LOCRIAN Streaming New Album

Esoteric, experimental artisan’s Locrian are currently streaming their forthcoming full-length Return To Annihilation via Spin.com at this location. Spin describes the album as a “an eclectic float down murky, noxious, sludgy waters” and compares the group to everyone from Boards of Canada to Sunn0))) to Neurosis.

Return To Annihilation was recorded by Greg Norman (Pelican, Russian, Circles, Serena Maneesh) at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago, IL and mastered by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering Service. The album will be released as CD, 2xLP, and digital formats on June 25 in North America, June 21 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux, and Finland, and June 24 in the UK and rest of the world.

A two-part concept album inspired by the band’s love for prog-rock progenitors Genesis, Yes & King Crimson, Return To Annihilation is easily the group’s most ambitious recordings to date, dubbed by Pitchfork as both “excellent” and “risky”, by Stereogum as “a corona of dream-pop and visceral shoegaze” and Outburn Magazine as “an excellent effort from one of the world’s most creative, interesting, and uncompromising bands.”

Physical CD and 2xLP pre-orders are available via Relapse at this location with digital pre-orders available via Bandcamp here.

Locrian, located in Chicago, IL and Baltimore, MD, released over 20 recordings on an eclectic array of labels in their relatively short but prolific career.

Additionally, the group announced a short run of dates this June plus an appearance at Kentucky’s Boomslang Festival in September. The shows kick off on June 27 in Montreal. A complete list of dates is included below.

Locrian Tour Dates:

June 27 Montreal, QC Casa Del Popolo
June 28 Brooklyn, NY St. Vitus
June 29 Providence, RI Machines With Magnets
June 30 Baltimore MD Metro Gallery

Sep 20-22 Lexington, KY Boomslang Fest

“This is an excellent effort from one of the world’s most creative, interesting, and uncompromising bands” – Outburn

“If the wrath of heaven sounds anything like Locrian , then archangel Michael has been digging into the prog-rock bin lately” – NPR

“A corona of dream-pop and visceral shoegaze… goddamn is it good” – Stereogum

“Sliding some malicious black metal menace into the gaps created by their dreamlike, sometimes nightmarish, ambient drones… few albums prove to be quite so unsettling” – The Digital Fix

LOCRIAN Premiere New Song

Esoteric, experimental artisan’s Locrian premiered a brand new track from their forthcoming full-length Return To Annihilation. The song Two Moons described by Invisible Oranges as a combination of “noise rock, drone, electronics and black metal… that may not be conventionally “heavy” yet maintains the weighty themes of dread and desolation” is available to stream here.

LOCRIAN: Premiere New Song via Invisible Oranges
East Coast Tour June 27-30
Return To Annihilation coming June 25 via Relapse Records

 

The group previously released songs via NPR here and Pitchfork here. The entire record is set to stream next week via Spin Magazine. Request Locrian tunes on The Welding Room.
