As Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II — the new full-length from Seattle’s EARTH — nears release next week, Pitchfork is now hosting an exclusive stream of the entire album! Tune in and drop out to the record RIGHT HERE.
Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II will be released by Southern Lord in Europe on Monday 13th February and on North American soil on Tuesday, February 14th. While recorded by Stuart Hallerman and mastered by Mell Detmer in the same sessions as its predecessor, Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light I, the second chapter in the series invokes even more improvisational and unrestrained energy. The new album is being praised by journalists across the globe as one of the paramount albums in EARTH’s storied, ongoing lineage, now over two decades long and you can read Tom’s review of Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II HERE.
EARTH have also recently booked an album release show for Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II, in their home town of Seattle. The performance will take place at The Highline on February 25th with opening support from Low Hums and Cold Lake being provided. Several days later the band will embark on their newest European tour including a stop at All Tomorrow’s Parties’ upcoming festival curated by Jeff Mangum at Butlins Holiday Centre, Minehead, England, alongside The Magnetic Fields, Thurston Moore, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Boredoms and countless more.
