I've lost count of how many people have asked for this version...I hope it will make them happy :))

Potboy track 8 needs that intro! NEEDS it, simply because it is easily one of THE greatest and epic intro sections ever recorded in any genre.

I have the CD and it’s awesome 🙏👍😎🤟

Vivien Lalu ive got the original cd, bought when the album was released, what version is that? 🙂

Je crois bien que c'était mon préféré. La "folie" des 1ers, les imperfections qui sont en fait une identité. Envoie nous en encore ! 😁 (Attention, je kiffe aussi les suivants, hein, mais y'a tjr un album qui sort un peu du lot, pour moi c'est celui-ci...) 🤗

Another French painter created an artwork inspired by my music--just like Pascal Ferry had done previously with 'The Chosen Ones'. Only this time, the inspiration came from the material of the upcoming Lalu album (as you may hear in the most recent drums recordings previews)! 🐠👑

As I stated previously, the greatest reward is when you've created something that has resonated strongly with someone, inspiring them to create their own piece of art. What an incredible surprise! Thank you, Fredde, for this incredible work 🙏🏻✨

You guys just have released an amazing album and you are working on the next one already? Wow! Can‘t wait. When is it planned to be released? And yes, Jelly certainly is a great drummer, creatively and technically.

He is fantastic.

Sounds amazing.

le patron.

Un nouveau Lalu ? Tu travailles toujours avec les mêmes musiciens ? J'adore ce que tu fais et j'ai hâte d'écouter le nouvel album ! 👏🤘

Oh hell yes.

Can't wait for the next one

A-Z has a new lyric video out.
I still remember when Mark sent me the drum groove. Immediately imagined some Megadeth riffing, then made it prognxious with keyboards and other things; can't help my YES influence. I've ruined many songs by doing precisely this, but sometimes it works out just fine...anyways,
The work the guys produced amazed me - it's one of my favorite pieces on this record.
Cheers,
Viv

Kaptor Triggers

🥁 𝐍𝐞𝐰 𝐩𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐩 𝐚𝐧𝐧𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 🥁

We're honored to welcome Jelly Cardarelli in the Kaptor family !! Jelly plays in the french 🇫🇷 mordern metal band Disconnected , for the solo project of Vivien Lalu , and many other projects as a session drummer.

Welcome on board Jelly !! 🤘🤘

"Kaptor triggers are just the most accurate, solid and reliable pedals mounted triggers. This is the first time I use this kind of triggers. It's way better than all others type of triggers on the market in my opinion. With this system you're sure to do not have some false triggering from the head... It works with all modules. I use the kaptors with a roland module and it works perfectly.
I'm really happy, it's a game changer. Bravo Kaptor Triggers!"

Great album, great artists ... I like all songs .... 👍🎶😎

Love the opening passage on Rise Again. If you can say, was the piano from the Fantom or another keyboard/VST? Also purchased "Paint the Sky" when it came out. Great compositions you did on both albums. Is there another album you did that I should listen to & purchase?

Not a fan of the three songs i checked out. The Lalu albums are far better.

Rise Again...then all of the rest!

Don't ask me how we did it, but we just dragged ourselves up above "Master of Puppets" in the US digital top 100 (including all music genres). Even though Stranger Things' season 4 finale is propelling it right now—

Thank you ALL for your support, as well as the fantastic remarks that have been flooding in since Friday's release! Grateful and astonished 🙏
