Ascent comes but once this year- August 21st, man! That's when the new Six Organs of Admittance LP lands on the racks, intercepting your ears and mind. Album track "Waswasa"'s been buzzing around for months now, it's not-so-secret satanic sounds blown out with abandon. It's merely one example of Chasny's vision, one that can be traced to his mind-forward realization of an epic, science-fantastic trip involving humans in space and the combination of fallibility and cold fate that our lives mean in the crushing all-jaws of the Universe. As the idea propelled, time-travel seemed to be the only way to realize it- for who better to help Ben launch the space-craft than his old Comets on Fire-mates, especially since they all shared a bit of history that both happened and didn't happen? So come on and join the circle- dig another gravity-demystifying track from Ascent, "One Thousand Birds!" And get fucking pumped with jet fuel- the west coast leg of the Six Organs of Admittance Ascent tour is finally announced, dates below! And yes, there will be Comets involved in somma these dates. Don't worry east coast-ers, you'll face your reality soon enough! In the meantime, jam on "One Thousand Birds" and grab a copy of the "Parson's Blues" 7", featuring non-album tracks from the Ascent sessions!
