I have decided to release a single from my forthcoming 2nd full-length solo album.
Titled “1865 // 1895: Cast.Iron.Blood.”, the album is the followup to “+37.717364 // -117.247955: The Last Place I Remember” and continues the wayward journey of the dystopian 1800’s nomad as he navigates the inter-dimensional desert. It is the 2nd in what is intended to be a trilogy and takes on a more fully orchestrated soundtrack approach.
This single: “a river of IRON flows where once the gallows stood” is track two of a 6-song odyssey that bridges a depth of influences from Steve Reich, Ennio Morricone, Fields Of The Nephilim, “White Light”-era SWANS, and is but one piece of a multifaceted but unified whole. The song ebbs, flows, ascends, cascades, and maintains momentum as it travels along its 12 minute duration.
The album was recorded between July - Oct 2019 in Seattle with Tad Doyle (TAD, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth) where great effort was taken to create a production that had depth and power while maintaining the antiquated tone and dusty atmosphere of the time period it evokes.
Release info, cover art, and tracklisting for “1865 // 1895: Cast.Iron.Blood.” will be revealed once I have a better idea of when it will be manufactured. I am trying for a mid-summer release but there is obviously too much uncertainty at the moment. For now, enjoy this glimpse into my new work.
