More than a quarter of a century after the release of the last album, Warsaw Collage returns with the long-awaited new album, entitled “Over And Out”. The album will have its premiere at the beginning of December, but the history of this album dates back to 2013, when, after a long break in their activity, the musicians of the most famous group Collage decided to return to active activity. Already before returning to the stage, the musicians of Collage and the vocalist Robert Amirian parted ways, who was replaced by Karol Wróblewski, and then Bartek Kossowicz, known from the Quidam band. In 2015, the decision to part was made by one of the group’s founders, Mirek Gil. Michał Kirmuć took his place. From that moment a new chapter in the history of Collage began, the result of which is the album “Over And Out”.

There are only five compositions on the album, but while the shortest of them is less than five minutes, the title track is over twenty minutes of sound feast for the most demanding fans of Collage and progressive rock in general. Musically, despite many years of break in activity and personnel changes, the character known from such albums as “Fairy Tales”, “Safe” or “Moonshine” has been preserved.

The cover of the album, as in the case of the albums “Moonshine” and “Safe”, was decorated with a painting by Zdzisław Beksiński, which perfectly harmonizes not only with the lyrics, but also with the music contained in the album. The whole is complemented by the presence of a special guest on the album – Steve Rothery, the guitarist of Marillion. In the song promoting the album “What About The Pain”, the band supported the children’s choir.
