BOTSC REVEAL SECOND TRACK PREMIER WITH NEUROT RECORDINGS

NEUROT RECORDINGS has revealed the second track premier for the Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth debut self-titled record available worldwide on 17, February 2015.

[PRE-ORDERS FOR VINYL AND CD w/DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ARE AVAILABLE HERE NOW AT NEUROT RECORDINGS]

Vocalist/guitarist Tad Doyle further comments, “Originally the main riff was one of the first songs for BOTSC, conceived in 2007 and developed over a period of seven years until this release. Lyrically the subject matter is of the notion that one has been here for thousands of years. This comes with the realization that there are ‘old souls’ who may have been here many times and have witnessed glimpses of past lives through a series of déjà vus. Some who have lived as hunter gatherers working soil, some as soldiers on bloody battlefields joining their blades with others flesh, and those who have witnessed their lives as other living beings and animals. This return to ‘here’, being the last time.”

Slated for release worldwide on 17, February 2015 via Neurot Recordings, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth was captured at Robert Lang Studios by Chris Rahm and Doyle’s own Witch Ape Studio in Seattle, Washington by Tad Doyle himself and drummer Dave French and mixed by Billy Anderson (Sleep, High On Fire, Melvins et al). Thrusting forth five hauntingly heavy tracks, with two bonus hymns included on the CD edition the offering serves as Doyle’s first recorded release in nearly fifteen years. Brothers of the Sonic Cloth’s audio manifestations are welcomingly unfamiliar, splicing thick, jagged riffs through chilling post-punk drumming and hulking compositions that blow soulfully hot and desolately cold, sometimes within the confines of one track. Their long-form pieces present the kind of mature ideas and expansive progressions that outpace the listener’s short-term memory leading them off the proverbial map; familiar landmarks like sludge, post-metal, rock all but disappeared over the horizon. Authentic and authoritative, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth is as much a persistent thudding body punch of sonic destructive force as it is a thoughtful statement of awareness and the inescapable raw condition of life.
