Here Is The News

After an interminable wait, > Greater Than's latest album The Recidivist is finished and will be available at your favorite digital music provider November 2nd, just in time for the election (aka the collapse of civilization as we know it or something)...the long-awaited Karee Karau EP Weltschmerz is finished and just needs an album cover, we are probably looking at a Janaury release on this. As a teaser, we have made available in our archive section a recently unearthed Karee Karau improv called Angespannte, recorded at some indeterminate time in the distant past, as well as some fresh cuts from the archive of a timely nature, including a live-in-studio rough performance of part 1 of The Recidivist, and just in time for Election Day, an Infernal Garage track from November 3rd 2012 Scrapegoat's Bleat...just remember to leave the Scrapegoat alone and GET OUT THERE AND VOTE! Also, check out our most recently released video Garage Collage. Be careful out there, stay safe from the virus and the rampant insanity, thanks for visiting and listening!
