Following the departure of long time vocalist Tanzir Tuhin and addition of Sheikh Ishtiaque, the newly reformed Bangladeshi rock band Shironamhin has recently announced the release of a new album.
The new project is set to release in coming September.
With Ishtiaque, the vocalist and guitarist of the band Nonta Biscuit, on the vocals, the psychedelic rock troupe has already started working on the album, confirmed Ziaur Rahman Zia, the bassist of Shironamhin.
Works on three of the tracks for their yet-to-be-titled album - “Bohemian,” “Jadukar” and “Barudsamudro,” along with their music videos - have already been completed. Directed by National Film Award winning director Ashraf Shshir, the band looks forward to the second week of December to release one of the prepared tracks, “Jadukar,” on Youtube.
Zia promises the audience the same Shironamhin, they had been accustomed to, in their new album. “Tracks in the album will be no different than our previous works. I hope the audience will enjoy the same,” he told the press.
Earlier in a Facebook post on Sunday, the new vocal of the band confirmed and expressed his excitement upon joining the widely popular music troupe.
“I feel honoured to announce that I have joined the amazing Shironamhin as a vocalist. I would like to thank the team Shironamhin for their support and faith in me and would also like to thank my family, friends and well wishers for supporting me no matter what,” wrote Ishtiaque.
He added: “I find it hard to believe that all these are real and happening. Keep me in your prayers.”
The band, formed in 1996, had Tuhin join in 2000 as their lead vocal. Though, he later stepped away from the troupe on October 6 this year.
The band's first album, “Jahaji,” was released in 2004, which turned out to be a massive success for the band.
Shironamhin released their last album almost four years ago.
