THE ATLAS MOTH To Release “The Old Believer” In JuneTuesday, 8th April 2014
THE ATLAS MOTH, the Chicago-based quintet Pitchfork described as implementing “everything from stoner metal to psychedelic rock, free jazz to electric blues” in their music, release The Old Believer on June 10 via Profound Lore Records.
“This record is an equally large progression as between our first two records but this time is coupled with more experience,” explains singer/guitar player Stavros Giannopoulos (who also moonlights in black metal super group, Twilight). “I feel like we found ourselves on An Ache for the Distance and now we are expanding on our sound more than ever. It’s also the most personal and introspective music we have ever done. We are wearing our hearts on our sleeves with every note.”
The Old Believer, produced The Atlas Moth’s own Andrew Ragin at Chicago’s Wall To Wall Studios, features guests Joe Duplantier (Gojira), Marcus Eliopulos (Stabbing Westward) and Subrosa violinists Kim Pack and Sarah Pendleton. The album’s cover and back art feature a water-reveal stock, which when dipped in water, more graphics are revealed.
