Modern Life Is War have unveiled the second installment in their ongoing singles series titled Tribulation Worksongs, featuring two tracks, “Revival Fires” and “Indianapolis Talking Blues“.
Continuing the aesthetic of Volume 1, the lyrics/credits of each song were typed by Modern Life Is War vocalist/lyricist Jeff Eaton on his 1950’s Royal “Quiet De Luxe” antique typewriter. These were later hand stamped on the front and back covers by artist Jacob Bannon, making each cover totally unique. The labels of the vinyl were also hand stamped before final assembly by the people at Deathwish. Both tracks on Tribulation Worksongs: Volume 2 were recorded by Luke Tweedy at Flat Black Studios and mixed by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios.
Watch below the music video for “Indianapolis Talking Blues”.
