Following last year’s highly successful ATGCLVLSSCAP, an album of largely improvisational, rock and electronic soundscapes, comes a brand new studio album from Ulver – their first since 2011’s Wars of the Roses.
The Assassination of Julius Caesar arrives 7th of April and pre-orders went online a bit earlier today. In addition to unlimited black we have pressed 500 gold, 500 clear/transparent and also 300 gold/black marble versions of this colossus of an album.
Unfortunately the band jumped the gun – before we had time to write this – and the marbles were gone with the wind mere moments after their Facebook post today. Not in our wildest dreams had we foreseen such enthusiasm. So, our sincere apologies to those of you who did not see said post or get a heads up from us. We hope you can forgive us and enjoy a regular gold, or clear, of which there are still plenty left.
The thing comes as 180 gram vinyl housed in black poly-lined inner bag, thick (matte) card stock sleeve, 5mm spine, including a 12” matte paper booklet, 24 pages. All in protective PVC exterior sleeve. Recorded and produced by Ulver and mixed by legendary producer Martin ‘Youth’ Glover alongside Michael Rendall.
SIDE A: Nemoralia, Rolling Stone, So Falls the World, Southern Gothic
SIDE B: Angelus Novus, Transverberation,1969, Coming Home
Never afraid to make bold musical statements or broaden their already expansive sonic palette, this new album is no exception. We predict that jaws shall drop!
