Official press release:

Vienna-based industrial post-rock collective Phal:Angst will unleash their fourth full-length, Phase IV, next month via Bloodshed666 Records.

The follow-up to the band’s lauded Black Country full-length (2014), Phase IV was recorded and co-produced by Alexandr Vatagin (Valeot Records, Slon, Tupolev, Port Royal, Werner Kitzmüller) and mastered by New York-based acclaimed sound engineer Alex Psaroudakis. Phase IV includes two remixes: “Despair II” remixed by Will Brooks aka MC Dälek of Dälek and “The Books”, a remix of “They Won’t Have To Burn The Books When Noone Reads Them Anyway” by industrial metal pioneer Justin Broadrick of Godflesh, both of whom have inspired the band significantly.

Phase IV will be released on gatefold double LP, digipack CD and as digital download on September 28th through Bloodshed666 Records with pre-orders to be announced in the coming days.
