Relapse Records has announced the signing experimental, dark ambient/noise trio Locrian.
A press release claims Locrian formed in late 2005 and consists of André Foisy (electric and acoustic Guitars, arp avatar, electronics), Terence Hannum (vocals, synthesizers, piano, organ, mellotron and tapes) and Steven Hess (drums, electronics).
The group, based out of Chicago and Baltimore, has released over 20 recordings on an eclectic array of labels in their relatively short but prolific career, including a recent split with label-mates Horseback.
Locrian will enter the studio later this year for their full-length Relapse debut. In the meantime, Relapse will reissue the group’s most recent vinyl-only release this summer. The Clearing will be available as a 2CD/digital deluxe album with a bonus disc.
“It’s really an honor to be working with one of the labels that we grew up with and a label that’s put out such a wide variety of material that we love,” says André Foisy.
“We plan to record our full-length album for Relapse later this year with Greg Norman at Electrical Audio in Chicago.”
