Wrekmeister Harmonies New Album Hoards All the Cameos

J.R. Robinson is preparing to release his third album as Wrekmeister Harmonies; Night of Your Ascension drops November 13 on Thrill Jockey. That’s cool enough news, as we’ve backed the unique blend of doom, drone, black metal and noise that populates prior WH efforts. But, dudes/dudettes/countrymen: check out the roll call of special guests on this thing: Lee Buford and Chip King from the Body, Alexander Hacke (Einsturzende Neubauten), Cooper Crain (Cave), Marissa Nadler, Mary Lattimore, Olivia Block, Eric Chaleff (Bloodiest), Dylan O’Toole and Ron DeFries of Indian, Bruce Lamont, Sanford Parker (Twilight), Mark Solotroff (Anatomy of Habit), Solomon Lee Walker, Chris Brokow (Come), and Jaime Fennelly (Mind Over Mirrors). Thirty musicians in total. That’s quite the expanded roster. See how it all coalesces in the album trailer below (with tour dates to follow).
