Spanish instrumental rockers Toundra are pleased to announce the release of their fifth studio album for 27 April 2018.

Following the success of IV, which reached an historic #2 in the Spanish charts, the  new album is titled Vortex with the artwork by Fran Rodríguez from La Cabeza en Las Nubes, who has worked with bands like Weezer.

The band comments: “On September 19 in 2012 we arrived at a venue called Vortex Surfer Musiklub in Siegen, a small town in Germany. We played there, the venue got packed and everything about that night, including the warm welcome from everybody working there, was incredible. We fell in love with that small venue and the house next to it where we slept that night. Since then, we played Vortex five or six times and there has always been that same great fond feeling from the people there. So, this upcoming album is called Vortex. We leave behind the roman numbers and want to use this as a way to thank all the promoters, people working in venues, labels, agencies, fans… and everyone who has helped us over the years to live this dream. We can’t wait for you to hear some of the music”

The album will be released on special edition CD digipak, gatefold black LP + CD & as digital download. You can find the cover artwork and track-listing below:
