Gunnar Haslam and Johannes Auvinen (a.k.a. Tin Man) first got together as Romans back in 2014, and have released two EPs to date—Romans 1 on Global A and last year's Ambulare Aude on The Bunker New York. The duo will return to the imprint with their debut album together, Valere Aude, a 12-track record packed with "hallucinogenic, psychedelic techno."
Speaking about the project, Auvinen stated: "We are discovering a third entity as Romans, within Romans, which is neither he [Haslam] nor I. Our decisions as producers become simpler as we get closer to discovering Romans' sound."
Valere Aude will be The Bunker New York's second full-length release, after Reagenz' The Periodic Table. It comes at the end of a year in which the imprint has released music from the likes of Donato Dozzy, Wata Igarashi and Patrick Russell.
Valere Aude is expected to drop in early December. Pre-order it at Bandcamp and listen to snippets below.
