Oozing Wound
High Anxiety

I guess an Oozing Wound would be a cause of High Anxiety. This Oozing Wound are a bunch of stoners from Chicago, whose music sounds as though they are fuelled by something more stimulating. Their sound meets halfway between sludgy rock and thrash metal and it has to be said, it’s quite exciting. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Matmos
Plastic Anniversary

Experimental electronic duo Matmos have decided to highlight the plight of convenience with their new album, Plastic Anniversary. The album was made by using plastic objects to make sounds. One sound was achieved by smashing up LPs by 70s soft rock band Bread. Interesting sounds with an important message. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Sarah Louise
Nighttime Birds and Morning Stars

Nighttime Birds and Morning Stars is the latest Sarah Louise's forays to the limits of solo guitar playing. She has always used her virtuosity to create unsettling folk instrumentals and this album is no different. This time however she does a bit of digital manipulation to push even further and harder than before. Unique and terrifying. On Thrill Jockey.

Black To Comm
Seven Horses For Seven Kings

Marc Richter hops over to Thrill Jockey for his latest LP as Black To Comm. Seven Horses For Seven Kings is another plunge into the depths of the human psyche. The blackened, misty music here sounds like it has been dredged up from the bed of the river Styx. Think Prurient, The Body and all that sort of thing.

Endon
Boy Meets Girl

Endon are a Japanese noise-metal band. The noise they make is widely described as catastrophic. They seem to operate by balancing elements that don’t necessarily fit together - ferocity and vulnerability, terrifying noise and fun - and in the case of their new album Boy Meets Girl, love and horror. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Elena Setién
Another Kind Of Revolution

Elena Setien is a Spanish multi-instrumentalist who writes pop songs. Pop, that is, from the point-of-view of a natural improviser. Due to her growing up in the Basque region of Spain during a time of political upheaval, her lyrics are imbued with a sense of hope and progress. Another Kind Of Revolution is her new album. Steve Gunn guests. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

BEAST
Ens

Beast is Koen Holtkamp, who is also known as one half of Mountains with Brendan Angeregg. Ens sees Holtkamp making more tightly constructed compositions, compared with his previous sprawling explorations. The album was made as Holtkamp’s partner was expecting, then having their first child and the experience plays out in the heartfelt music, some grounded and some more for the clouds. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Susie Ibarra
Perception

It's been a good year for percussionist and experimentalist Susie Ibarra: first her stellar collaboration with Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe and YoshimiO, now this brand new solo full-length on Thrill Jockey! Perception moves sleekly between spiritual-feel jazz, expansive percussive play, and electronic enhancements. An album that will surprise and delight.
  • Vinyl LP (THRILL949LP)

Thalia Zedek Band
Fighting Season

Thalia Zedek, of Come and Live Skull, is back (though she never really went away), with an album of guitar-led songs inspired / informed by the Fighting Season of Afghanistan. With guest spots from Chris Brokaw and J. Mascis, as well as her own sterling band, Zedek creates a raw and personal political statement. Released by Thrill Jockey.

SUMAC
Love In Shadow

Fresh from their collaboration with Keiji Haino, the ex-Isis / Russian Circles / Baptists supergroup that is SUMAC hand us their third full-length album. Love In Shadow blasts forth with four lengthy and hefty pieces, which pilot an exhilarating course between tight, propulsive structure and looser abstraction. For old SUMAC fans and Haino-heads who might have just discovered them, this will hit the spot.

Alexander Tucker
Don't Look Away

Don’t Look Away completes the trio of LPs that the Grumbling Fur's Alexander Tucker started with 2011’s Dorwytch. It’s a record of whimsical, finely-crafted, Brian Eno-esque pop. Factory Floor's Nik Void guests on the hypnotic, droning 'Gloops Void (Give It Up)'. This one's out via Thrill Jockey.

Glenn Jones
The Giant Who Ate Himself And Other New Works For 6 & 12 String Guitar

With a title I could well imagine existing as a cautionary yet inspiring tale for young children, possibly animated by Studio Ghibli (disclaimer: before we're sued, it wasn't) The Giant Who Ate Himself - And Other New Works For 6 & 12 String Guitar is a beautifully crafted recording by Glenn Jones. It's something to do with the big frog with a little guitar on the front cover. Melodies are spun into fine gold thread in Glenn's expert hands, the master of American Primitive guitar that he is. LP in black or 'frog green' virgin vinyl editions, in heavy stock jacket with sleeve notes, tuning details and download card. CD version in four-panel, LP style gatefold. On Thrill Jockey.

John Parish

The Body
I Have Fought Against It, But I Can't Any Longer

Portland duo The Body push their sound to yet more extremes on their latest LP. I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer sees the pair bringing in a few collaborators - Assembly of Light Choir’s Chrissy Wolpert, Sandworm’s Ben Eberie to name but two - to beef up their already mighty sound. The resulting record is a brooding, abrasive song-cycle, like The Bug & Earth teaming up with Zola Jesus. Out via Thrill Jockey.

Brendon Anderegg
June

After being one half of electronic music project Mountains with Koen Holtkamp, composer Brendon Anderegg began his solo career in the late ‘90s. His return to recording begins with June, a calming work reminiscent of Bernard Parmegiani, Tangerine Dream, Cluster and Popol Vuh. Vinyl only on Thrill Jockey.
  • Vinyl LP (THRILL467LP)

Marisa Anderson
Cloud Corner

Portland’s Marisa Anderson is a masterful exponent of what was once described as American Primitive guitar. Her music is steeped in blues, country and bluegrass traditions, and delivered with an understated confidence. This is her first for Thrill Jockey, and sees her utilising acoustic guitar alongside her customary electric, as well as electric piano. Essential for roots nerds or anyone into the John Fahey / Jack Rose / Glenn Jones continuum.

E
Negative Work

Boston trio E - featuring former members of Karate, Uzi, Neptune and more - drop their second LP via Thrill Jockey. The ten tracks of Negative Work are a tense, bracing mix of hardcore punk, shredded blues and noise rock. As well as the usual suspects - Fugazi, Mclusky - there’s a fair bit of Metz in here too.

Wooden Shjips
V

In which the Shjips, according to the press release at least, trade in some of their trademark hypno-guitar drone for a more laid-back sound. Born out of contemplative takes on the various political and ecological madnesses of last summer, 'V' is intended as an antidote to current travails, "a respite from the insanity". Get in early enough and said respite can even be had on a limited white vinyl version (while stocks last, yada yada).

The Sea and Cake
Any Day

The Sea And Cake are comprised of John McIntire (also a member of Tortoise), Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt and Eric Claridge. They basically write pop music, but their sound is unique: pop music that avoids every cliche with subtlety as its key. There’s a fair amount of technical ability and experimentation thrown in for good measure. Any Day is their first album in six years and their eleventh in a career that spans 25 years. Limited edition pink vinyl, standard black vinyl and CD, all typically beautifully packaged on Thrill Jockey.

Deeper Woods

Spiritual Jazz, drone, minimalist musician, House And Land member and Pitchfork favourite, Sarah Louise uses her Thrill Jockey debut as the platform to showcase her vocal talents for the first time, accompanying her 12-string acoustic guitar to create a haunting folk record. Deeper Woods features guest performances from bandmate Sally Anne Morgan, who has also worked with Steve Gunn, drummer Thomas Nguyen and Jason Meagher.

Mouse On Mars
Dimensional People

Dimensional People is the eleventh album by innovative German electronic fellas, Mouse On Mars. It sees them back on the Chicago-based Thrill Jockey label and is a star-studded affair featuring Justin Vernon, The National’s Aaron and Bryce Dessner, Zach Condon of Beirut, Spank Rock and Sam Amidon to name a few. It’s gotta be good, right? Limited edition coloured vinyl or standard black vinyl versions both come pressed on virgin vinyl with an 8-page 11”x11” booklet, CD is presented in a mini-LP style gatefold sleeve.

Wrekmeister Harmonies
The Alone Rush

The Alone Rush, the fifth LP Wrekmeister Harmonies have served up for Thrill Jockey, is the first that sees the band take to the stage as duo. The group’s miserabilist-in-chief J. R. Robinson now comes with Esther Shaw in tow as an official member. Helped wby several guest spots from Swans bloke Thor Harris, the group make music as brooding and intense as anything in the band’s catalogue to date. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’s cinematic abstractions come to mind, as does Ellis's old fling The Dirty Three.

Brother JT
Tornado Juice

Brother JT, aka John Terlesky has been exploring psychedelic music for years by way of ace underground labels like Siltbreeze and Drag City. He's still at it though and this latest opus on Thrill Jockey continues melting his love for classic songwriting with a more out there approach to garagey psych.

  • CD (THRILL457CD)

Sidi Touré
Toubalbero

On his fourth LP Toubaldero, Malian guitarist Sidi Toure switches up his sound a little and moves from acoustic guitar to electro-acoustic. The resulting LP is an album in the best West African tradition - hot-fingered guitar playing, the dusty harmonies of the desert blues sound, and a way with polyrhythms unique to the Sahel.

Keiji Haino & SUMAC
American Dollar Bill - Keep Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On

Those boys in SUMAC must have been delighted when this opportunity came up: an album with the grand master Keiji Haino! The band, who are already kind of a alt-metal supergroup (members of Isis, Russian Circles and Baptists), coalesced around the ferocity of Haino’s vocals and guitars to create American Dollar Bill - Keep Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On, a lengthy slab of experimental heavy. On Thrill Jockey.

YoshimiO / Susie Ibarra / Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe
Flower of Sulphur

Look man, I write descriptions for Norman Records. If there’s an LP that features YoshimiO (Boredoms), Susie Ibarra and Lichens bloke Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, then I’m obviously dtf. Flowers of Sulphur was recorded at a 2016 performance in Brooklyn art space Roulette. There’s no audio out yet so I can’t tell you what it sounds like but it’s probably sick.

Mouse On Mars
Idiology

German electronic duo Mouse On Mars have been at this music lark for 24 years now. The duo have never felt the need to bow to convention. Their 2001 album, Idiology is now being reissued by Chicago label Thrill Jockey. Pressed on white vinyl with a die cut sleeve and inner sleeve with artwork, this reissue serves to whet your whistle before the release of the forthcoming new album Dimensional People.
  • Vinyl LP (THRILL098LP)

The Skull Defekts
The Skull Defekts

This is the final album from experimental Swedes the Skull Defekts. They are known for somehow melding raucous punk with ritualistic psychedelic folk creating an overwhelming barrage of sound. Someone from, Wildbirds and Peacedrums has joined for this swansong which should see them go out with a bang.

Dommengang
Love Jail

An album as breezy as the artwork suggests, Love Jail sees Thrill Jockey’s Dommengang bang out ten pieces of timeless Americana. The trio produce a powerful but pleasant noise, with fuzzy guitars cosying up to a tight and groovy rhythm section. Tracks like ‘Color Out Of Space’ will be soundtracking printer commercials before 2018 is out.

The Body & Thou
Released From Love / You, Whom I Have Always Hated

If you liked either or both of the excellent, brutally heavyweight collaborative albums put out in the last few years by The Body and Thou, now you can own the pair of them in one double LP set! Released From Love and You, Whom I Have Always Hated are both excellent blackened statements of intent, although the latter album probably edges it for having one of the greatest ever album titles. Reissued by Thrill Jockey.

Emptyset
Skin

What’s this?! Emptyset presenting material that was produced using only acoustic methods of production rather than racks of hardware electronics? Well I never. Of course, mini-album Skin’s four tracks still sound remarkably like Emptyset, despite the different textures at play: hammered zithers, voices and the like. LP on Thrill Jockey.

High quality vintage ambient glitch electronics from Oval circa 1998, reissued as part of Thrill Jockey’s twenty-fifth birthday. Dok is a typically gorgeous suite of shimmering, wavering soundscapes, constructed from sources so deeply processed as to take on an entirely new character. This reissue is the first time Dok has been made available on vinyl since its initial release.

Brokeback

Brokeback are an American music band deeply rooted in the Chicago music scene. The band features members of Tortoise, Exit Verse and The Eternals (among others), and part of Illinois River Valley Blues includes them playing a Rob Mazurek piece. This is like old-timey music put through a post-rock prism by some experts in the field. On Thrill Jockey.

The Body & Full of Hell

There’s something very suited to Chicago label Thrill Jockey about Ascending A Mountain of Heavy Light, a collaboration between The Body & Full of Hell. Unsettling soundscapes punctuated with sudden bursts of abrasive sound, hmm, I reckon fans of the label’s output will dig this. There also some guest appearances from Lightning Bolt’s Ben Chippendale, Assembly of Light Choir’s Chrissy Wolpert and Sandworm’s Ben Eberle. LP pressed on virgin vinyl or CD in typical Thrill Jockey packaging.

SAICOBAB
SAB SE PURANI BAB

Traditional Indian modes hybridise with exuberant contemporary experimentation for this luxurious foil-jacketed double vinyl from Japan four-piece SAICOBAB, courtesy of Thrill Jockey. Here, the band’s debut Sab Se Purani Bab comprises highly unusual, highly groovy combinations of sitar, double bass, various percussion and gamelan and the voice of Boredoms / OOIOO member YoshimiO. Sounding like little else on Earth, these are intercultural encounters of a rather nutty kind.

Upper Wilds
Guitar Module 2017

This here Upper Wilds project is full of star power if you enjoy the noisemaker afflictions of Parts & Labour and Pterodactyl, which, yes we do. You've got Dan Friel in one corner and Aaron Siegel in the other, making a record of thick muk and fine fun, a sorta bubblegum fury that we are told you simply must hear on speakers or else suffer the consequences.

Isotope 217
The Unstable Molecule

Here's a rare gem - an early Thrill Jockey release chronicling the debut album of jazz fusion band Isotope 217, featuring members of Tortoise as the nucleus of the band, with Rob Mazurek of Chicago Underground and Matt Lux of Iron & Wine. You'll also find elements of rock and electronic sounds here, a mix so unstable that the band didn't last past 2000.

Jan St. Werner
Spectric Acid (Fiepblatter Catalogue #5)

Jan St. Werner, of Mouse On Mars fame, spins out on his own once more to get real abstract and ferocious with it. Spectric Acid (Fiepblatter Catalogue #5) is based on some fairly heavyweight sound science, but the important stuff you need to know is that these synthesiser compositions have been tweaked to screw with your perceptions. A delicious disorientating trip.

Jeff Parker
The Relatives

Beloved Jeff Parker and his strange guitar contraption. Saviour of Tortoise and genre polymath, it's no surprise that 2004 release The Relatives is a fine improvised showing in post-bop jazz, a modal exercise of originals supplemented with a take of Marvin Gaye's "When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You?". Rather than just play out his compositions, Parker attempted to create an atmosphere on these tracks, citing '70s recordings as his focus.

Golden Retriever
Rotations

What is great about Golden Retrievers is that they are both golden in colour and they retrieve things (balls etc).

Jackie Lynn
Jackie Lynn

Jackie Lynn is a fictional construct, written and sung into being by Haley Fohr of Circuit des Yeux. This character, who appears to have a chequered past, is also into lush pop drama, and is helped along by Cooper Crain and Dan Quinlivan of Bitchin’ Bajas. Fohr plays the role convincingly.

Glenn Jones
Against Which The Sea Continually Beats

I had no idea that Glenn Jones was in US post rockers Cul-De-Sac but there you go. You learn something every day. This is his 2007 solo album which perfectly demonstrates his style of American Primitive Guitar  - the fingerpicked style invented by John Fahey. First time on vinyl for this one and I’m guessing it will be lovely.

House and Land
House and Land

Sally Anne Morgan and Sarah Louise Henson join forces to create House and Land. Both women being multi-instrumentalists, they have a wide range of musical variety at their fingertips, with Sarah playing the 12-string guitar, shruti box, bouzouki and performing vocals, while Sally plays the fiddle, banjo, shruti box and also sings. These two women make a strong duo. Since their formation (which was not long ago) they've already toured around the U.S twice, with many featuring names. This self titled album heavily portrays their eclectic brilliance as a duo.

White Hills
Stop Mute Defeat

New York psych juggernauts White Hills try something a little bit new here, winding in the guitars a little bit and cranking up the thick industrial production. Stop Mute Defeat is a bad-trip of a record, with influence taken from Cabaret Voltaire and William Burroughs. It's a heavy one and no mistake. Out on Thrill Jockey.

Man Forever
Play What They Want

Oneida super-drummer Kid Millions’s solo project Man Forever has thus far been a focused exploration of pure percussion sounds, but his new record Play What They Want expands the palette a little bit, including voice and other instrumentation from Laurie Anderson, Yo La Tengo, Mary Lattimore and more awesome artists! Kid Millions never disappoints, and the new approaches of this album only give him more ways to wow us. On Thrill Jockey.

Brian Gibson

Entrance
Book Of Changes

I don't understand. Surely Entrance only just released an album last year with the slightly underwhelming 'Promises'? (Copies still available by the way). Reading further 'Promises' was apparently the EP so this must be the big one. It says here that he's been influenced by Townes Van Zandt and Arthur Lee which surely can only be a good thing.

Aseethe
Hopes Of Failure

Iowan three-piece Aseethe love doom and they love drone, and they’ve sort of tried to merge the two here on Hopes Of Failure. The trick is to sludge up and slow down their compositions so that the chewy riffs start to melt into each other: the results will certainly satisfy fans of blackened heaviness. Hopes Of Failure is out on Thrill Jockey.

Emptyset
Borders

More dark and heavy beat-work from Bristol / Berlin’s Emptyset. On Borders, the duo have incorporated some acoustic instruments into their tangled web of brutalist electronics, pushing their sound into some new areas, though don’t worry: this is still music to wreck buildings to. Borders is Emptyset’s first release for the Thrill Jockey label.

Glenn Jones
This Is The Wind That Blows It Out

Glenn Jones is a maestro of the American Primitive style of guitar playing: that sweet sweet Fahey-derived sound we all love so much. This Is The Wind That Blows It Out is Glenn’s 2004 album, now receiving a vinyl release for the first time courtesy of Thrill Jockey. Rich and beautiful music. Oh and by the way, the inner sleeve artwork includes the notes and tunings for all the songs in case you want to have a go yourself.

Entrance
Promises

Entrance is the one-man project of Guy Blakeslee. Promises is his first album for Chicago label Thrill Jockey. It features widescreen orchestrations which surround his inspired storytelling. Although Entrance very much has his own style, Promises, on occasion, evokes the likes of Gene Clark, Townes Van Zandt and Scott Walker. New Pixies bass player Paz Lenchantin (also formerly of Zwan and A Perfect Circle) and Warpaint’s Emily Kokal play on the album.

Radian
On Dark Silent Off

Martin Brandlmayr (drums), Martin Siewart (guitar) and John Norman (bass) is Radian. Their curious 7-track offering, Scary Objects, sees the Austrian experimentalists explore a recorded collection of feedback, fiddlings and glitches before intricately melding soundbites into fully-functioning yet bizarrely unconventional tracks.

E
E

E might reasonably be described as an alt-rock supergroup, being comprised of Thalia Zedek, Gavin McCarthy and Jason Sanford, who have experience in Come, Karate and Neptune respectively. Collaborative debut E manages to reach new grounds of sharp rock that were not quite glimpsed in any of their separate work: mission accomplished! Out on Thrill Jockey.

People of the North
The Caul

More joyful noise from the ever-more sprawling activities of the Oneida family. People Of The North is the side project of that band’s Bobby Matador and drum powerhouse Kid Millions, and The Caul finds them diving once more into heavy minimal jams of immense power. Vinyl only, through a digital download code is included. On Thrill Jockey.

Luke Roberts
Sunlit Cross

Luke Roberts has some pals in big places and here is joined by the likes of Kurt Vile and the guy from Drive by Truckers on an album of rolling finger picked acoustic folk pop that could appeal to fans of Ryley Walker and early Bon Iver. Earthy and unique Americana to warm you through the winter months. 
  • CD (THRILL425CD)

Grumbling Fur
FurFour

We’re big fans of Grumbling Fur here at Norman, have been since the debut LP, Furrier, hit the shelves in 2011 and was followed by the increasingly good Glynnaestra and Preternaturals. Furfour is the latest to the collection and sees the duo continuing their forays into psychedelic synth pop. As ever there’s a simplicity to the songs buried underneath the layers of bulbous synth and catchy pop riffs. It’s infectious and fun. For fans of Moondog, Arthur Russell and Eno.

Rhyton
Redshift

With members of Pigeons, Stygian Stride and, most notably of all, No Neck Blues Band, we can be fairly confident that Rhyton will show us a real cool time. Redshift features these talented instrumentalists weaving around each other in free-mind improvisations, using Greek and Middle Eastern scales as well as whatever American touches they feel like. Grounded psychedelia on Thrill Jockey.

Oozing Wound
Whatever Forever

If the name doesn’t paint a pretty enough picture for you, the nihilist torrent of abuse you get from them for putting their albums on should do it. Discordant, thrashy, trashy, and bash, bash, bash your head against a wall riffs. They care for nothing… except head banging. Vinyl edition comes with etching on one side, but who cares.

Helen Money
Become Zero

Helen Money is the recording name of cellist Alison Chesley. Become Zero was recorded digitally, despite her using analogue recording equipment in the past with Steve Albini. She felt that the range of sounds on offer was wider and easier to build on, manipulate and edit in the digital medium. The album features Rachel Grimes of Rachel’s and Jason Roeder of Sleep and Neurosis. Money has toured with American alternative music royalty in the shape of Shellac, Bob Mould and Nina Nastasia. She also has some admirers on this side of the pond as Portishead asked her to play when they curated the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival.

Wrekmeister Harmonies
Light Falls

Wreckmeister Harmonies mix drone, neo-classical, outrock and extreme metal. They are led by JR Robinson. Essentially a duo, Esther Robinson makes up the other half. Their new album Light Falls features a bunch of interesting guests including Thierry Amar, Sophie Trudeau and Gregory Herzog from Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Ryley Walker and Cooper Crain from Bitchin’ Bajas. Light Falls is their fourth album in as many years. AND it’s on Thrill Jockey.

Marielle V Jakobsons
Star Core

The collaged ambient pop of Marielle V. Jakobsons draws on stilted sound art and fluid melodic movements, which made for a grand adventure on 'Glass Canyon'. On new record 'Star Core' she continues to build from the same elements -- processed violin, a bassy backbone and a myriad of synth tone -- while singing at the same distance of many of your favourite ambient songwriters. Jakobsons is very good at detailing busy ecosystems with her music, so get ready to sink into the details on this one.

Kid Millions
100 Disciplines

Kid Millions is one of the best drummers the world has ever been blessed with: see his work in Oneida, People of the North and Man Forever for the proof. Pleasingly, he was recently given a big commission for a large-scale piece of work for a large percussion and vocal ensemble. The resulting piece, 100 Disciplines, is something new and fascinating, presenting a different aspect of Millions’ creativity. Cassette release on Thrill Jockey, limited to just 100 copies.

Thalia Zedek Band
Eve

Thalia Zedek has worked in plenty of bands, from Come to Uzi to new group E. But her Thalia Zedek band is the purest Zedek outlet. New record Eve has plenty of driving alt-rock power and emotionally heavy lyrics, although the presence of viola and piano in the group open things out nicely. Out on Thrill Jockey.

Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler
Le Revelateur

Harp hero Mary Lattimore and regular collaborator Jeff Zeigler produced this music to accompany a 1968 silent film, Le Révélateur. Zeigler’s guitars and synths twirl themselves around Lattimore’s gorgeous, delay-tinged harp flurries, and the results make an excellent stand-alone album. I’d love to hear it alongside the film. LP on Thrill Jockey.

SUMAC
What One Becomes

So much heavy lineage in this trio. Members of Isis, Baptists and Russian Circles assembled to become Sumac, and they wasted no time developing band chemistry: their veiny-thick instrumental lines tangle around each other tightly, nobody ever missing a beat. What One Becomes is beautifully crushing. On Thrill Jockey.

The Body
No One Deserves Happiness

The album is called No One Deserves Happiness and the band The Body, how do you think it’s going to sound? Predictably, and thankfully, this double vinyl LP and CD on Thrill Jockey is mean, abrasive and inventive experimental metal. There’s plenty of detuned guitars, but the duo also incorporate elements borrowed from hip-hop and electronic music.

Lightning Bolt
Fantasy Empire

Blasting through speakers for over twenty years, Lightning Bolt is a force to be reckoned with. Renowned for their aggressive and noisy approach to music and performances, they have made a name for themselves as unpredictable and relentless. Fantasy Empire is their eighth full length release and we are excited. And scared.
