about

Straight from the heart of snow-covered Russia, after three long years of silence, one of the country's most well-renowned dark scene acts, Purple Fog Side, returns at last with “Reality Awaits”.

Founded in 1996 and led by Pavel Zolin, a talented musician and sound producer, the band has evolved with various line-up and stylistic changes, yet has always maintained its signature feel and sound. This new album marks the band's seventh record and showcases yet another impressive progression in its evolution, highlighted by remarkable musicianship and composition throughout.

“Reality Awaits” delivers an elegant blend of synthpop, dreampop and gothic rock, with deep melancholic lyrics performed with a captivating combination of male and female vocals. Reminiscent of artists such as Cocteau Twins, Bel Canto, Escape with Romeo and The Eden House, the album has already received many positive reviews from well-known musicians in the European scene, with many claiming it to be one of the best albums in the band's history.

The album is to be released on March 26, 2013 in collaboration with two Russian labels - SkyQode (digital version) and Shadowplay (CD version). The CD version will be available in a 4-panel digipak with a solid 24-page booklet that includes a collection of unique photographs by the talented artist Sofia Skobeleva.

Track Name: Fairytale
does my mind
still believe in this fabrication
perfect world
for me and you
why my heart
is inspired by these shameful words
of charming lies
charming lies

please tell me a fairytale
longing for years of winter
please tell me a perfect tale
which ends pretty well for us
please tell me a fairytale
where nobody cries
please tell me that fairytale
so cute, so bright, so magical
charming lies
charming lies

does my mind
still beleive in this fabrication
perfect world
for me and you
why my heart
is inspired by these shameful words
of charming lies
charming lies

please lie me once again
the truth is confusing
please hide it
please tell me a perfect tale
in which we shall never part
please tell me a fairytale
where nobody cries
please tell me that fairytale
so calm, so charming, so magical
endless dream

does my mind
still beleive in this fabrication
perfect world
for me and you
why my heart
is inspired by these shameful words
of charming lies
charming lies
Track Name: Pixie Queen
you are my pixie queen
you fly amongst the flowers
the land and dreams and wonders
the land of watercolours
and your shy eyes are shining
with tenderness in dreams
you are my endless poem
you are my pixie queen

you are my endless poem
you're my queen
you are my endless poem
you're my queen

and every evening
i recollect
i feel again
my pixie queen
my love and wish
and your shy eyes
i read them

and every evening
i recollect
i feel again
my pixie queen
my love and wish
and your shy eyes
i read them again

but if i close the book
the dust will fly
but if i close the book
only dust will stand
as million of stars
as silver rain
as million of stars
as silver rain

and every evening
i recollect
i feel again
my pixie queen
my love and wish
and your shy eyes
i read them again
Track Name: Emptiness Is A Gift
i'm your earth and you're my sky

i'm leaving you alone with words of love
far away from my polite smile
in a cold cold world
in a cold cold world
when i'm your earth and you're my sky

i'll let you cry, i'll let you breathe,
lest this leads you to discontent
i'll let you cry, i'll let you leave,
go on with this, don't be afraid

don't you understand
please, don't be afraid

don't you understand
that love is unleashed only when you stop
think of your desires
we can't be together, we are not the same
i'm your earth and you're my sky
i'm your earth and you're my sky
and you're my sky

i ask your mind for what is love
the answer lost or question set
the emptiness inside of you
will bring all things just like they do

and maybe you're afraid to understand
that you will never love and there's nothing left

don't you understand...

don't you understand,
that love is unleashed only when you stop
think of your desires
we can't be together, we are not the same
i'm your earth and you're my sky
i'm your earth and you're my sky
and you're my sky
Track Name: We Hold The Breath
we hold the breath
we stop in dread
come
come follow me into the dawn
we go away from the restless world
we pass the sun
the sky is ours
the sky is ours

i call you here for aeons passed
let freedom last for ages lost
i called your name for endless years
i felt your dreams
i felt your tears
i felt your tears

as one we are
the endless night
the joyful dawn
the new delight
as one we are
the endless night
the joyful dawn
the new delight

come follow me
come feel my sorrow
come be with me forever
i called your name for endless years
i felt your dreams
i felt your tears
i felt your tears

as one we are
the endless night
the joyful dawn
the new delight
as one we are
the endless night
the joyful dawn
the new delight
Track Name: Moonbeams
inside my dreams
i try to feel all what is ours
and all love we had inside
i hold you tight
i breathe your love
beneath the sun
where all the stars will shine forever

moonbeams shall wash me from tears i fell in despair

inside the sleep
beneath the shade
once again
i want to feel you
want to hold you to be free

i want to change
the destiny inside our dreams
i try to wake
i try to see your loving smile

moonbeams shall wash me from tears I fell in despair
moonbeams shall wash me from tears I fell in despair
Track Name: Shreds (My Little Hideaway)
i was pretty young one day
and kept my only treasure tight
right inside my secret box
far away from cutting biting winds of madding crowd
far away
far away
so far away from creepy scournful eyes of scary ghosts
i was afraid
to lose everything i had
i was afraid
to lose everything i had
i was afraid

i hold them
the dreams i had
run away
from fears i got
into my little hideway
from changes
that hold my life

my little hideaway
my little hideaway

they keep me from falling down again
and they raise me above the crowd
i hide them since trees were tall
i dream them before its told
far away
far away
so far away from creepy scournful eyes of scary ghosts
i was afraid
that anyone would see
i was afraid
that secrets are just for me

i hold them
the dreams i had
run away
frrom fears i got
into my little hideway
from changes
that haunt my life

my little hideaway
my little hideaway
Track Name: Soon I Will Live (Feat. Tahoma)
i wanted to say that the wind is still blowing
i wanted to feel how the sun'll be rising
i wanted to see how the autumn is fading
i wanted to dance with the leaves and clouds of dust

i wanted to say that the heart's full of sandstorms
i wanted to say how i needed this moon
i wanted to say that the clouds fly down
i wanted to feel how the fever brings inside
hate and eternity
love and despair in velvet entwined
temptation and wine
tears and rage in a heart shaped box

soon i will hate for your love
soon i will live for your love
soon i will love again
soon i will love again
soon i will love

soon i will hate
soon i will love
soon i will live again
soon i will hate
soon i will love
soon i will live again
soon i will hate
soon i will love
soon i will live again
soon i will hate
soon i will love
