OM: Announce New Album, Reveal Record Artwork And Release Date AND New European Tour
It has been three WHOLE years since Om have released a record, the subdued God Is Good record dropped way back in 2009, and there were worries about their even more subdued activities. As in, inactivity. Now, thank goodness, we have a whole slew of news heading our way.
Above you can view a video concerning the new record, it will be titled ‘Advaitic Songs’, the word ‘advaitic’ being quite apparently a difficult word to define and express. In layman’s terms it deals with the identity of Self, which is pretty typical Al Cisneros lyrical subject matter.
The cover follows suit with God Is Good and Pilgrimage’s with the religious iconography which I completely dig, especially with the kind of stained glass window aesthetic. And this time it looks like it’s Jesus himself, which may be an indicator of the quality of music within. I hope.
The video tells us that Advaitic Songs will be hitting shelves for July 24th, and I personally can not wait.
What’s more OM have announced a European tour to frame around their Roadburn Festival appearance, AND I CAN NOT BELIEVE THERE ISN’T A UK DATE. WHAT?
