DESCRIPTION

Trial and error, winning and losing, success and setbacks, joy and sorrow, "Luctor et Emergo" (I struggle and emerge):  the title of the third album of the dutch rock band Lesoir.
The title is characteristic of the content on the album and is a recurring theme of singer Maartje Meessen's lyrics. It touches upon various issues of life, not always with a conclusion or an answer.
The previous album "Transience" received rave reviews from far beyond the Dutch borders, securing Lesoir many international bookings as far apart as London to China.
High profile support shows with renowned bands Karnivool, Delain, The Gathering, Within Temptation and The Pineapple Thief have helped build the bands momentum and increase fans globally.

In June 2014, armed with 12 rough tracks, the band travelled to the UK to spend two weeks in the famous Airfield Studios, St. Merryn, to work alongside top producer and close friend
John Cornfield (known for his work with Muse, Oasis, Supergrass, Stone Roses, Katatonia & New Model Army) on their third album.
The remote location of this former airport allowed the band to simply focus on one goal; the making of a dynamic creation in which Lesoir would musically expose themselves. Partly due to the intensive input and guidance from Cornfield, Lesoir managed to achieve an even more superior sound. For 'Luctor et Emergo' honesty, spaciousness, grandeur, fragility, experimental and melodiousness are all descriptions that apply.

The first video single "Going Home" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Y_xyKEdais is about the search for a safe haven in contrast with a sense of desolation. This juxtaposition is very characteristic of Lesoir's compositions; to seek for a constant tension between the vocal lines and carefully constructed instrumental layers.
"Luctor et Emergo" continues where "Transience" left off and Lesoir continue to infiltrate more profoundly in the international market, where their spotlight is becoming ever brighter.
