KAISER and the MACHINES of CREATION announce their new album FLOWERS AND LIES to be released on July 11th via MR Records.
Lead vocalist Paul Kaiser, “FLOWERS AND LIES… my metaphor for those people that fear reality. In that I mean… someone may put up with deceit and disloyalties so to keep the peace and take the flowers and lies. Being a foolish acceptance, they fake a smile and convince themselves they are right ‘they wouldn’t lie to me’ and if need be, even defend it fiercely. Without ever knowing the truth or even investigating. It is the ultimate ignorance. This also applies to general beliefs in Politics and Politicians, Scientists, the Media and the body corporate and runs as a theme throughout the album.”
‘Kaiser and the Machines of Creation’ are certainly not the stereotypical band. Their songwriting and production are exemplary. Their music videos take you on a journey, which is missing in many music videos throughout the world. This 9 track album takes the listener on a journey of imagination and thought provoking diversity. MR Records are extremely proud to be involved with the release of ‘Flowers and Lies’. – Peter Naylor, A&R MR Records
Ever wondered how Bauhaus would sound if they dabbled in Hard Rock, you’d get a fair enough idea by hitting play on Kaiser and the Machines Of Creation. You’ll still get to absorb plenty of arrestingly technical soaring guitar riffs which you’re accustomed to in Hard Rock, but irrefutably Kaiser and the Machines Of Creation are the much-needed antidote to the sterility in the genre. – anrfactory.com

This is seriously intelligent, well-thought out stuff. This is an album that undoubtedly ultimately deserves and demands repeated listens and deep immersion. dig in and take delight in one of the most intriguing artists thrown up by the Australian hard rock scene in aeons… – sentineldaily.com.au
