Weyrd Son Records & Beursschouwburg present:
“The river that everything drags is known as violent, but nobody calls violent the margins that arrest her.”
This quote from Bertolt Brecht is the best way to portray FLEUVE, the devastating new album of belgian outfit THOT. After a decade of challenging its music across several albums, EPs, videos, alternative versions, remixes and european tours, the gang lead by Grégoire Fray is going to bring a breath of fresh air in the industrial-rock and post-rock genres. Produced by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna) and engineered in live circumstances, FLEUVE features 9 songs built around a powerful drums/bass/guitar trio, on which passionate vocals, heavy synths, clarinet laments and bulgarian choirs melt together perfectly. Thereby, FLEUVE is a luminous ode to the european continent and its cultural history, to nature’s immuable inspiration, to women and transcendance. FLEUVE is due 20th of October 2017 on Weyrd Son Records.
+ Special guests:
Public Psyche – Finally given in to the dark side or not afraid of a bold career move? To the surprise of many, Rape Blossoms have decided to change their name to Public Psyche while finishing the follow-up of ‘Starving Vultures at 7-Eleven’ (2011) and ‘Ruinenlust’ (2014). Recorded in their rehearsal space by the notorious Beyt Al Tapes, the third LP ‘No New Violence’ once again offers six tracks, but not exactly more of the same. A strong emphasis on synthesizers, tape delay, and repetition creates a genuine lo-fi mood that connoisseurs might describe as ‘slurry dub/cesspool punk’. ‘No New Violence’ will see the light in September 2017. You will find them in da club, bottle full of bub’. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pA_vqYCdiaQ
