Telepathy Recording New Album

The instrumetallers from Telepathy have some extremely exciting news regarding their second album, as yet untitled, due in the first half of 2016.

The band will enter the studio on January 11, 2016 and has tapped none other than Jaime Gomez Arellano - who has worked with such luminaries as Paradise Lost, Ghost, Sunn O))), Altar of Plagues and Primordial - to bring his production skill to the record.

The news was revealed originally to Heavy Blog Is Heavy in an interview yesterday, where guitarist Rich Powley stated: "We are chomping at the bit to hear the songs come to life, and to work with such a great producer on this project is a privilege."

You can read the rest of the interview here. In the meantime, the band is due to hit the road at the end of the week, kicking off with a bang playing a show with the reunited Raging Speedhorn in London, before then hanging with Conjurer & Latitudes in Brighton, and Conjurer, King Goat & Iron Swan in Nottingham.

Pit Stories: The Polish Freight Container

The pit is where metal thrives, and there's a million and one stories to be found there, from fans who've had too many and decide to throw down to bands hitting the road for the first time and experiencing the trials and tribulations of touring.

For this week's Pit Story, guitarist Richard Powley from instrumental metal band Telepathy shared a story of performing live in Poland for the first time... inside a freight container. Powley had this to say:

Our pit story comes from one of many interesting shows during Telepathy's first European tour back in 2012. Having had our debut EP “Fracture” receive glowing reviews from across the continent, we were offered a couple of support shows by our friends in Djevera in eastern Germany and the Czech Republic. Not wanting to waste the opportunity, I quickly arranged three additional concerts in Poland, with the first of these being in Gdynia.

As is sometimes the case with DIY tours, we had an alarming email saying the venue for the Gdynia concert had closed down while we were on the road, and the promoter was looking for a new venue. When we arrived, the promoter (our good friend Ola) had managed to secure a DIY space in Sopot, the neighboring town in the tri-city area. What we found were two freight containers, one on top of the other, repurposed into some kind of lecture hall for arts students. Our show took place in the upper container, and with the PA quickly mounted on top of foosball tables and the venue quickly filling, we knew we were going to have a great, if chaotic, show.

Crowds in Poland are wild, and within the first songs a pit had opened up and crowdsurfers were making their way over to the makeshift stage. By the middle of the set, the venue was a complete sweatbox and the floor had begun to bow under the weight of the crowd. Watching this tiny freight container bend under the weight of a packed out Polish crowd was certainly alarming, but made for one the most intense experiences on the tour.

By the end of the set, and due to lack of ventilation in the venue, the onstage microphone had begun to shock me whenever I approached it to address the crowd. The electrics in the freight container obviously weren’t built to withstand metal concerts, and by the end of the night we had a couple of burnt out fuses in our amps.

As we were leaving, a small man - immaculately presented in a full suit and looking rather nervous from the destruction of the venue - came up to us. He was the owner of the hall. Surprisingly, he had loved the show and after we had settled up he offered us all a lap on the go-kart arena he was also running. So, before we set off to our sleeping place for the night, those of us sober enough ended the night racing laps in the dark. A memorable first time in Poland for sure.

Telepathy Announces New Live Shows

There’s nothing quite like a faceful of riffs, and live it’s even better. Instrumental prog-sludge metallers Telepathy have shows to announce, taking them up and down England, including a date with Raging Speedhorn starting a cold November weekender with Midlands-based blackened doomsters Conjurer.

Telepathy’s music is a complex mix, at times post-metal, other times mathy and chaotic, and always sludge-powered. There’s nothing left to say except, to quote the old road dog Henry Rollins, get in the van!

Nov 27th - The Underworld, London w/ Raging Speedhorn, Gurt & Ten Foot Wizard
Nov 28th - Bleach, Brighton w/Conjurer & Latitudes
Nov 29th - Chameleon Arts Café, Nottingham w/ Conjurer, King Goat & Iron Swan
Feb 6th - Yorkshire Riffer, Leeds w/ Extinction of Mankind, Svalbard among others More...
