John Frum Posts "Presage Of Emptiness" Music Video

The patron saints of altered states known as John Frum welcome in the golden age of musical enlightenment with "A Stirring In The Noos." Nearly 6 years in the making, John Frum's unorthodox debut maneuvers through 40 minutes of darkly psychedelic and meticulously crafted death metal, acting as a medium for malefic musings, the backdrop of a bad trip.

The mysterious John Frum is the manifestation of four musical minds coalescing in a collective consciousness developed from time spent playing with The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Faceless, John Zorn, Cleric and many more elite projects. This collective statement was issued about the band name:

"The band John Frum borrows its alias from the Cargo Cults of the South Pacific. Similar to American soldiers receiving air-dropped supplies during WWII, these Cargo Cults believed certain behaviors and rituals would bring riches and 'cargo' down from the heavens. Some believed the elaborate flag rituals of the troops working the airfields would bring the arrival of more planes, when in fact the soldiers were just helping the pilots land.

"Essentially, we are all Cargo Cults, misunderstanding cause and effect, creating narratives and outcomes to support our clung-to beliefs about our strange traditions, all in a futile attempt to make some sense of things that simply don't. Amongst other things, our music is a reaction to Cargo Cult Science in modern times. 'A Stirring in the Noos' is our humble greeting, the first transmissions from the mind of John Frum."

Today, John Frum has unveiled a video for debut track, “Presage of Emptiness,” which can be viewed below. The band comments that this track is "a tribute to the ever-ebbing dark: consuming blindly and extinguishing indiscriminately, eclipsing itself and all of creation."
