Album artwork for Nova Akropola - Expanded by Laibach

Few bands stand apart from the crowd as distinctly as Laibach. Their idiosyncratic outlook and philosophy was formed against the backdrop of post-Soviet socialism in the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, and the band has continued to follow an individual, often controversial path for over forty years, taking them into places few other artists dare to go.

Originally released by Cherry Red in 1986, Nova Akropola (‘The New Acropolis’) remains a masterpiece of politically-informed industrial expression, and signalled the beginning of Laibach’s breakthrough onto the international scene, at a time when restrictions imposed on them in their homeland were beginning to be lifted.

Curated, remastered and designed by the band and their organisation, this new 3CD edition includes two discs of vital live recordings of Nova Akropola songs spanning the years 1985 to 2020, captured in England, Slovenia, Serbia and Macedonia.

Packaged in new artwork and accompanied by brilliant sleevenotes from cultural theorist Alexei Monroe, author of ‘Interrogation Machine’ and associate of the band, this new edition demonstrates the longevity of both the songs and the philosophy behind them, and is a vital new addition to Laibach’s catalogue.
