LESBIAN To Release Forestelevison In JuneSunday, 14th April 2013
Seattle black/epic rockers LESBIAN are entering the single-song/full album fray with Forestelevison, which is set for a June 25 release via Translation Loss Records. According to a press release, the album is a “44-plus-minute all-encompassing force of nature! Never has an album sifted through the deepest trenches of prog-influenced epic-doom and blackened metal to produce such an awe-inspiring aural assault to the senses.”
Recorded at Avast! Studios with longtime producing collaborator Randall Dunn (WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, EARTH, BORIS) and featuring gorgeous artwork by Arik Roper, Forestelevision will be made available on CD (digipack), digital and 2xLP. The 2xLP version will come housed in deluxe gatefold packaging and include an exclusive vinyl-only extended outro bonus track.
Consisting of guitarists Arran McInnis and Daniel La Rochelle, bassist/vocalist Dorando Hodous and drummer Benjamin Thomas-Kennedy, LESBIAN has grown accustomed to composing lengthy eclectic journeys that take the listener through myriad genres ranging anywhere from doom to prog to psyche to ’70s rock to black metal to grunge and beyond.
Forestelevison continues LESBIAN’s music genre-defying journey from their prior full-length on Holy Mountain Records called “Power Hor”, a split 10-inch with OCEAN on Roadburn Records, a self-released two song tour EP, and a second full-length on Important Records called Stratospheria Cubensis.
