Laibach, in collaboration with Silence, present the last remaining unpublished tracks from the repertoire of the world-famous North Korea concerts in 2015, immortalized in the documentary ‘Liberation Day’, directed by Morten Traavik and Uģis Olte.

‘Honourable, Dead or Alive, When Following the Revolutionary Road’ is based on an aria from the classic North Korean revolutionary opera ‘Tell, O Forest’(1972), written and produced under the guidance of the Dear Leader Kim Jong Il. ‘Arirang’ is an all-Korean folk song that is often considered the unofficial national anthem of both Koreas. ‘We Will Go to Mount Paektu’ is a 2015 massive ‘light music’ (read: pop) hit in North Korea, originally performed by the all-female Moranbong band, supposedly under the creative guidance of Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un.
