Experimental hardcore trio Down I Go have premiered their forthcoming album, You’re Lucky God, That I Cannot Reach You, over at Upset Magazine. The album will officially be released this Friday, August 28, via Holy Roar Records and can be purchased here. The record is the first collection of new material since the band initially disbanded in 2011. The band offered the following comments regarding the new effort:
“We wrote this over nine days in virtual isolation at a farm on an ancient, deserted lava field in Western Iceland, …With little more than a store of Icelandic booze, some duty free sweets and a few horses for company. Stealing ideas from a borrowed book on Icelandic Legends, we threw together these ten songs. It was exhausting.
Our shows and media coverage have always woven around Holy Roar bands and we have a lot of respect for the label, so we offered the results to HR and they decided, with a bit of arm bending, to put the album out. We all believe it to be our best, most interesting work to date.”
