‘Initiation at Neudeg Alm’ premiere, West Coast Tour Update

Friends,

We are excited to announce the premiere of ‘Initiation at Neudeg Alm’, a second track off our upcoming album Celestite.  Celestite will be released on July 8th 2014 through our new imprint Artemisia Records.

You can listen to a stream of ‘Initiation at Neudeg Alm’ over at Noisey…

Stream ‘Initiation at Neudeg Alm’ HERE.

Pre-orders of Celestite will begin shipping this week.  Upon release, Celestite will be available internationally through independent retailers and digitally through independent and major outlets.  Pre-orders for Celestite continue to take place at Artemisia Records’ Bandcamp page.

Pre-order Celestite HERE.

We are currently rehearsing for this run of shows and it is excellent to get back to playing music live. We’re especially looking forward to playing some material off of Diadem of 12 Stars that we’ve not played since we recorded the tracks with Tim Green almost 10 years ago!  We are also pleased to announce that our Cascadian brethren Nommo Ogo will join us on all of the upcoming dates.  Nommo Ogo has  stayed in the shadows of the musical underground for a long time, so for those of you who may not be familiar with their works, we have included some background and the accompanying video.

Nommo Ogo emerged from the harsh winters of the late-90’s Anchorage Alaska psychedelic noise scene; utilizing purely electronic instruments to call strange energies through cathartic sessions of improvised tekno ritual. Since these primordial manifestations, the cult has grown and mutated further, and is currently based out of Oakland, California. They have long maintained a tradition playing outdoors under the stars, in the mountainous forests of the West Coast with the Katabatik Soundsystem. Aural documentation in the form of vinyl and CDs has been released by Isolate, Katabatik and Record Label Records.

Stream ‘Celestite Mirror’ & Celestite Pre-order

 

We are pleased to announce the track premiere of ‘Celestite Mirror’, along with the pre-order for our upcoming album Celestite.  Celestite will be released on July 8th 2014.

You can listen to a stream of ‘Celesite Mirror’ over at Pitchfork who had some thoughts…”For  Celestite Mirror, Wolves in the Throne Room build from an eerie drift of synth glow and gentle bass-drum booms into a Vangelis-sized organ roar.”

Stream ‘Celestite Mirror’ HERE

 For those of you who would like to pre-order, we’ll be offering you this album – along with forthcoming releases – on our new label Artemisia Records.  Options for the Celestite pre-order include cleat 2xlp (limited to first pressing), CD digipack with 16 page booklet, and limited edition cassette.

 To commemorate the release of Celestite, Wolves in the Throne Room will return to the road for a West Coast run of performances.  We are currently perfecting the setlist and production which will include some epic older songs never before played live as well as an array of synthesizers to expand the sonic journey into new realms.

Celestite release details & West coast tour dates‏

 

We are happy to be able to share more details about our forthcoming album, Celestite.  Celestite is an experimental, instrumental companion to our previous album, Celestial Lineage.  It was a challenge and a pleasure to take a temporary break from our usual palette of sounds to focus on the synthesizer oriented psychedelia that lurks in the mix of our previous albums.

After the long process of recording, mixing, mastering and creating the artwork we’ve approved the vinyl test pressings and graphic design.  CDs and gatefold double LPs are in production.  The North American release date for Celestite will be July 8th 2014.  This will be a very special event for us was will be the maiden release on our new label, Artemisia Records which will be our outlet for future recordings.

The cover art and track listing for the album are below.

 

1. Turning Ever Towards The Sun

2. Initiation at Neudeg Alm

2. Bridge of Leaves

4. Celestite Mirror

5. Sleeping Golden Storm

 

Wolves in the Throne Room will also return to the road this Summer, with a run of West Coast North American tour dates.  Tickets are available now.

After a long and restful hiatus, we are very much looking forward to returning to the stage.  The setlist is developing, but I can say that we’ll be playing songs off of Diadem of 12 Stars, Two Hunters and Celestial Lineage.  We are especially excited to perform some epic older songs that we have never before played live.  Our new album was very much a studio project, so we won’t be performing material directly off of Celestite.  But we do plan on bringing a larger array of synthesizers on the road to expand the sonic journey into deeper realms.
