Author & Punisher Reveals New Album "Women & Children" Details

West Coast-based Author & Punisher, the long-running, one-man industrial doom project propagated by sound contortionist Tristan Shone, is pleased to announce his fifth and latest creation of audio rebellion. Titled "Women & Children," the follow-up to last year’s "Ursus Americanus: full-length further challenges the traditional confines of extreme music with eight tracks of audio exploration and mechanical decomposition.

Shone elaborates: "Author & Punisher's newest sonic endeavor combines elements of both machines and more traditional apparati to stretch and blur the dynamic palette from doom to industrial, to heavy bass music, and back again."

Adds Seventh Rule Recordings label head Scott Flaster: "The new Author & Punisher? On first listen I was thrown into a grey world where the bleakness of early industrial music layered with a heavier contemporary dirge."

The "Women & Children" album will be released on April 30 via Seventh Rule Recordings. The track listing is as follows:

1. Women & Children
2. In Remorse
3. Melee
4. Tame as a Lion
5. Fearce
6. Miles from Home
7. Pain Myself
