about

After the release of Ausserwelt, awesome record and critically acclaimed second album by YEAR OF NO LIGHT, we started talking last year with our old friends from Bordeaux about releasing something new from them. We talked about several projects of split and collaborations and eventually all agreed on the idea of sharing a new record with THISQUIETARMY from Montreal, Canada. This record pushes the idea of sharing a record to the extreme. Both sides start with a new song from each band, long songs (approx 12 min) which let both bands enough time to developp their own ambience full of intensity and melodic loops. These new songs are followed by collaboratives drones which prove that these two bands were made to work together and share a record. The atmosphere is dark but always full of melodies and progressions. The record deserves several playings for the listener to really hear all nuances and details. THISQUIETARMY will be on tour in europe in april with AUN. YEAR OF NO LIGHT will do a very few live appearances in the coming months since they started working on a new album after their Russian trip. Artwork has been done by the dedicated Destructure team. This collaborative effort will see the light of day in three versions : you'll be able to choose between three wax colours, white, transparent clear and black.

April 2012.
