The Ditch And The Delta Premieres Full "Hives In Decline" Album

Mark your calendars: May 12th, 2017 is the day you get sludged straight to death!

That's the day Battleground Records will further expand the label’s already-diverse roster with SLC squadron The Ditch And The Delta's debut LP "Hives In Decline."

Engineered by Andy Patterson of Subrosa, "Hives In Decline" shows The Ditch And The Delta exploring further aspects of sound design, from sludgy doom to math metal for a style the band simply terms "Big Riff."

Employing different tunings and modal centers, every song the band writes manages to avoid many of the usual doom trappings of excessive feedback, static harmony, and pentatonic riffs. The lyrical content deals with everyday life and the constant suppression and alienation that comes with it. Three men from Mormon-dominated Utah are bound to have a lot of resentment and disdain for the mono culture they exist in daily.

You don't have to wait any longer to hear the end result for yourself, because today we're premiering the entire album ahead of release - listen in below!

Pre-orders are online right here. The album includes a swarm of solos by Gentry Densley (Eagle Twin, Iceburn) on the song “Fuck On Asphalt," and the full track listing is as follows:

1. Hives In Decline
2. Fuck On Asphalt
3. Sleeping Dogs
4. Dry Land
5. Till Body Quits
6. Mud
7. Dread Spectacle
