Spook The Horses To Release New Album "Rainmaker"

New Zealand post-metal/hardcore outfit Spook The Horses just finished work on sophomore album "Rainmaker," which is being prepped for release in mid-Winter, 2015.

The band's epic suites are imbued with strings, brass, synthesizers and nuanced guitar (the lineup including three guitarists). The tone of the band's new record "Rainmaker" signifies an evolution from the dense trio of guitars that defined the 2011-released debut album, "Brighter," into the arid and spacious; a descent to the dry, desperate earth.

"Rainmaker" was tracked live at studio Wellington by James Goldsmith (So So Modern, Die! Die! Die!), mixed in Melbourne, Australia by Sam Sproull (Shihad, Cairo Knife Fight, Gatherer) and mastered in Stockholm, Sweden by renowned engineer Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna, The Ocean, Kongh).
