Gonjasufi Returns with 'Callus'

Gonjasufi Returns with 'Callus'
It's been years since we heard from Warp weirdo Gonjasufi, but that's about to change. Announcing his first new full-length since 2012's MU.ZZ.LE, Gonjasufi will return with a new album this summer.

The new record is called Callus and is due out on August 19 via Warp.

According to a press release, "Callus is undeniably the musician's most soul-baring and cathartic collection. It is about embracing hurt and anger to create something..."

Or as Gonjasufi explained in a statement, "That's the callus. How can you not be in pain? It ain't about getting past that shit. It's about growing into it. I peeled through all these layers to get to the core. I channelled all the misunderstanding and misery and torment — that's what it is, torment — into this."

The album was written and produced by Gonjasufi, but fittingly enough, the record features former Cure guitarist Pearl Thompson on several tracks.
