THOU/MOLOCH "Tears That Soak A Callous Heart"
Now available for preorder, the long-awaited pairing of Baton Rouge, Louisiana's THOU with Nottingham, UK's MOLOCH, will be out on 12" and cassette in late June on The Perpetual Motion Machine (US) and Feast of Tentacles (UK). On this monstrous split release, Thou offer up two epic new songs of crushing sludge/doom with hints of melody while Moloch drop three down-trodden new songs of heavy, hateful sludge.
The 12" will be packaged in reverse printed, black and white jackets and heavyweight printed inner jackets, with all copies on clear vinyl, limited to 1000. The cassettes are pro-pressed with black ink on white shells and come packaged with letterpress-printed j-cards, a lyric sheet and a silkscreened patch, limited to 300.
For the pre-order, we have also created a limited run of 12"x19" silkscreened posters that will be included with the first 100 orders from each label (limit one poster per person) and will be available in limited quantities from the bands on tour. Thanks to Adam @ Gilead Media for the printing help!
I hope to have my copies assembled and ready to ship around June 18. It will be in stores and distros shortly after. The bands will have tapes shortly and should have vinyl starting around the second week of their June/July US tour (see dates below).
For those in Europe/UK, please order from Feast of Tentacles.
