Lumbar Streaming Debut LP "The First And Last Days Of Unwelcome"

Today an advance stream of "The First And Last Days Of Unwelcome," the debut LP from Lumbar, is available online.

Lumbar is the experiment implemented by Aaron Edge (Iamthethorn, Roareth, Rote Hexe, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth) and joined by Mike Scheidt (YOB, VHÖL) and Tad Doyle (Tad, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth). Explore the excruciating doom artistry of Lumbar’s "The First And Last Days Of Unwelcome" at Pitchfork.com here.

Southern Lord will release the album on LP/digital November 26th, followed by a CD version direct from the band and a cassette version via Holy Mountain Music, with all of the band’s proceeds going to aid Edge’s medical expenses and treatments. The following press release was also issued about the project:

"The brainchild of Aaron Edge, Lumbar came together earlier this year when he was unexpectedly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. What would be his final musical endeavor before waves of rapidly-spreading pain engulfed him and extended hospital stays became more than frequent, is now his most imperative. Having recruited his brethren Sheidt and Doyle to help his vision see reality, the musical result of this first, and possibly only, release from LUMBAR is as diverse and destructive as one may expect from such a lineup.

"With the varied influence from this trio of musicians coalescing into seven organic and tonally oppressive movements where ghostly passages and spacious expanses of minimalistic disharmony cone to an end in sonic obliteration through mesmerizing and pulverizing, as an array of distinct vocal mantras echo from the heart of it all."
