Update! We have now gathered about 5 hours of pre-production structures and improv jams, and we’re officially about to get started with the recording of our 2nd Full Length Album.
The short structures of our EP earlier last year have given way to 20 minute tracks that embody who we are, and what we do as a live band especially. What else can we say? It spans from gritty noise to jazz tinged tech, the structures are peculiar and when it gets heavy it’s more aggressive than we’ve ever been.
In other news, there will be vinyl from release day one and we can’t wait to get back out on the road. We’ll keep the updates coming and get some teasers up as we go along.
Lastly, an enormous thank you to the people who buy/share our records. Whether you’re from Australia or countries we haven’t played yet, thanks. It makes a massive difference.
We’re playing the Eleventh He Reaches London album launch this Saturday October 5 - and its going to be fucking awesome.
This is a pretty big occasion. For those of you who don’t know, I (Luke) also play bass in Eleventh. And Ron from TToL recorded, produced, mixed, played synth, played piano and sang back-up vocal harmonies on this album at Studio Sleepwalker’s Dread.
So there are some pretty string links between Tangled and Eleventh!
We’ll be unveiling a new track of our own on Saturday night - the first time its ever been played live. Exciting stuff. We’re just about to start recording all this new stuff for our second album. At this stage, its safe to say that long songs are back…. we’ll have more updates later.
