Lament Cityscape / Theologian Streaming Split

"Soft Tissue," the collaborative full-length album from Lament Cityscape and Theologian, is due out tomorrow, October 21st. In advance of that release, today the entire record is now available for streaming.

Underscored by a seamless integration of the best qualities of both groups, bowel-wracking percussive attacks, brutally heavy riffs, and boundless drones are juxtaposed with guttural, apocalyptic, howls from the deepest abysses of psychological anguish on "Soft Tissue." Towering portent of calamities awaiting humanity as a whole, obsessively examining the fragility not just of our bodies, but of the subjective moralities which define our civilization as well.

Theologian and Lament Cityscape will perform material from "Soft Tissue" tonight at the opening night of Southwest Terror Fest V: Houses Of The Unholy in Tucson. More...

Lament Cityscape Signs With Battleground Records

Battleground Records has added Oakland-based Lament Cityscape to the label's expanding family of auditory exploration, confirming the release of the band's impending debut LP in September. Battleground comments:

"Massive in sound and cinematic effect, the Lament Cityscape duo eschews easy classification with a broad palette of dark, noisy industrial flavor that coats the raw core of their loud and heavy sound.

"Slightly out of focus and grainy like a phantom in the peripheral vision, the group's debut album, 'The Torn,' is a piece of music that resonates with themes of duality, confusion, and contradiction as it crawls across fifty-two minutes of bleak soundscapes and thunderous percussion.

"The feel and atmosphere that Lament Cityscape captures on the album is reminiscent of the brooding and nebulous angst of early Godflesh, Ministry, and Swans. Each half of the group, Mike McClatchey and Sean McCullough, brings quite a different set of influences to the writing process and this clash of perspectives is evident in the music, resulting in an honest collaboration of immersive material that is urgent and compelling."

"The Torn" arrives on 180-gram vinyl and digital on September 8th, 2015 via Battleground Records. Check out a teaser trailer below. More...
