“… sonic shades cloak and flicker with resonant depth, ingesting recent orchestral pursuits for something colossal” – NPR review of Threshold Of Faith

 

BEN FROST has announced details of his fifth studio album, The Centre Cannot Hold, out on Mute on 29 September 2017.

The Centre Cannot Hold was recorded over ten days by Steve Albini in Chicago. The music exists not in space, but in a space; it is a document of an event, of a room, and of the composer within it. It is music that is not fully controlled and appears to be anxiously, often violently competing against its creator.

An exercise in limitation and chromatic saturation, The Centre Cannot Hold is an attempt at transcribing a spectrum of glowing ultramarine into sound.

Ben Frost released Threshold Of Faith, a seven-track 12” and digital EP, last month. Pitchfork describe the track title track as “moving from heroic vistas into a garbled, snow-blinded melee. Distant choral pads, a glistening upper-register sheen, submerged piano, and groaning harmonies all stack up into a geologic crescendo that extends into infinity.” while The 405 describe the EP as “scorching and beautiful”.

Ben Frost embarks on a tour in autumn starting on 25 September in Essen, Germany, with a London date at the Electric Brixton on 5 October, full details below.
