At the center of their music has always been the connection between the old and the new. With their fourth album, "Late Reflections" (out April 21, 2023 on City Slang), German-Swiss music duo Grandbrothers now relate their work to an institution that predates their music by seven centuries: Cologne Cathedral.

The iconic monument of Gothic architecture, UNESCO World Heritage Site and Germany's most visited landmark served as an unorthodox recording studio for Erol Sarp and Lukas Vogel's new album.

It is the first time in the history of its existence that the cathedral has made its premises available for recordings of this kind. The result is an album with a precise sense of history and architecture, an album that makes the spatial characteristics of this magnificent building part of its hypnotic composition itself and transforms them into sound.

The sound from the special building in Cologne will be transmitted to the Theater des Westens on October 02, 2023, once again giving Grandbrothers the distinction of being a very special and exciting act of the modern era.
