NEUROSIS: Classic Sovereign EP To See Official Neurot Recordings Reissue Including Previously Unreleased Bonus Track


For the last 26 years, NEUROSIS have tapped into the elusive wellspring where resonance and dissonance collude, circling emotional poles where nothing is withheld, where the psyche screams for answers to Earth’s ancient mysteries
Following the recent reissues of some of NEUROSIS‘ most seminal groundbreaking earlier albums — Souls At Zero and Enemy Of The Sun — Neurot Recordings are now prepared to unveil the details on the next installment of this reissue series, with a new pressing of the band’s infamous Sovereign EP. Originally unveiled in 2000, the Sovereign EP was the first NEUROSIS release issued through the band’s own then newly-founded Neurot Recordings, with the vinyl pressing handled by Hydra Head. In chronological terms, Sovereign served as a millennial segue between two of the band’s two revered full-lengths of that era; 1999’s Times Of Grace and 2001’s A Sun That Never Sets
The EP, though shorter than a NEUROSIS full-length opus, is a psychotropic experience of the highest order. And to top that off, this Neurot Recordings CD reissue also includes a previously unreleased fifth track, with the inescapably feedback-tormented hymn “Misgiven” closing out the reissue, added as a special bonus to this repressing of the recordings. The reissue comes bound in an O-Card/jewel case setup like the other recent NEUROSIS reissues, with artwork completely redesigned and updated by Aaron Turner.
Sovereign Reissue Track Listing:
1. Prayer
2. An Offering
3. Flood
4. Sovereign
5. Misgiven* [newly released track]
The reissue of Sovereign will be released in North America in September 2011. Stay tuned for more updates on the reissue and on NEUROSIS actions as a whole throughout 2012, as the band plots more live appearances for the coming months, and as they continue to culminate their energies into the band’s upcoming new full-length release.

UFOMAMMUT: Supernatural Italian Doom Unit Sign With Neurot Recordings

It comes with absolute honor to finally announce the meeting of marvelous minds, as Italian masters of thunderous psychedelic doom UFOMAMMUT sign to Neurot Recordings for their next album. Their last album, Eve, was met with great critical acclaim worldwide, and judging by the studio updates we are receiving, their next opus will be even more epic in its proportions and probably their heaviest and most cacophonous record to date.

This is what Neurot owner Steve Von Till had to say about the signing: "Welcome UFOMAMMUT to the Neurot family. UFOMAMMUT is our kind of band. These sonic brothers from Italy are heavy, psychedelic, and driven. We couldn't be happier than to have them working with Neurot Recordings for their next full-length album. Though we have been fans of their music for a while, being able to meet them and share the stage with them on our recent trip to Europe was awesome. We formed a great and meaningful bond, which of course is the most important aspect of what we do. We admire their prolific nature as visionary musicians, as members of the Malleus art collective, and as owners of their own label, Supernatural Cat.  They truly embody the same spirit of music and art that we all strive for. UFOMAMMUT is in the studio at this very moment working on their next epic."

UFOMAMMUT also commented..."Working with Neurot signals an evolutionary change for UFOMAMMUT. In the last years we've built up our own music world, doing everything by ourselves, working on our own art and recordings, creating a label, and taking care of every aspect of our projects.

We feel very excited by this change because this confirms that we did a good job, especially coming from these guys who we have always considered a great inspiration.

We're sure this Neurot and UFOMAMMUT friendship will open new perspectives and directions in our sonic adventure, because we feel we have the same vision and attitude about what music should be. In few words we feel totally honored and proud to become a part of the Neurot Family."

This news really does mark the alliance of almighty talent and we hope that you will follow this story as it unfolds in the coming weeks, more news as and when we can bring it. In the meantime, European fans can catch UFOMAMMUT on tour beginning next week and into October. See the full tour routing at this location.
