SUBSONICA “Augmented Reality” the band’s tenth album out on January 12th

Music news

Subsonica’s new album is titled “Augmented Reality”. The album is the Turin band’s tenth studio album and comes after “Instrumental Mental” of 2020.

The album, out on January 12th, is preceded by the new single Morning of Light, out December 29, which comes after the release of “Fist of Sand” and “Adagio”, the latter part of the original soundtrack – written and composed by the band – of the film of the same name by Stefano Sollima, in theaters from 14 December.


“Augmented Reality” is an album of eleven songs written over 2023, which have absorbed a lot of reality in the sounds, rhythms and words. A reality whose effects have increased significantly in recent years. A reality that has locked us at home for months, revealing all the fragilities of a globalized present, which exposes us to extreme climate effects, which has returned to shock us with wars and which knocks on our borders with a daily life full of misery, hope and despair. An “augmented reality” to which, paradoxically, we have begun to respond with growing disperception between denials, distorted readings, virtual escapes and lack of humanity. This “augmented reality” would seem to push us towards individual and individualistic isolation, rather than suggesting collective actions and responses, the only ones capable of protecting us since we have inhabited this planet.

The songs on the album zoom between pixels of everyday life and cosmic visions, between luminous energies and shadows, between present and future, always traveling on an enveloping rhythmic track.



The album cover is created by the designer and visual artist Marino Capitanio who describes the creative process as follows: “For the album cover I was inspired by the song “Africa on Mars”, creating a fusion between earthly roots and cosmic visions . In this intertwining, augmented reality becomes a metaphor for expansion beyond the boundaries of the imagination. It is a balance between the familiar and the unknown, between the tangible and the abstract.”

Subsonica honor the milestone of their tenth release with a manifesto album that talks about the present, touching on current themes through different reading angles, in a varied and surprising musical universe, but with the unmistakable style that has characterized the group since 1996.
