Phantom Glue Announces "A War Of Light Cones" Album Release

Black Market Activities will release Phantom Glue's new album, "A War of Light Cones," this coming July 16th.

Phantom Glue's second album, and first for BMA, was produced by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studio (Torche, Today Is The Day). Ballou's connection to Phantom Glue dates back to the 90's when he and Matt Oates were band mates in The Huguenots. Black Market Activities also comments:

"Boston, Massachusetts crushers, equally versed in sludge, doom, and noise rock, Phantom Glue churn out their self-proclaimed 'avalanche of distortion' with nods to Neurosis, Trouble, and The Jesus Lizard throughout. Colossal drums and bass charge forth while twin guitars cast evil spells. Exclaim! Magazine has hailed the band's sweet, mountain-moving din as 'a heated bastion of caustic riffs and unearthly girth.' Decibel Magazine praised their 2010 debut as, simply, 'a headbanger's journey.'

"Beneath the music lies a heavy H.P. Lovecraft vibe, conjured through the supernatural lyrics and cover art of vocalist/guitarist Matt Oates. Oates describes A War of Light Cones specifically as 'a nightmare/occult alternate history of Colonial America.' A perfect sample of Phantom Glue's sound and vision, lead track 'Perils' tells the tale of a trapper catching a creature whose pelt grants psychic gifts. Stream 'Perils' via The Boston Phoenix!"

The track listing is:

1. Perils
2. Captain Keith Pierce
3. Neurolizard
4. Bow in the Dust
5. Biocult
6. Arboreal
7. Test Pattern
