CORRECTIONS HOUSE: Debut London Show Announced, April 12th

Following the release of their debut full-length recording, Last City Zero via Neurot Recordings, we’re happy to announce that Corrections House, the collective musical extractions of Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), Sanford Parker (Minsk) and their minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury, will be coming to the UK on April 12th for a single London show after their appearance at Roadburn Festival.

Tickets for the show, which will be taking place at 
Dalston’s Birthdays, are available here.

Corrections House themselves will be preaching the end-time message with apocalyptical zeal from their righteous pulpit atop the main stage of the 013 venue in Tilburg, at Roadburn Festival 2014, on Thursday April 10th, hoaxing the system and smashing out selections from Last City Zero.

The individual members will play a second show on Friday, April 11th at Het Patronaat, and for this show, Scott Kelly, Mike IX Williams, Sanford Parker and Bruce Lamont will each perform solo material, aided and abetted by a selection of the others as they see fit.

Corrections House is a meeting of minds and ideologies that sees all four members incorporating their obvious individual talents and voices but simultaneously carving paths away from the sounds for which they are usually known. On Last City Zero, they traverse tectonic plate-shifting doom and the downcast gloom of Kelly's usual ouevre into mutated industrial hissing and clanging EBM beats from Parker, squalls and drones of oblique saxophone from Lamont and Williams' familiar phlegm-drenched fire-spitting ire and all points in-between.

Check out the sounds of “Bullets and Graves” - the planet-rupturing sound of steel fallingfrom the sky , the mournful tide of “Run Through The Night,” currently streaming at Vice/Noisey (Germany) as well as opening track, “Serve or Survive,” at Pitchfork.

“Whether it’s Mike IX Williams’ grim spoken word poetry or Scott’s coarse, monotone groan overlaying the clangorous soundscapes, it’s the utter bleakness that binds.” – METAL HAMMER

"It sounds very little like anything else the four men have ever been involved with. It sounds, in fact, very little like anything else, period - an overall pitch-dark neofolk atmosphere permeates the entire record but in a very decadent, urban sort of way...A record that oozes danger and menace - and genius - out of reach of its many shady corners." – ROCK A ROLLA

“Last City Zero takes a leaf from the Swans book of misery and abjection, but its elegantly spun shadowplay of apocalyptic folk, pummelling industrial and end-times beat poetry seeks, and sometimes succeeds, in locating beauty in decay.” - UNCUT

"A concise, sharp and very focused collection of eclectic songs. It's as if this surreally talented collection of people didn't know (or didn't want to know) where exactly they were heading, but knew very well how to get there anyway...Face Last City Zero as an experience as you would a trip into the darkest corners of both your mind and your city, with senses alert and aware of the imminent danger. How long has it been since a record made you feel like that?" – TERRORIZER ALBUM OF THE MONTH

“Not only are these men masters of their own individual sounds, they have managed to create something together that is bigger than themselves. And that is a “supergroup” that gets it right.” –GHOST CULT

“This is a record of revolt, of standing up and fighting back, a fist to the face, a flag to truly get behind! A calling to this international nation of the oppressed. This is musically superior, a slow determined march of beats that infiltrates your being and pumps your heart just that little bit faster!” – DESTRUCTIVE MUSIC
