks, songs and sound poems from LRP‘s last live programs. Songs written by life itself, ballads—bold and light, tableaux full of sumptuous tales. Songs for the serious, songs for the silly, served up by five exciting lead voices, a playful rhythm section, juicy brass riffs and heavenly refrains.

LRP‘s taste goes to a minimalist, unpolished sound, pop, punk, chanson and folk. Everything they‘ve ever heard and been touched by goes into it, making for stylistic nuances that combine tango, cabaret, Balkan beat, mariachi, piano lounge, klezmer and Brecht-Weil.

The lyrics are in German, English and Spanish. Each song an individual work sung by one of the queens, songs as different as the temperaments of their composers.

Les Reines Prochaines will present their new live-program "Syrup of life" in Vienna (Kosmos Theater) from 07/06/2013 to 08/06/2013

The release of the new album is accompanied by the 77-minute documentary film „Les Reines Prochaines“ by Claudia Willke, produced by Stella Händler. The Hamburg filmmaker followed LRP for over three years and shows how they keep breaking down the barriers between music, theatre, visual art and film and recombining them with wit, imagination and radical cheek.
