CARETAKER Release New Album ‘Providence’ on March 12th 2012 on We Be Records.
Release New Album ‘Providence’ on March 12th 2012 on We Be Records.
We Be Records are proud to announce the release of ‘Providence’, the debut full-length album from UK band Caretaker.
After a lengthy absence, Hampshire’s Caretaker return with their most expansive and ambitious offering to date. Boasting a heavier, more progressive sound than on previous excursions, ‘Providence’ captures the intensity of the band’s visceral live performances whilst also offering brooding, fragile guitar pieces which provide brief respite amongst the chaos.
Drawing on the raw aggression of acts such as Converge and Neurosis, whilst still accommodating the slow-burning intent of previous post-rock influences like Slint and Mogwai, Caretaker have produced a record that truly represents the full scope of their sound.
Lead track Hellion has been receiving support from Dan P. Carter on BBC Radio 1 Rock Show and Ian Camfield on XFM’s Rock Show. Caretaker will be recording a session for XFM in April.
The album will be released on CD (KONG003) and digital (KONG003D) on March 5th2012. The tracklisting for Providence is as follows:
- Thousand Yard Stare
- What We Have We Hold
- The Outpost
- The Upper Air
The album was recorded and mixed in London at The Sound Bunker by Wayne Pennell and Caretaker, mastered by Ed Brooks at RFI Mastering, Seattle with striking artwork design courtesy of Jamie Lenman.
Caretaker will be playing a London launch show for Providence with a UK tour to follow. Dates below.
