On the upcoming album
By Virtue Of The Absurd was created by MARIS in close collaboration with singer Silke Blankers. The band operates on full force when Louis Evrard, Laurens Smet and Thomas Jillings join the liveset. The album is a musical reverie that flutters between sound and voice, experiment and song.
