Om Sets Release Date For Third Album, "Pilgrimage"

Southern Lord Recordings and Om have set October 2, 2007 as the official release date for their 3rd (first on Southern Lord) full-length album. This album is entitled: “Pilgrimage” and was recorded at Electrical Audio in Chicago, IL. by Steve Albini. The album is currently being mastered by Bob Weston (also in Shellac) at Chicago Mastering Services. “Pilgrimage” expands on their unique use of riff, cadence…chant, as heard on previous recordings yet finds the band expanding their vision into new territories. Of particular note is how much the song-writing has developed and in turn makes the dynamics of the songs much more intensely powerful.

The track listing for “Pilgrimage” is as follows:

1. Pilgrimage
2. Unitive Knowledge of the Godhead
3. Bhimas Theme
4. Pilgrimage (reprise)

A gatefold LP version of the album will also be released sometime shortly after the CD release.

Om will also be performing live on the following dates:

September 13 Cleveland, OH Beachland Ballroom
September 14 Chicago, IL Empty Bottle w/ Circle
September 15 Chicago, IL Empty Bottle w/Daniel Higgs
September 16 Newport, KY Southgate House
September 19 Tempe, AZ Marquee Theatre w/Pinback
September 20 Albuquerque, NM Sunshine Theatre w/Pinback
September 21 Oklahoma City, OK Bricktown Live w/ Pinback
September 22 Dallas, TX Palladium Ballroom w/ Pinback
September 23 Austin, TX Emo’s

Stay tuned for East Coast dates in November and West Coast in December.

Samples of the new recording will be made available on Southern Lord in the near future.
