True Widow 1

Official press release:

True Widow, the Dallas trio that “uses volume as an instrument” (NPR) and “find virtue in pairing grit with sluggishness” (Pitchfork), return with their fourth album, Avvolgere, on Sept. 23 via Relapse Records.

The first single from the album, “Entheogen”, is streaming now and is available as an instant download with digital pre-orders, which can be found here. Physical pre-orders are available via Relapse’s webstore.

The band recorded Avvolgere with Matt Pence, who recorded their 2013 release, Circumambulation, at his Echo Lab Studio in Argyle, Tex. earlier this year. “Over the course of three albums,” the Wall Street Journal said in an article on the DFW-outfit, “the Dallas-based band has refined a sound rooted in focused repetition, bass-heavy guitar drones, ethereal vocals, and almost always, crawling temples.” With Avvolgere, True Widow perfects their craft, featuring serene, rounded climaxes and steep, jangling choruses that engulf the listener with waves of downbeat, saccharine melodies and mesmerizing distortion.

Avvolgere track listing:

1. “Back Shredder”
2. “Theurgist”
3. “F.W.T.S:L.T.M.”
4. “The Trapper & The Trapped”
5. “O.O.T.P.V.”
6. “Entheogen”
7. “To All That He Elong”
8. “Sante”
9. “Grey Erasure”
10. “What Finds Me”
