The Italian psychedelic power trio UFOMAMMUT are currently in the process of forging their eighth LP, following their heady/heavy 2015 epic for Neurot Recordings, Ecate. The band are knuckling down at Crono Sound Factory in Vimodrone, just north of Milan, the first time recording with their soundlord Ciccio and his comrades of Femore Production. Having spent much of the past year refining their exploratory jam sessions to make them fit for purpose - expect more of their inimitable dense, organic riffing to emerge in 2017, with teasers on the way sooner.

Having just wrapped up a European tour which included dates with their friends in Neurosis and fellow countrymen Grime, UFOMAMMUT have their sights set on Australia and New Zealand, and will be travelling there in early October with the masters of doom tone, Monolord. Those dates are followed by further European shows, which include a performance at this year's Damnation Festival in Leeds on November 5th, alongside Electric Wizard, Enslaved, Cult of Luna, Akercocke and many more, plus a London show.

NEUROSIS’ recent excursion through Europe included sets at major festivals including Brutal Assault, Festa Radio Onda D’Urto, Rock Altitude, Oya, Pukkelpop, Motocultor, Amplifest and more, and saw the band beginning to play material from their impending Fires Within Fires album, which sees release in September. Now, as the band is just returning stateside from their Euro incursion, they announce the first four North American shows in support of the album. November 25th and 26th will see NEUROSIS playing back-to-back shows in Portland, with support from Neurot labelmates YOB and Kowloon Walled City. And just three weeks later, the band will perform in Seattle and Vancouver, BC, December 19th and 20th, respectively, with support from YOB and Sumac.

One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache came together during last year’s monolithic North American trek which united both bands. Amidst the chaos of tour life, the two groups found time to record together at Machines With Magnets in Providence, Rhode Island. The session eventually culminated into the harrowing sounds found on One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache, which is ultimately an audio reflection of their surroundings and their inability to cope therein. The record includes two bonus tracks as well as a bastardized rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “The Butcher.”

Pitchfork dubs the offering, “…a document of the overwhelming power of depression,” Metal Injection observes, “One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache is unusual, disgusting, and just as harrowing as you’d come to expect from either THE BODY or FULL OF HELL. It’s one of the only truly unhinged albums that has come out in the last several years,” while Decibel issues, “There’s some fucked up chemistry on their collaboration. On tracks like ‘Fleshworks’ and ‘The Little Death,” the bands forge new sounds that couldn’t have happened in any other context. Mostly though, the reinforce each other’s impulses towards abstraction.” New Noise Magazine calls the record “…an absolute assault on your senses that will leave an imprint for years to come…. For maximum experience, listen at full volume in a cold, bare, and unclean room with flickering lights while half naked and in a deranged state.” Adds A.V. Club, “THE BODY and FULL OF HELL are two of the most prolific bands in extreme music. While other groups that release so much material typically lapse into mediocrity at some point, both of these bands are seemingly inexhaustible wells of brilliance. One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache is a perfect example.”

One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache is out now on Neurot Recordings. To order your copy today visit THIS LOCATION.
