2012 wrap-up

2012 wrap-up

So here we are 31 Dec 2012 - time to do a wrap-up of the year behind us!  We've been working away on new music but we didn't want to rush our next full-length album.  We wanted to let This World Erase sink in before charging out with something new.  We're still happy with the work we've done on that album but we don't want to do a full-length album every year.  Instead, we put a huge amount of work into the Shadow Between Worlds release, which will come out on 25 January 2013.  This really felt like a full album's worth of effort, with 5 new, original, A-side tracks.  And I can tell you right now, the artwork, is better than any normal "EP" artwork and definitely looks like an album.  I love how succinct this release is, and I love every track on it.  I feel as though I could hand this disc to anyone and go "Here is what Shiv-r sounds and looks like", with no further explanation whatsoever.  I can't wait for you guys to hear it in its entirety.

Press info:

Hard-hitting yet elegant, SHIV-R is the monstrously seductive project of Australian-born musicians Pete Crane and Ben Lee Bulig. The band forge a unique aural and visual aesthetic, creating a world of fear, aggression and self-expression to confront the shadows within ourselves. Through five brand-new tracks, including collaborations with fellow harsh provocateurs SURGYN and industrial brothers-in-arms AR12, the band continue to explore the space between the explosively energetic and the emotively captivating. The EP also includes a fistful of high-powered remixes by NOISUF-X, SAM, SKYLA VERTEX, DISTORTED MEMORY and - incredible but true - SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK. Following on from "This World Erase"'s themes of rejecting and destroying the world with which we are presented, the new EP explores an existence without the gilded trappings of an apathetic society. A void of creation; a "Shadow Between Worlds".
