Bosse-de-Nage "All Fours" DLP
All Fours by Bosse-de-Nage is the mysterious Bay Area act's fourth and finest full-length. Monstrous and surreal, the album is a strange mix of black metal, noise and dark, post-modern lyrical themes. Comparisons range from '90s post-rock like Slint to fellow post-black metal brethren Deafheaven (the two bands released a split 12-inch in 2012), but the work stands on its own as a unique creation. Recorded with Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Botanist, Wreck and Reference), All Fours is the most immediate and accessible album in the band's discography, as well as the first to feature analog synths. The Flenser is proud to present Bosse-de-Nage's latest full-length on deluxe, double-disc vinyl packaged with a large twelve-page booklet.
We still have colored vinyl copies of the album in The Flenser store.
Pre-orders for the album have started to ship but we don't expect to ship all pre-orders until next week. April packages are expected to start shipping next week when the Bell Witch Demo LP's arrive.
Heat Dust will be releasing their debut full-length album via The Flenser on September 18th, 2015. This LP sees the band diving headfirst into the nihilistic depths of dark post-punk.
Heat Dust features members Clayton Hunt (guitar and vocals), Shawn Tabor (bass), Christopher Stein (drums), and Jasper den Hartigh (guitar and vocals). Heat Dust started as a three-piece back in 2011 by den Hartigh, Tabor and Hunt. Then, the band added Stein to the fold, as he played alongside den Hartigh in hardcore bands Subservient Fuck and Bloody Mummers. With a lineup shift and a few releases in between, the band really got to know each other as musicians. Guitarist/vocalist Jasper den Hartigh commented, "Our earlier releases were all written in a super short period of time. When it became time to start working on this new record, we were a lot more deliberate about our songs. We had learned how to play with each other much better, and realized where our music tastes intersected. We took a long time to write, going through endless changes in structures and riffs. We wanted to be careful and truly make the best record we could."
With this self-titled record, Heat Dust has perfected their sound; energetic and distorted post-punk with expressionist lyrical content that's influenced by Joy Division, the Chameleons, Wire, Public Image Ltd, Gang of Four, and Killing Joke.
Track postings and pre-orders will be coming soon.
