Descalator by DEATH BY GONG releases by Crazysane Records.

Available on Coke Bottle Green Edition vinyl (limited to 200 copies worldwide), and Solid Black Edition vinyl (limited to 200 copies worldwide).

DEATH BY GONG are a new band featuring Jobst M. Feit (RADARE), Peter Voigtmann (SHRVL / ex-THE OCEAN) and Chris Breuer (ZAHN, HEADS.). DESCALATOR is driven by a tension of heavyness and vulnerability, fusing the epic sound of FAILURE or TORCHE with the soft vocal delivery and song craftsmanship of ELLIOTT SMITH, shoegaze guitar clouds in the vein of MY BLOODY VALENTINE and synthetic textures that could be penned by Geoff Barrow (PORTISHEAD, BEAK). A sonic exploration of human decline in all its facets.

The soft vocals delivering their message amidst a din of almost claustrophobia-inducing intensity. Musically it shakes you to the core but the mood like the title suggests is that of a distant removed narrator driving out into the blackness the white lines of the freeway a liberation tinged by the fading red glow of a tired sleeping city. - Everything Is Noise

For mixing and mastering, the band enlisted Joe Joaquin (SLUT, VAN HOLZEN, MUFF POTTER), who helped the band navigate a balance between heavy aggression and pop sensibilities. For the artwork, which abstractly captures the album's thematic core, the band collaborated with internationally acclaimed designer Fabian Bremer (works for TOCOTRONIC, PABST). Bremer—also a member of AUA, VELCROS, and RADARE—additionally makes the only musical guest appearance.

Please note that all orders containing a pre-order item will not ship until the pre-order item is available. To avoid waiting for items, we suggest making two separate orders with readily available items in one order and pre-order items in the second order.
We do our best to insure safe delivery of all items shipped from A Thousand Arms. All vinyl records that are not shrink wrapped will ship with records outside of their jackets to avoid seam splits. Once orders leave our warehouse we are no longer liable for lost, stolen, or damaged products. However, we are happy to work to resolve any issues associated with unforeseen circumstances.
Please take into consideration that most vinyl we sell is pressed in Europe and has already traveled a considerable distance just to reach our warehouse. In some cases, corner damage on vinyl jackets is unavoidable. We do the best we can to double check record quality before dispatching orders to insure your records arrive in the best condition possible.
We make every effort to ship orders with available and in stock items as quickly as possible. In most cases, orders will ship the same day they are placed or the following business day. However, depending on the season, some orders may take up to a full week to leave our warehouse.
Our shipping and fulfillment warehouse is located in Bozeman, Montana (USA).
