Boris Grebenshchikov’s legendary Russian rock group Aquarium is to play a concert in Kiev. “I don’t support military scenarios,” the rock musician stressed.

On 1 November 2014, Boris Grebenshchikov released his new album Sol [Salt], writes Mediza. The album was recorded in London, New York and St. Petersburg.

Aquarium is currently about to go on tour. Grebenshchikov hopes that musicians Paul and Jeremy Stacey, who have worked with Oasis in the past and also worked on Noel Gallagher’s solo project, will join the group on tour. One of Aquarium’s concerts is to take place in Kiev. In response to a question from Kommersant’s Boris Barabanov about whether the performance had a special meaning, Grebenshikov said: “Everyone chooses for themselves in which context to live.”

“I don’t support military scenarios. I continue to believe that Aquarium’s arrival in any town has a calming influence. The energy that Aquarium produces at its concerts can help peace in the world,” said Boris Grebenshikov in an interview with Kommersant.
