Horseback Finishes Recording New Album "Half Blood"

Chapel Hill, NC’s Horseback has completed the recording on a new full-length and follow-up to 2009’s "The Invisible Mountain."

The album, titled "Half Blood," was described by mainman Jenks Miller as “the band’s most ambitious record to date that represents a synthesis of the approaches we've explored in the past.” Truly a natural progression in their increasingly prolific catalog, "Half Blood" was self-recorded and produced by Jenks Miller at The Chateau in the band’s hometown. Additional tracking was done at Arbor Ridge Studios and Track and Field Recording by Nick Petersen.

"Half Blood" is set for a Spring 2012 release via Relapse Records and features cover artwork from renowned Russian surrealist painter Denis Forkas Kostromitin. Relapse Records commented on the album:

"The material on Half Blood is an amalgamation of drone, doom, black-metal, psychedelia, post-rock, noise, and ambience recorded with a wide array of instruments including guitar, bass, drums, keys, piano, bells, contact mics, field recordings, drum programming, noise and various signal processors."

More details on the album including a full tracklisting, cover art, and song samples will be revealed shortly.
