A new dawn awaits!! Southern Lord Recordings and Om have set October 2nd as the official release date for their 3rd (first on Southern Lord) full-length album!! This beast is entitled: â€œPilgrimageâ€ and was recorded at Electrical Audio in Chicago, IL. by Steve Albini. The album is currently being mastered by Bob Weston (also in Shellac) at Chicago Mastering Services.
â€œPilgrimageâ€ expands on their unique use of riff,,, cadenceâ€¦chant..as heard on previous recordings yet finds the band expanding their vision into new territories. Of particular note is how much the song-writing has developed and in turn makes the dynamics of the songs much more intensely powerful.
The track-listing for â€œPilgrimageâ€ is as follows:
2. Unitive Knowledge of the Godhead
3. Bhimas Theme
4. Pilgrimage (reprise)
A gatefold LP version of the album will also be released sometime shortly after the CD release.
