Kingdon Come are back with an impressive new track that debuted on noisecreep.com yesterday. Called “Blue Trees”, it comes from the new album “Rendered Waters”, out April 5th. The album features three new tracks and eight re-recorded tracks from the past, bringing them up-to-date for 2011. The tracks were all recorded at vocalist Lenny Wolf’s Two Square Noise Factory studio in Hamburg, Germany. Lenny talked about the tracks: “Should I”, this time is played more slowly lending it a heavier appeal. The drums are more open and the guitars, according to Lenny, feature a more tube-oriented sound and warmer, more driving tone: “Just to give it an overall 2011 vibe. Of course, you can only change songs to a certain extent if you don’t want to lose the character and central theme of the original version.” The same goes for “I’ve Been Trying”, “Pushing Hard” and “Living Out Of Touch”. None of them have been reinvented, but all three certainly have a noticeable new approach to them. On the other hand, Lenny changed the verse of “I’ve Been Trying” completely, giving it a different arrangement, just like he transported the song “Seventeen” into the year 2011. “Seventeen” has always been kind of a key song for Kingdom Come, yet it has never received much attention since it has a very non-commercial approach and is either loved or hated, but with the new version it will hopefully get the recognition it deserves.”
