True Widow, the Dallas trio return have announced their fourth album, ‘Avvolgere,’ on September 23 via Relapse Records. To go along with the album announcement, they’ve also revealed the first single from the album, Entheogen, which is streaming now via Soundcloud below.
Entheogen is available as an instant download with digital pre-orders, which can be found here: truewidow.bandcamp.com. Physical pre-orders are available via Relapse’s webstore: relapse.com/true-widow-avvolgere – they have some cool colour vinyl options.
The band recorded ‘Avvolgere’ with Matt Pence, who recorded their 2013 release, ‘Circumambulation,’ at his Echo Lab studio in Argyle, Tex. earlier this year. “Over the course of three albums,” the Wall Street Journal said in an article on the DFW-outfit, “the Dallas-based band has refined a sound rooted in focused repetition, bass-heavy guitar drones, ethereal vocals, and almost always, crawling temples.” With ‘Avvolgere,’ True Widow perfects their craft, featuring serene, rounded climaxes and steep, jangling choruses that engulf the listener with waves of downbeat, saccharine melodies and mesmerizing distortion.
