Published Jun 10, 2021Wolves in the Throne Room have returned with details of a new album. The Washington trio will deliver Primordial Arcana on August 20 through Relapse Records, marking their first release for the label.

"'Mountain Magick' was shot in the northern reaches of the Olympic Mountains and the ancient forests that shroud the foothills," Wolves in the Throne Room aIS in a statement. "We wrote the story, created the costumes, shot the footage and did the editing ourselves, so it is a true product of our hearts and souls. Creating our own videos has been a long standing dream and now It's very exciting to bring these Visions into the Cinematic Realm."
