Keen to keep the creative juices flowing, Beyond All Recognition released ‘Our Illusion’ at the end of 2014 to provide a taster of what was to come on their highly anticipated follow-up album
After a small line-up change in the middle of 2015 the band, now back to their core members, they were ready to continue where ‘Drop = Dead’ and ‘Our Illusion’ finished and dared to take a step even further away from the ”core-scene” by removing the classical breakdown theme and add more groovy and crunchy riffs instead.
Now, after months of hard work, the new album complete, interest surrounding the band once again beginning to increase at a rapid rate. Beyond All Recognition are ready to head back out touring and secure their position as the innovative band who always succeed to amaze. With an innovative sound and a new unique image, Beyond All Recognition are eager to work towards the next level, and with the right support the band can reach their potential and continue to gain international success and recognition.
The second album “Beyond All Recognition” was released on May 27, 2016 via their new worldwide record deal with Gain Music Entertainment (Sony Music).
