IKITAN Release Live Video For Twenty-Twenty Live at Forte Geremia

IKITAN, a heavy post-rock trio, is proud to present "Twenty-Twenty Live at Forte Geremia", its first live video.

It was recorded on top of Forte Geremia, in the outskirts of Genoa, Italy, and shows the band playing its debut EP “Twenty-Twenty” (consisting of one 20-minute-20-second instrumental song and published on 20 November 2020) live for the first time.

The video was be published on the band’s YouTube channel and on Bandcamp on Friday 25th June 2021 (and premiered on 666MRDoom’s YouTube channel on Thursday 24th June 2021).

It all started when we wanted to do a live show from our new studio playing “Twenty-Twenty” back to back. Then it got more and more complex as we kept adding ideas and things we wanted to do for our first “concert”… the next thing you know, we’re loading our cars to film a live video on top of a mountain.

It’s always like this: one of us has a crazy idea, and the other two just add fuel to the fire!

Like any other bands, IKITAN has not been able to play any gigs and, on top of this, they never had the chance to debut on stage. The band formed just before the pandemic started… so if the concert does not go to IKITAN, then IKITAN must go to the concert, on top of a mountain!

Our debut “Twenty-Twenty” was generally very well received, and we’re very grateful for this. We didn’t expect such a good response. By recording a live version of “Twenty-Twenty”, we also wanted to celebrate this little big achievement.

“Twenty-Twenty Live at Forte Geremia” was recorded on a sunny and windy Sunday 7th March 2021 on top of an old fort (819m asl). The band is captured live for the first time in a vast landscape, between sea and mountains.

In this way, IKITAN gives justice to the original idea of the IKITAN divinity, the alleged God of the Sound of the Stones.

We’re pleased about this live video, which is meant to be a straightforward representation of the band playing live. It’s the generator-party version of us and on top of a mountain. It is our first gig, and although it’s quite a weird debut, we’re satisfied it’s happened this way.

IKITAN’s debut EP “Twenty-Twenty” is available as a limited-edition (200 copies) digipack with a free poster and sticker as well as a digital download on Bandcamp.
