Almah has confirmed the title of its upcoming third album, the follow-up to the previous success “Fragile Equality,” as “Motion.” The cover artwork is available below.

Vocalist Edu Falaschi commented on the artwork, “The cover has been created by myself with my own iPhone. I took a picture in Paris and used some applications to create that motion effect. Then Felipe used my picture and re-created this artwork in high resolution using Photoshop and completed it with new elements. This time we wanted something modern and direct to represent our music and we are totally sure that we got the result we really wanted since the very beginning. This CD will show the real Almah’s language and personality! Stay tuned for further news!”

At the moment the band is finishing the recording of the new CD at Norcal Studios (São Paulo, Brazil). “Motion” is to be released this fall via AFM Records (Europe and North America), Laser Company (Brazil), and Victor JVC (Japan). The album is produced by Edu Falaschi and Felipe Andreoli.
