The Body And The Earth by thisquietarmy releases October 12th, 2018, via Consouling Sounds (EU) and A Thousand Arms Music (US).
LP for both EU/US are 140g clear, solid blue, and black mixed vinyl with gatefold packaging.
After 13 years of roaming the world as a solo-artist and prolific discography of around 50 releases, THISQUIETARMY has conjured up a band. Fully exploring the new possibilities this configuration entails, he has drafted synths, bass, trumpet and drums to his band. This has vastly expanded the sound palette into surprising territories. thisquietarmy’s eerie soundscapes are still at the core of it all, but the music drifts and fans out in huge way. Mesmerizing as ever, but with an unseen force to engulf the audience in an ebb and flow of aural waves.
"The Body and the Earth", the full band album was recorded in Montreal by THISQUIETARMY (Eric Quach) with collaborators Charly Buss (bass, trumpet) & Marc-Olivier Germain (synths, drums) in their respective Montreal studios, mixed down at Méduse Audio and mastered by James Plotkin. It will be released worldwide by CONSOULING SOUNDS (Belgium / Amenra, Wiegedood, Nadja) & A THOUSAND ARMS (USA) on October 12th, 2018.
thisquietarmy already performs occasionally as a band in the Montreal region. This will be the first time that the expanded line-up format of four musicians on guitars (with Reuel Ordonez on second guitar & trombone), bass, trumpet, trombone, synths and drums will be presented in Europe & North America this fall.
