NEUROSIS REVEAL TWO VERY SPECIAL UK SHOWS TO MARK THEIR 30 YEAR ANNIVERSARY, AND TO CELEBRATE THE RELEASE OF FIRES WITHIN FIRES RELEASE DATE: 23 SEPT, NEUROT RECORDINGS

Having marked their 30 year milestone with three shows in San Francisco and two shows at the much respected Roadburn Festival, and with a summer of touring across Europe on the horizon, the anticipation for something special in the UK is palpable. It therefore comes with great delight to announce two very special London shows in November this year with thrilling, and unexpected, special guests.

On Monday 7th November, Neurosis will be joined by Earth, and on Tuesday 8th November, they are joined by Discharge and Subhumans. These bands represent perfectly the cross-section of music which Neurosis as a collective deeply admire and relate to, which makes these two shows all the more important in this milestone year. Tickets go on sale today. All hi-res artwork across various platforms can be downloaded here.

Prior to that, on September 23rd, Neurosis take a dominant leap with their eleventh full-length, Fires Within Fires. Three decades in the making, and following 2012's Honor Found In Decay, the album is a testament both to the history and future of Neurosis. In true Ouroborean style, Fires Within Fires gives due to its predecessors while progressing forward into the unfamiliar and formidable. Striking the band's signature balance between light and dark, beauty and repulsion, dense sonic heaviness and reflective space. Fires Within Fires is succinct, raw and deeply soulful, an all-encompassing reminder that transfiguration in sound remains their most commanding and inimitable strength. Our first and only glimpse of the music on this record, prior to release date, is sampled in a new video which we shared last week, here you can also marvel at the exquisite album artwork from the renowned Thomas Hooper...







The journey of their music has found the band relishing the unpredictable, embracing the unknown and exploring the possibility of where the music was capable of taking them. Going beyond the remarkable, Neurosis have become unforgettable. Fires Within Fires is the next powerful step towards a destination that has long been and continues to be the very heart of "becoming" for Neurosis.

NEUROSIS: MORE ALBUM DETAILS EMERGE AND ARTWORK IS REVEALED FOR THEIR ELEVENTH OPUS, FIRES WITHIN FIRES

[Photo Credit: Scott Evans]

Of all that humankind has inherited through our ancestry, no single language has transcended every age as powerfully as music. For thirty years, NEUROSIS have formed an unbreakable union, channelling that inheritance of sound with great command and authority. Showing their discontent with convention from the very beginning, NEUROSIS revealed what would become an instinct for transformation in sound and scope. Their sound has become interchangeable with vision of the conscious and unconscious, coexisting in an infinite audial spectrum. A vision that challenged not only the constraints of what listeners, and indeed the band themselves expected, but of themselves as beings. Going beyond the remarkable, NEUROSIS have become unforgettable.

The journey of their music has found the band relishing the unpredictable, embracing the unknown and exploring the possibility of where the music was capable of taking them. This year finds NEUROSIS taking a dominant leap with their eleventh full-length, Fires Within Fires.Three decades in the making, and following 2012's Honor Found In Decay, the album is a testament both to the history and future of NEUROSIS. In true Ouroborean style, Fires Within Fires gives due to its predecessors while progressing forward into the unfamiliar and formidable. Striking the band's signature balance between light and dark, beauty and repulsion, dense sonic heaviness and reflective space. Fires Within Fires is succinct, raw and deeply soulful, an all-encompassing reminder to all that transfiguration in sound remains their most commanding and inimitable strength.

Created by Scott Kelly, Steve Von Till, Jason Roeder, Noah Landis, and Dave Edwardson. The album features exquisite album artwork from the renowned Thomas Hooper and the stellar recording work of the group's longstanding engineer Steve Albini. We are proud to reveal the artwork and track listing for the album below...




TRACK LIST
1. Bending Light
2. A Shadow Memory
3. Fire is the End Lesson
4. Broken Ground
5. Reach

Fires Within Fires is the next powerful step towards a destination that has long been and continues to be the very heart of "becoming" for Neurosis.

Neurot Recordings will release the album on September 23rd worldwide, more information on pre-orders very soon. In the meantime, here's where you can experience NEUROSIS live in the near future, including some newly added Steve Von Till solo shows...

Neurosis’ SCOTT KELLY Currently Performing With Hamlet At The Oregon Shakespeare Festival

Neurosis’ SCOTT KELLY is currently performing with Hamlet at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The vocalist/guitarist plays the part of one of the Gravediggers, peasants or commoners that use their great wit and intellect to get the better of their superiors, other people of higher social status and each other. In addition to his role as Gravedigger, Kelly remains onstage for much of the performance’s duration playing music that serves as a soundtrack for the entire show and ultimately providing the sonic landscape for Hamlet’s psychological journey.

“This is an adventure for me,” KELLY reveals. “I have never scored a film or a play before and I've always wanted the opportunity to do so. Thanks to my employers of the last sixteen years, I am realizing this dream. Hamlet is an incredible ghost story about the darkest internal process. This production is amazing, the actors are some of the best at their craft in the world, and the director, Lisa Petterson, is nothing short of visionary. My co-collaberator, Paul James Prendergast, is one of my favorite people and it was his idea to bring me into this whole thing. I hope that as many of you who can be here will be here to share in this unique experience."

Hamlet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare sometime between 1599 and 1602. Based in Denmark, the play dramatizes the revenge Prince Hamlet is called to wreak upon his uncle, Claudius, by the ghost of Hamlet's father, King Hamlet. Claudius had murdered his own brother and seized the throne, also marrying his deceased brother's widow. The spectral accusation torments Hamlet’s troubled mind, driving him to avenge a crime that may or may not be a product of his own imagining. Grand in scope, rich in language, this classic story of haunting, both literal and metaphorical, Hamlet is Shakespeare's longest play, and is ranked among the most powerful and influential tragedies in English literature.

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival is a not-for-profit professional theatre founded in 1935. The season runs from February through early November. OSF has three theatres: two indoor stages, the Angus Bowmer Theatre and the Thomas Theatre, and their flagship outdoor Allen Elizabethan Theatre where Hamlet takes place. OSF offers eleven different plays that include three or four by Shakespeare and seven by other classic writers, as well as modern and contemporary work and world premieres. The OSF mission statement: "Inspired by Shakespeare's work and the cultural richness of the United States, we reveal our collective humanity through illuminating interpretations of new and classic plays, deepened by the kaleidoscope of rotating repertory."

Hamlet plays twice a week through October 14th (note: KELLY will not appear in performances from Augutst 8th – 22nd as he will be touring Europe with NEUROSIS).
