Airbag is hailed as one of the most important bands to emerge from the Norwegian progressive scene over the past decades.
In June 2020 Airbag released their fifth album, A Dat At The Beach. Featuring the singles Machines and Men and Sunsets, the album is described as one of the top releases of 2020 by critics and fans alike.
Following in the series of remastered, top end re-issues of Norwegian prog act Airbag’s catalogue Karisma Records are very satisfied to present their acclaimed 2009 debut album.
Airbag has created their own, unique sound with elements of classic and progressive rock, chill and jazz, influenced by artist from a wide range of genres, from Pink Floyd and Porcupine Tree to Talk Talk, Radiohead and Marillion (Steve Hogarth era).
The album comprises eight songs with Airbag’s unique sound of classic progressive rock blended with scenic soundscapes, epic guitars and soulful vocals – as legendary Classic Rock Magazine said: «prog at its most chilled, honeyed and soothing».
Identity has been remastered by Jacob Holm-Lupo (White Willow, The Opium Cartel, + + +), and is finally made available on vinyl again – in a special limited deluxe version with a 12 page booklet and die-cut sleeve.
Airbag has managed to create a loyal fan base from all over the world, and their latest studio album A Day At The Beach has already been pressed in more than 13.000 copies.
