Published May 23, 2013Since By Divine Right released their album Mutant Message in 2009, band leader José Miguel Contreras has teamed up with his wife Lily Frost and got involved with a local indie film, but now he's back with his main project for a new album. Organized Accidents is out on June 4 through Hand Drawn Dracula and is available to stream in full right now. Plus, it will be supported by a Canadian summer tour.
Contreras and his bandmates wrote and recorded the album in a forest near Toronto. A press release intriguingly describes it like this: "Organized Accidents is the culmination of José's songwriting and production pursuits. A self-indulgent and decadent extravagance of sound, it is nonetheless a romantic study in minimalism."
The announcement continues, "Everyone involved slept in their clothes at some point. Or in no clothes. Everyone fell asleep standing up. Everyone did something they didn't think they could do. The experiment was a success."
