Lia Hide will release The Missing Fourth Guest via Conch Town Records on April 1, 2022

Lia Hide is the prolific lady of Greece's dark, progressive, alt-pop. Her latest effort, The Missing Fourth Guest, is the fourth

album by the Athenian avant-pop artist.

The Missing Fourth Guest borrows its title from Plato's 'Timeaus' dialogue opening line and discusses the emotional struggles

of the recent Covid19 pandemic and lockdowns, human mortality, and the modern man's place in the Universe. The album

contains eight tracks, and in addition, a three-fold major work in the form of a sonota.

Hide's classical music training is evident. Her songwriting is simple, pop, structured and lyrical, yet bears progressive music

elements, embedding glitch and jazz fragments, cinematic guitars and orchestral layers, electronic sub drones, and industrial

noises. The dark post-wave affair is brought to life by Hide’s lyrics, the music and arrangements created by Hide and bandmates

Aki’Base (bass,) and George Rados (drums.) Additional musicians on the record include Stelios Chatzikaleas (trumpet,)

and Dennis Morfis (guitars.)

An international affair, the album was produced by Hide and recorded at Don’t Hide Me Studios in Athens, Greece, mixed by

Ian Shaw of Warmfuzz Productions in Key West, Florida and mastered by Denis Blackham at Skye Mastering in the Isle of

Skye, UK
