New Album "This Island, Our Funeral" Announced By Falloch

U.K. atmospheric folk act Falloch announced that the band's sophomore release will be entitled "This Island, Our Funeral" and will drop via Candlelight Records on September 22, 2014.

Formed as a two piece in 2010, with their debut album, "Where Distant Spirits Remain" (see review here), the band worked with Ronan Chris Murphy (King Crimson, Ulver) exploring the atmospheres and feelings found within the landscapes of Scotland to create a vivid journey encapsulating the beauty of this small country.

Thematically aiming for a darker direction with "This Island, Our Funeral," Falloch still manage to capture the atmosphere of the Scottish landscapes while creating a more direct and energetic sound. In writing this album, Falloch was inspired to create a stronger coherent sound as a band and to have more charismatic lead vocals, performed by new vocalist/guitarist Tony Dunn.

On the six tracks of the album, the band takes the listener on a journey from tranquil serene sounds and landscapes through to thick walls of sound brought together by soaring vocals and emotive performances. Recording the drums at Jaime Gomez Arellano's Orgone Studios (Ghost, Cathedral, Ulver) in September 2013, has proved to be a great experience and the band decided to return to work with Gomez for the mixing and mastering in February 2014 after being awarded funding from Creative Scotland to help produce a second album.

The track list for the album is:

1. Tòrradh
2. For Life
3. For Uir
4. Brahan
5. I Shall Build Mountains
6. Sanctuary
