Earth have announced plans to release their ninth studio album, Full Upon Her Burning Lips, due out May 24th on Sargent House.
The record was engineered, mixed, and mastered by longtime associate Mell Dettmer at Studio Soli.
“It was definitely a very organically developed record,” Carlson says of the process. “I limited the number of effects I used. I always like the limiting of materials to force oneself to employ them more creatively. Previous Earth records were quite lush sounding, and I wanted a more upfront and drier sound, using very few studio effects.”
Listen below to a brand new song “Cats on the Briar“.
“I feel like this is the fullest expression and purest distillation of what Earth does since I re-started the band,” Carlson says in reflection of Full Upon Her Burning Lips.
Coinciding with the announcement of the new album, Earth has also announced an expansive U.S. tour with support from label mates Helms Alee, full dates below.
