Corrections House‘s debut LP, Last City Zero, is out now on Neurot. It’s received no shortage of hyperbole around its apocalyptic atmospherics, and I guess at some point soon I’ll probably add a dose of my own to that mix — please try to contain your excitement. Currently on tour in Europe and with two slots at Roadburn ahead of them, the considerably-pedigreed outfit will start 2014 on the road down the West Coast of the US. They’ve also got a new video out for the song “Bullets and Graves” from Last City Zero and while I wouldn’t recommend it for epileptics, you can watch at your own risk on the player that follows the PR wire info below.
It’s like this:
CORRECTIONS HOUSE: Nihilistic Collective Announces Stateside Takeovers; March Through Europe Underway
Having just begun their march through Europe, today the CORRECTIONS HOUSE legion — Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), Sanford Parker (Minsk) and their minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury — announce a short run of Stateside takeovers to usher in 2014. Set to commence January 2nd in Seattle, CORRECTIONS HOUSE will pillage their way through Portland, Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco, leaving souls in torment and stages in ruins.
CORRECTIONS HOUSE are currently touring in support of their Last City Zero debut, issued via Neurot Recordings in late October. Produced by Parker at Electrical Audio, Soma Studios, 60 Psycho Hum and Nodferatu’s Lair, Last City Zero is an audio product of societal ruin and psychological decay. At once beautifully hideous, graceful and terrifying, the record travels far beyond the confines of any one specific genre and continues to reap the applause of exploratory fans and critics globally.
In related news, CORRECTIONS HOUSE recently unleashed a video for the track “Bullets And Graves” upon unsuspecting masses. Directed by Brian Sowell, “Bullets And Graves” is a flagrantly violent, roadside nightmare dominated by shady characters, vicious beatdowns and nameless destinations. Shot completely in black and white, the production is as captivating as it is disconcerting.
