Last year, influential French “blackgaze” duo ALCEST released their sixth studio album 'Spiritual Instinct' through Nuclear Blast. Warmly-received by press and fans alike, the album scored the band their highest chart position in several countries, including Germany (#12) and Switzerland (#30). Today, the band presents an alternate version of their haunting track 'Protection', remixed by longtime CHELSEA WOLFE collaborator Ben Chisholm. The song was included alongside two other tracks on the bonus EP that was only available with deluxe versions of 'Spiritual Instinct', but is now being made available digitally for the first time.

His take on the song left us speechless as he gave it his very own style; a totally new sound, atmosphere and structure. We absolutely loved his approach." "It was an honor to be invited to reimagine 'Protection'. The melodies and changes are so strong, it was a pleasure to work with. I have the utmost respect for ALCEST, so it's really special to be connected to their legacy, and especially to this fantastic album." - Ben Chisholm Order 'Spiritual Instinct' on a range of different formats now: Listen to the band's new tracks in the NB New Releases Playlists: /
