Following the demise of Agalloch in 2016, band members Don Anderson (guitar), Jason Walton (bass) and Aesop Dekker (drums), united with ex-Giant Squid guitarist/vocalist Aaron John Gregory and formed KHÔRADA.
The band was quickly signed to Prophecy Productions while the wait for news and / or music from the quartet began. That brings us to here and now as KHÔRADA have just announced their debut album will be titled “Salt“, and is set to arrive from Prophecy Productions on July 20th.
A track from Salt – which was engineered, mixed, and produced by Billy Anderson and mastered by Justin Weis – titled “Ossify” is streaming below. The song features a guest keyboardist, Giant Squid’s Andrew Southard.
The album features cover artwork created by Cedric Wentworth which is also being unveiled at this time. Salt will be made available in various formats including a 2CD hardcover book, a black vinyl LP, a clear vinyl LP edition, and a complete box set also. Pre-order for these can be found HERE.
