Presenting ΣRRANT MONKS: THE LIMIT-EXPERIENCE LP, the bones of which were assembled in the aftermath of a tumultuous Eastern European tour in 2016. 2 years in the making, 2 years of manic studio itching, 2 years of reflection and recovery.
The impetus behind the album, with its intermittent spells of dream sequences, is the ordeal I found myself enduring on that tour. Battling with psychosis and alcoholism - no doubt exacerbated by spending 4 months under house arrest in Manchester in the run up to the tour - I ascended into a state of intense mania which culminated in my experiencing Delirium Tremens and seizures from alcohol withdrawal in Budapest. These experiences were captured on a recording device the moment that I regained consciousness.
This was The Limit-experience, the subject broken away from itself at the edge of all possibility. With nowhere left to turn a profound shift in focus emerged. Shedding self-destructive nihilism for the growth of a new understanding of balance and a will to begin my recovery.
***PLEASE NOTE*** We are releasing the digital files now but are still waiting on the records to arrive from the pressing plant. We will contact everyone who has pre-ordered once the records are received and we begin sending out. Sorry for the delay/confusion. ***

This is one of those records that really justifies all of the nights I've spent browsing Bandcamp for fresh music. Creative, nostalgic for fans of Westerns, and refreshing in its presentation, it's a real passion motivator! trashmikeee
