We are happy to be able to share more details about our forthcoming album, Celestite. Celestite is an experimental, instrumental companion to our previous album, Celestial Lineage. It was a challenge and a pleasure to take a temporary break from our usual palette of sounds to focus on the synthesizer oriented psychedelia that lurks in the mix of our previous albums.
After the long process of recording, mixing, mastering and creating the artwork we’ve approved the vinyl test pressings and graphic design. CDs and gatefold double LPs are in production. The North American release date for Celestite will be July 8th 2014. This will be a very special event for us was will be the maiden release on our new label, Artemisia Records which will be our outlet for future recordings.
The cover art and track listing for the album are below.
1. Turning Ever Towards The Sun
2. Initiation at Neudeg Alm
2. Bridge of Leaves
4. Celestite Mirror
5. Sleeping Golden Storm
Wolves in the Throne Room will also return to the road this Summer, with a run of West Coast North American tour dates. Tickets are available now.
After a long and restful hiatus, we are very much looking forward to returning to the stage. The setlist is developing, but I can say that we’ll be playing songs off of Diadem of 12 Stars, Two Hunters and Celestial Lineage. We are especially excited to perform some epic older songs that we have never before played live. Our new album was very much a studio project, so we won’t be performing material directly off of Celestite. But we do plan on bringing a larger array of synthesizers on the road to expand the sonic journey into deeper realms.
