Wolves In The Throne Room are in the final stages of mixing their forthcoming album, Celestial Lineage. The record has been scheduled for a September 13 release through Southern Lord.
The album is slated to feature guest appearances from Aaron Turner (formerly of Isis) and Jessika Kenney.
Wolves In The Throne Room will be touring in support of the effort this September. More on that will be revealed soon.
Of Celestial Lineage, drummer Aaron Weaver had this to say: “An ornate constellation of imagery is what guides the songwriting process. Cedar temples crowned with burnished bronze domes glimpsed in a remote valley. Wild Midsummer bonfires and feasting on roasted flesh. All of the sounds serve to evoke the images that exist in our minds eye. With this record we’re going to explore an entirely new palette of sound. We want the instruments to sound like the liturgical music of a cedar cult.”
I have no idea what he’s talking about.
