AIDS Wolf Guitarist Alexander Moskos Releases New 'Fighting' LP as Drainolith

Canadian avant-garde musician Alexander Moskos served as the guitarist in now defunct noise punk outfit AIDS Wolf, but the break-up hasn't deterred him from releasing new material. As reported at the disbanding of AIDS Wolf, Moskos has continued to create music under his Drainolith moniker and now he has announced a new LP titled Fighting!

The record is slated to arrive on May 29 via Spectrum Spools and the new material has been described in a press release as "delusional blues -- littered with fractured synth, feedback and seriously cryptic personal content." The album was mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D+M in Berlin.

Though Moskos has been creating music as Drainolith for years now, prior releases were limited to cassette and CD-R formats, so Fighting! marks the experimental musician's first wide release.

According to the same press release, Moskos has maintained a fondness for chaotic sound, though "there is a defined and cohesive song structure to each track" designed to make "everything more confusing but also highly enjoyable to listen to."

Drainolith's Fighting! is available for pre-order over here and you can check out the tracklisting below.
