Jesu Preps New Album for September Release
Published Jul 22, 2013Restless British experimenter Justin K. Broadrick's latest endeavours include releasing music with projects like JK Flesh and Pale Sketcher, but his post-metal outfit Jesu is still alive and well. In fact, Jesu's new album, Every Day I Get Closer to the Light from Which I Came, is out on September 24.
Information about the LP is relatively scarce, but a press release notes, "This album is less reliant on the shorter guitar lead songs, and instead looks further inward to reveal a deeper, sombre, but more dynamic musical experience than 2011's Ascension."
The album was created over a period of more than two years, during which Broadrick was active with other projects. In a prior interview with Shoot Me Again Webzine, Broadrick described Every Day I Get Closer to the Light from Which I Came as being inspired by a "preoccupation with death." The album will be available on CD, vinyl and digital download.
This announcement comes just after news that he will appear on a remix album by La Fin Absolute du Monde.
