Massive slab of SOUTHERN LORD news!

Created by Klaus Kleinowski |

SOUTHERN LORD Recordings is proud to announce the following news:


It is with the most extreme honor possible that Southern Lord proudly announces a new partnership with: EARTH!! EARTH has long been one of the primary influences of many Southern Lord  artists, including the inspiration of the formation, sound, theory, and execution of sunn0))). Over the last 10+ EARTH has had a mysterious and abstruse career. Despite a multitude of entanglements EARTH released  4 classic album on Sub Pop records in the early to mid nineties. They have left their own unique stamp on modern music and are without question the fore-fathers of drone music.


EARTH 2004 (and beyond) consits of group founder: Dylan Carlson on guitar and Adrienne Davies (percussion).  The duo is stronger and more determined then ever before, with many shows already performed in the USA, and Europe along side supporters such as: SUNN 0)), KHANATE, WHITEHOUSE, KK Null etc.. A collection of early recordings ("sunn amps and smashed guitars") and extremely limited vinyl releases have surfaced over the last 4 years. Not until now will a entire album of new, unreleased, unheard material be forthcoming from EARTH.


EARTH will enter the studio in January 2005 to record their debut album (the first new studio album in 9 years!) for Southern Lord.  Dylan and Adrienne are very enthusiastic that after a long hiatus, brand new material will finally become available.To say we are ecstatic would be a severely gross understatement! Signing EARTH, and being able to unleash their material is among the most exciting events to ever happen to SOUTHERN LORD!!!!

Please stay tuned to our site and theirs for what promises to be much more killer news!
