Bali-based rock band Navicula will hold a concert for their Earthship album release on Nov. 10 at the Colony Creative Hub, Renon Plaza, Denpasar, Bali.
Earthship is Navicula’s ninth album, which was recorded a day before bassist Made Indra died in a car crash on Mar. 24. “Made filled the entire bass section on this album. We dedicate this album to him,” vocalist and guitarist Gede Robi said as quoted by Antara.
Produced by the Manik Bumi Foundation, the album contains 10 tracks with themes ranging from the environment, social criticism and pluralism to Indonesia’s political climate. The band said it encompassed a message of peace, love and freedom.
The concert will be limited to an audience of 200 and will feature the band Zat Kimia and musician Made Mawut. During the concert, Navicula plans to release a music video for Earthship’s second single titled "Di Depan Layar" (In Front of the Screen). The first single, "Ibu", was released on Jun. 9.
Navicula will also share clips of their tour of Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic, which ran from Oct. 3 to 17.
Throughout their European tour, the band aired Pulau Plastik (Plastic Island), a documentary about the plastic waste problem in Bali. The documentary is a collaborative effort between Akarumput, Kopernik, ASA Film, the Ford Foundation, National Geographic and The Body Shop. (iru/wng)
