Earth have confirmed what is sure to be a very special show at London's Union Chapel next March with a stellar supporting bill from Mount Eerie + Ô Paon. Info on their new album:
The second half of the Angels of Darkness/Demons of Light is at hand and earth are ready to unveil it on the highways and byways of the UK and EU. Recorded in the same 2 week session as produced the first part, Angels of Darkness/Demons of Light II carries on in the freely improvised/folkloric vein of the title track from the last release. Tape was rolled and spontaneous composition occurred. The line-up again consists of Adrienne Davies on drums and percussion(on this release there is more percussion of all sorts), Lori Goldston returns on cello, and Karl Blau plays bass. This marks the first time the band on the record has toured outside of the US west coast in preparation for the album. It again has amazing artwork by Stacey Rozich. Many reviewers have found this half more hopeful and less dark and death oriented than previous work. Song titles include 'sigil of brass', 'his teeth did brightly shine', 'multiplicity of doors' (a waltz!), 'the corascene dog', and 'the rakehell' ( a completely unanticipated direction for earth on this album). The next year will see much touring from earth and some startling solo endeavours from Dylan Carlson.
