'Down' is Illegal Operation's fourth studio album. A slow, intuitive gaze upon the world of blues. It was released in vinyl and cd in the Spring of 2017.

Inspired by the dark lyricism of the songs, we designed the cover using mainly black and some details in silver. The hyena plays an important role inspired by the lyrics, placed in a desert-like landscape, under a starry sky. In the album's inner sleeve, we have made a 'constellation' typography using the band's name, to put focus on the nocturnal feeling of the songs.

Here's a sample of the music.

PS. 'Down' is not the only Illegal Operation album we have designed. Take a look here and discover what we did for their previous record!
