This is the first song Apparat has shared from the upcoming album LP5, titled “DAWAN”, and it is amazing. It will be out 3/22 via Mute Records.
Holy shit this is exciting. One of the most exciting releases that we are now anticipating is this from Apparat. It’s been 6 years since Sascha Ring has released anything under the Apparat moniker, he’s been busy with Moderat, but this project is amazing. We were fortunate enough to see him live during his tour for “The Devil’s Walk” album at the El Rey Theatre back in 2012 and that show still holds up as one of the best shows we’ve ever seen live.
The album has Apparat collaborating with cellist Philipp Thimm, and incorporates trombone, trumpet and saxophone, a harp, a double bass and strings.
Thru a press release Sascha Ring had this to say about his new album:
“I was only able to make the record this way because Moderat exists. Having a huge stage with Moderat gave me a setting for grand gestures and meant I could unburden Apparat from these aspirations. I don’t have to write big pop hymns here; I can just immerse myself in the details and the structures.”

There are tour dates announced now, they’re all in Europe as of now, here’s to hoping he brings Apparat back to the West coast.
