Laang’s third album Riluo 日落 is inspired by the trauma and recovery of the band’s frontman Haitao Yang when shot and briefly declared medically dead.
During this time Haitao experienced hallucinations of an otherworld that carried an overwhelming feeling of terror and isolation.
This album explores the sensation and experience of how it feels to die, and recounts the visions experienced while bleeding out.
Lyrically the album discusses the trauma of death, the pain of recovery, and the emotional disconnection associated with trying to re-live a normal life after trauma.
Riluo 日落 is released as six-panel digipak with booklet-sleeve and 16 sided booklet limited to 500 pieces.
