That is, Ascent, the new sonic instance from Six Organs of Admittance, which broke through Earth's atmosphere before the leaves turned, back in August. Sent from space and channeled through the axe and voice of Ben Chasny, it's not just a relic to be held and maintained and played on your turntable - no, it's a skin-peeling thrill of a live experience, too. If you're going to be here for the rest of time, you might as well not regret any of the moments of now you have to experience, you know? Having already launched it the Western coast of North America, the Six Organs of Admittance Ascent touches down this weekend in European airspace, with the first encounter set for Brum, UK's gay ol' Supersonic Festival. In tote and of EXTREME note, it's not just any old Six O-band, but a band comprised of Comets on Fire-mates, just like the album! 'The fuck will that be like? Probably something kinda like how the LA Times described a recent show: " the group built towering, majestic cathedrals of electrified sound, lifting the crowd by sheer force of electricity and vibrations.." Holy head-balls! That shit (aka music, physically experienced) sounds meta-heavy - like Ascent! And they're coming back state-side this December? Rad! Sold! But don't just believe us (or some hack journalistas) - get up, stand up and ride yr. very own rocket to one of these fine rock n' roll holes in the wall to see and believe for yourselves!!!
