NEUROSIS continues to bring the monolithic tones of their recently-released Fires Within Fires LP to audiences, with a run of four West Coast North American live performances rapidly approaching next week.

Following recent shows in London with Earth, Discharge, and Subhumans, and two shows in Portland with labelmates Yob and Kowloon Walled City, NEUROSIS next week plays to fans in their Bay Area origin, with a show in San Francisco on December 17th, again with support from Yob, Kowloon Walled City. The next day, NEUROSIS headlines the multi-day The Power Of The Riff in Los Angeles, the fest also including sets from Wolves In The Throne Room, Incantation, Nails, Pelican, Kowloon Walled City, and more. December 19th sees the band in Seattle, and December 20th in Vancouver, with support from Yob and Sumac on both shows.

Rolling Stone – who today issued their 20 Best Metal Albums of 2016 list, which features NEUROSISFires Within Fires in the #5 position -- recently highlighted the new West Coast shows in an in-depth feature on the thirtieth anniversary of NEUROSIS and the new Fires Within Fires LP. A segment of the interrogation offers, “Outside of booking tours and scheduling press, the group has existed as a DIY operation for the better part of the last two decades, sort of like metal's equivalent to Fugazi or Black Flag. Everything about NEUROSIS, from their extended drum etudes to the Pink Floyd–like visuals they hauled on the road with them for years, has been about bowing to their own artistic whims. Their 11th and latest release, this year's Fires Within Fires, showcases the best aspects of the Neurosis experience: downtuned Sabbath-influenced riffs, pounding tribal drumming, fleeting moments of elegance and caustic vocals recounting personal apocalypses.” Read the entire feature HERE

NEUROSIS’ first tour of 2017 sees them traversing the Pacific for a run through New Zealand and Australia. Running from February 14th through 18th, 2017 the band will play in Wellington, Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne. Additional tour dates for the upcoming year will be announced in the weeks ahead.

Fires Within Fires is available now on CD, LP, cassette, and all digital platforms through the band’s own Neurot Recordings RIGHT HERE.

Decibel Magazine released an entire issue dedicated to NEUROSIS, including multiple rare Hall Of Fame features as well as a full feature on the new album, a very brief section of the coverage praising, “NEUROSIS have redefined what heavy meant and what heavy could be, all while refusing to define themselves as anything more than conduits for the music they conjure like diviners. Now releasing their eleventh LP, Fires Within Fires, they’ve ascended from the trappings of youth to alter the landscape of heavy music like the violent shift of tectonic plates.” Alternative Press published, “NEUROSIS have been endlessly creative and relevant for every stage of their now three-decade career…. Every part of their discography is essential, and this will be another welcome chapter in their story.” Noisey posted, “They're giants in a field obsessed with hugeness—hugeness of riff, of amplifier, of decibel, of ambition—and are a seemingly unbreakable sonic force… Whatever it is they continue to seek, this latest offering is a massive step forward towards it.” The Wire praised, “Fires Within Fires is the summation of thirty years of experimentation in tonality and texture. Yes, NEUROSIS are firmly positioned within the extreme metal underground yet their music, with its ability to generate images of beauty akin to those many of us have experienced in our own lives - not to mention the loss that accompanies them - challenges this categorization." Terrorizer’s album of the month review included, "Fires Within Fires sees NEUROSIS evoking both the primitive elements of their early years and the polished grace of their current form. A worthy addition to their legacy, their fire burns on."






MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE Featuring Neurosis’ Scott Kelly And Buried At Sea’s Sanford Parker To Kick Off Rare US Mini-Tour Later This Week

MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE
will kick off a rare bout of US live dates this week. Slated to commence on December 2nd in Los Angeles, California and run through December 16th in Oakland, California, the journey will traverse twelve cities in eight states.


MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE is the latest collaboration between Neurosis’ Scott Kelly and Buried At Sea’s Sanford Parker. The band released their self-titled debut – a sonic manifestation of insomnia, complete with the tossing, turning, and perennial dread that comes with facing another shabby daylight – earlier this year via Neurot Recordings. The five songs that comprise Mirrors For Psychic Warfare lurch and pulsate across a sullen, desolate landscape with an almost curious obsessiveness. And while Mirrors For Psychic Warfare may remind some of the best work on the classic Cold Meat Industry label, there is enough familiar Kelly/Parker-isms scattered throughout to keep the album stimulating. It is a work with more in common with a fever or a fitful wraith than a record.

Check out the record, still streaming at Revolver Magazine at THIS LOCATION.




MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE:

12/02/2016 The Handbag Factory - Los Angeles, CA
12/03/2016 The Green Room – Flagstaff, AZ
12/04/2016 Sister – Albuquerque, NM
12/06/2016 Muntiny Info Café – Denver, CO
12/07/2016 Heart Of Gold Tattoo - Salt Lake City, UT
12/08/2016 Wavepop House – Boise, ID
12/09/2016 Shakedown – Bellingham, WA
12/10/2016 Funhouse – Seattle, WA
12/11/2016 Hawthorne Lounge – Portland, OR
12/13/2016 Lucky's – Eugene, OR
12/14/2016 Café Colonial – Sacramento, CA
12/16/2016 Golden Bull – Oakland, CA




Mirrors For Psychic Warfare
was realized and recorded by both Kelly and Parker at Actual 13 Studio and Hypercube respectively over the course of 2015. The record was mixed and mastered by Parker and comes available in CD and vinyl form. This is not the first occasion where Kelly and Parker have joined forces. The two work together in Corrections House, a project that also features the talents of Mike IX Williams of Eyehategod, and Bruce Lamont of Yakuza, and where Corrections House seem hell-bent on impersonal bludgeon and unrestrained panic, the pair’s latest project — MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE — is far more restrained.

“Ambient(-esque?), but tense and brooding...” – Decibel



“MIRRORS… dwells into dark ambient and power electronics, resulting in a death industrial setting, reminiscent of the Cold Meat Industry roster, in the likes of Deutsch Nepal and In Slaughter Natives.” – Cvlt Nation


“Alternating between sedate brood and agonized howl, Kelly spurts a flowing river of distorted guitar, his manly moodiness resting comfortably atop Parker's steady beats and atmospheric programming.” – Austin Chronicle

“If you are a fan of either man involved, then you’ll know that the sheer emotional weight their self-titled debut carries could crush the casual listener and suck the air out of a room… it’s like waking in a cold sweat in the middle of the night from a fevered dream that leaves you restless and unsettled, not quite sure whether that feeling was real or imagined.” – The Sleeping Shaman

Decibel Magazine released an entire issue dedicated to NEUROSIS, including multiple rare Hall Of Fame features as well as a full feature on the new album, a very brief section of the coverage praising, “NEUROSIS have redefined what heavy meant and what heavy could be, all while refusing to define themselves as anything more than conduits for the music they conjure like diviners. Now releasing their eleventh LP, Fires Within Fires, they’ve ascended from the trappings of youth to alter the landscape of heavy music like the violent shift of tectonic plates.” Alternative Press forewarned in their 12 Metal Albums You’re Going To Need In The Second Half Of 2016 feature, “NEUROSIS have been endlessly creative and relevant for every stage of their now three-decade career…. Every part of their discography is essential, and this will be another welcome chapter in their story.” 

Noisey posted, “What more can be said about NEUROSIS that hasn't already been written, re-written, and re-written once again? They're giants in a field obsessed with hugeness—hugeness of riff, of amplifier, of decibel, of ambition—and are a seemingly unbreakable sonic force. When Scott Kelly, Steve Von Till, Jason Roeder, Noah Landis, and Dave Edwardson come together (and especially when they do so under the steady hand of longstanding engineer Steve Albini) the result is the kind of tectonic earth magic that the word doom was invented to personify. Whatever it is they continue to seek, this latest offering is a massive step forward towards it.” The Wire’s full-page review included, “Fires Within Fires is the summation of thirty years of experimentation in tonality and texture. Yes, NEUROSIS are firmly positioned within the extreme metal underground yet their music, with its ability to generate images of beauty akin to those many of us have experienced in our own lives - not to mention the loss that accompanies them - challenges this categorization. This is the band's aim; to confront the listener and through sharing their own experiences and impressions offer a template to explore the profundity and profanity of our past and future lives." Terrorizer’s album of the month review included, "Fires Within Firessees NEUROSIS evoking both the primitive elements of their early years and the polished grace of their current form. A worthy addition to their legacy, their fire burns on."

A massive milestone in the ongoing and unstoppable legacy of NEUROSIS falls into alignment as the band unveils their eleventh studio album, Fires Within Fires, through their own Neurot Recordings this Friday.

Noisey issues alongside the stream, "What more can be said about NEUROSIS that hasn't already been written, re-written, and re-written once again? They're giants in a field obsessed with hugeness-hugeness of riff, of amplifier, of decibel, of ambition-and are a seemingly unbreakable sonic force.

NEUROSIS continues to book additional upcoming live performances around the release of Fires Within Fires, adding several new shows to their tour schedule. Following the previously-announced London shows with Earth November 7th and Discharge and Subhumans November 8th, and two shows in Portland with labelmates Yob and Kowloon Walled City November 25th and 26th, the newest additions come in the form of two California shows in December, leading with a set in San Francisco on December 17th, also with support from Yob and Kowloon Walled City.

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 NEUROSIS'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. Our first and only glimpse of the music on this record, prior to release date, is sampled in a new video which has emerged, 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 has 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.
