On Monday 7th November, Neurosis will be joined by Earth, and on Tuesday 8th November, they are joined by Discharge and Subhumans. These bands represent perfectly the cross-section of music which Neurosis as a collective deeply admire and relate to, which makes these two shows all the more important in this milestone year. Tickets go on sale today. All hi-res artwork across various platforms can be downloaded here.
Prior to that, on September 23rd, Neurosis take a dominant leap with their eleventh full-length, Fires Within Fires. Three decades in the making, and following 2012's Honor Found In Decay, the album is a testament both to the history and future of Neurosis. In true Ouroborean style, Fires Within Fires gives due to its predecessors while progressing forward into the unfamiliar and formidable. Striking the band's signature balance between light and dark, beauty and repulsion, dense sonic heaviness and reflective space. Fires Within Fires is succinct, raw and deeply soulful, an all-encompassing reminder that transfiguration in sound remains their most commanding and inimitable strength. Our first and only glimpse of the music on this record, prior to release date, is sampled in a new video which we shared last week, here you can also marvel at the exquisite album artwork from the renowned Thomas Hooper...
The journey of their music has found the band relishing the unpredictable, embracing the unknown and exploring the possibility of where the music was capable of taking them. Going beyond the remarkable, Neurosis have become unforgettable. Fires Within Fires is the next powerful step towards a destination that has long been and continues to be the very heart of "becoming" for Neurosis.
