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: “Pilgrimage” 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.

“Pilgrimage” expands on their unique use of riff,,, cadence… 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 “Pilgrimage” is as follows:

1. Pilgrimage
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.

OM will also be performing live on the following dates:

09/13 Beachland Ballroom – Cleveland, OH
09/14 Empty Bottle – Chicago, IL w/ Circle
09/15 Empty Bottle – Chicago, IL w/Daniel Higgs
09/16 Southgate House – Newport, KY
09/19 Marquee Theatre – Tempe, AZ w/Pinback
09/20 Sunshine Theatre – Albuquerque, NM w/Pinback
09/21 Bricktown Live – Oklahoma City, OK w/ Pinback
09/22 Palladium Ballroom – Dallas, TX w/ Pinback
09/23 Emo’s – Austin, TX

…stay tuned for East Coast dates in November and West Coast in December.
…samples of the new recording will be made available on Southern Lord in the near future!
