The band reunited last year following a decade hiatus.
GENGHIS TRON are back and have announced the details of 'Dream Weapon', their first new album in 13 years. Two of the original line-up have returned, in the form of Hamilton Jordan and Michael Sochynsky, but they are now joined by vocalist Tony Wolski of The Armed and drummer Nick Yacyshyn of Sumac and Baptists.
The record will serve as the follow-up to 2008's 'Board Up The House' and will be released on March 26 via Relapse Records.
Hamilton had this to say about and the record and how it almost picks up where 'Board Up The House' left off:
“That album’s closing track, ‘Relief,’ was about how humans have become a burden to the planet, and how Earth will endure long after we’re gone. There is sadness at the end, but some relief—and beauty—too. Dream Weapon is, loosely, an album-length meditation on that theme.”
And Michael added this:
"I think one difference in our approach for this album was that we had a strong sense from the outset of what kind of vibe we wanted to create. Something more cohesive, meditative and hypnotic.”
The artwork looks like this:
And the tracklisting like this:
01) Exit Perfect Mind
03) Dream Weapon
04) Desert Stairs
05) Alone In The Heart Of The Light
06) Ritual Circle
07) Single Black Point
08) Great Mother
You can hear the first piece of music from the album, which is also the title track, right now. It's ethereal, crunching, despondent and off-kilter. Just the way it should be:
