Following on from their split with Irk in 2015, 'Host' is the latest offering from Wren, which reveals their most refined material to date.
Whilst Host unreservedly reflects the stylistic impact of genre pioneers Converge and Neurosis, Wren have deliberately filtered this influence through the acerbic lens of The Jesus Lizard, and in an attempt to separate themselves from the quagmire of post-metal replicants, Wren have forged something sonically and conceptually imposing.
A full track from the record will premiere next week.
Holy Roar Records and Uncle M are very excited to announce the return of Apologies I Have None on this exclusive 4-track split single with Australia's incredible Luca Brasi. Featuring one new song and one rarity from each band this is the first taste of new material by both bands. Set for release on April 22nd on cassette by Holy Roar (limited to a one-time pressing of 200 copies on grey and blue cassettes) and digitally by Uncle M, this release shows a new side and progression to Apologies I Have None and Luca Brasi.
AIHN turn in the first taste of their forthcoming 2nd album, out later this year on Holy Roar/Uncle M in the form of the driving, brooding and anthemic 'Wraith'. They back this up with 'Red Wine' - exclusive to this release.
Luca Brasi meanwhile give us the hugely catchy new song 'Aeroplanes', backed up with 'Borders And Statelines' from the band’s 7” of B-sides 'Loose Threads' which was released on Poison City Records.
Cassette preorders are available now (all cassettes come with download).
