Boston’s emitters of bleakly abrasive, doom-possessed sludge, MORNE, are making their return with a new studio album imminently.
“To The Night Unknown“, the band’s fourth recording, will arrive from the Armageddon Label /MORNE Records on September 7th. The eight-song follow-up to 2013’s critically-lauded Shadows was captured at New Alliance Audio Productions by Jon Taft (Since The Flood, On The Might Of Princes), it was also mixed by Jon Taft and MORNE. It was mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright (Mournful Congregation, Abstracter, Integrity, Obituary), and includes photography and design work from Hillarie Jason.
Guitarist / vocalist Milosz Gassan said the following about the new recording:
“It’s been five years since our last release and we are extremely proud of what we have accomplished with this new album. I feel that there was a lot of room to breathe on this one and we didn’t feel imprisoned by anyone’s expectations.“
Riff Relevant is sharing the premiere of “To The Night Unknown” today, the title track of the album, streaming in the Soundcloud player below. To The Night Unknown will be issued on 2xLP, CD, and digital formats. Pre-orders will be available beginning July 27th at THIS LOCATION.
