Earth Readies New Album, "The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull"

The unveiling of the new Earth studio album is upon us. The band returns once again to it’s continuing evolution. Where “Hex” reveled in dark satanic twang and austere american beauty, “The Bees Made Honey In The Lion’s Skull” finds Dylan Carlson and the band growing into a harder, more rock, american Gospel and impovisitory direction framed by truly psychedelic production and blazing guitar sounds.

Earth is also very honored to be joined on this record for three songs by legendary and virtuoso guitarist Bill Frisell. Mr. Frisell adds a brilliant texture and counterpoint to the scintillating and inspired riffs of Dylan carlson and the band. Adrienne Davies joins again on drums lending a classic and steady feel to the proceedings. Steve Moore also returns adding heavy hammond organ and his intense jazz inspired piano playing. Live Bassist Don McGreevy also makes his full length Earth debut on this record. The CD comes nicely packaged in a slip-case/o-card and features artwork by Arik Roper.

"Bees"… will be available in stores on Feb. 26th, however here is a chance to hear it prior to that date by ordering directly from Southern Lord (they also have an exclusively authorized t-shirt and sweatshirt with the killer artwork from the album).

The band is about to embark on a month-long European tour with Sir Richard Bishop. They will have copies of the special tour split 12? with Sir Richard Bishop with them, and now this is the only place to get them as the copies for sale via the Southern Lord store were snatched up in a matter of hours.
