"The album's recording journey, spanning just under a year, was marked by trial and error, but the end result is nothing short of mesmerizing. To craft their harmonious resonance, Strange New Dawn chose to work on drums, guitars, bass, keys, and sample at Burnhill Studios which provided the ideal setting for their deep expedition into unknown musical landscapes, while Ex-Royal and Bjørn Harstad sculpted vocal and guitar magic at Endre Kirkesola's Dub Studio.

Fortune Bringer, a track inspired by the earlier works of In The Woods..., was the final gem added to New Nights of Euphoria. With lyrics penned nearly two decades ago by Ex-Royal and Muld, the sprawling epic track delves into global issues that should resonate with everyone in the current age, giving Strange New Dawn an eager and fresh impetus.

Strange New Dawn's mission is clear: to provide listeners with an uplifting perspective on the world, coupled with a deeply euphoric journey through their musical landscape. The excitement felt by the bands emergence is shared equally between listener and creators:

We are thrilled with the album and believe we've created something truly special says Xbotteri. Our collaboration has been exceptional, and this journey has been a source of inspiration and fulfilment for all of us."

Nyhet fra 07.09.23:

Bandet melder inn nytt album i november.

Det er Svart Records som slipper skiva 24. november, og som som forklarer bandets musikk slik: "Heavy psychedelic and progressive Doom". 

"Strange New Dawn, born from the minds of visionary artists, from such legendary bands as Green Carnation and In The Woods... takes you on a cosmic journey with their highly-anticipated album, New Nights of Euphoria. Strange New Dawn has redefined the sound of their past to create an ethereal, genre-blending experience that is bound to leave listeners in awe."

Vi kjenner godt til bandet her på, og kommer garantert til å gjøre noe på de når skiva nærmer seg. Inntil videre, sjekk videoen under her, som er et skue i seg selv! Låten begynner pent, men bygger seg kult opp og drar på med tyngde og trøkk. 

"With Xbotteri as the primary songwriter, Strange New Dawn's sound naturally carries the echoes of In The Woods..., which will delight fans who have missed that definitive signature. However, New Nights of Euphoria also ventures into a diverse array of genres, with an unwavering focus on creating atmospheres that captivate the heart and soul."

Inspirasjoner dras fra film og musikk, presseskrivet nevner "...Pink Floyd, Candlemass, Arcturus, and Thule, as well as sci-fi films, esoteric documentaries, and cosmic literature, Strange New Dawn has harnessed their collective creativity to craft a sonic odyssey that defies boundaries."
