Gengahr share acoustic project ‘Sanctuary’

Gengahr have released a five-track EP made up of acoustic renditions of songs taken from the band’s most recent studio album Sanctuary.

The original record, which was released in January of this year, has been reworked after the band we inspired during life amid a health crisis lockdown: “Lockdown gave us an unexpected opportunity to reimagine some of the songs off our new record,” frontman Felix Bushe revealed in a statement.

Adding: “It was a really interesting process stripping down our most built up production to date and seeing how the songs would exist in this new form”.

The new material offered the group and, more prominently, Bushe the opportunity to explore new avenues of their creative vision. “I got the chance to go down the rabbit hole and make my own experiences personal,” Bushe said.

“That is the nature of doing stuff away from the band. It was also a combination of going through a rough patch and we changed the way that the record was constructed.”
