Jesu Details 'Every Day I Get Closer to the Light from Which I Came'
A press release explains that the record, which follows 2011's Ascension, contains five new tracks that apparently flirt with the shoegazing hooks of past material, while venturing into the realms of post-punk, dub and electronica. You can sample a smidgen of the set's overdriven doom pop in the trailer down below.
The LP's 17-minute centrepiece "The Great Leveller" is the only track to feature anyone other than Broadrick, with Nicola Manzan acting as "a one man orchestra of strings." Lyrically, the song is said to deal with "the existential drain that is early parenthood," a theme apparently near and dear to Broadrick after becoming first-time parent shortly before starting work on the LP.
You can see the album's album art up above and the tracklisting down below.
