The album was recorded with producer Kari Nieminen at Noisecamp studios in Turku, Finland at the end of 2012. Pelon Juuret continues in the direction of the group’s previous work, offering up a furious fusion of d-beat hardcore crossed with a highly creative touch of atmospherics — as if Mogwai made a record of Tragedy covers or From Ashes Rise were influenced by Explosions In The Sky.
The album will be released on CD/LP/Digital via Relapse Records on July 9 in North America, July 8 in the UK/World, and July 5 in Germany, Benelux and Finland. A trailer for Pelon Juuret is available here while exclusive pre-order packages are available via Relapse here.
UNKIND previously released five full-length albums and a handful of vinyl-only releases. The band’s catalog is available for streaming via their official Bandcamp page here.
