Chicago six-piece experimental ensemble BLOODIEST have announced their sophomore full-length due out January 15th via Relapse Records. Featuring current and former members of Russian Circles, Corrections House, and Yakuza, BLOODIEST have taken the distinctive genre-bending, wall-of-sound heaviness they forged on their debut album Descent to an entirely new level. The album’s first single “Mesmerize” is currently streaming via Noisey, who called the track “the perfect jumping-off point into Bloodiest’s darkened world,” HERE.
Recorded and produced by Chicago super-producer Sanford Parker (YOB, Minsk) and guitarist Tony Lazzara, Bloodiest is a testament to the band’s cinematic vision. Listeners willing to look into the darkness will find themselves taken on a storm-tossed, cathartic journey—and might even see the dawn after all.
Pre-Orders for Bloodiest are available physically via this location and digitally here. Stay tuned for tour dates and more information on BLOODIEST.
