About this product

Batoh is back! Solo again after last fall’s new Silence album, the Japanese psychedelic guru makes some solo cuts, withothers featuring Ghost and Silence family members, including free drumming legend of Fushitsusha and early Ghost, Hiroyuki Usui. In all-analog production, Batoh decries the existential opacity of our latter-day faith, drawing from thetraditions of all countries, fused into new music for this century.

Attention all under-rock-dwellers; the LP release of this record has been delayed due to the current pandemic (look out your window/cave entrance!). As this music is (incorrectly-labelled) government-mandated 'non-essential' contraband, we cannot yet determine when the means of production will be available to make this physical product on vinyl for you. We will keep you updated as we know more. Meanwhile, the digital release date (including CD) will remain the same.
