New Wintersleep Album

Recommended Posts

Wintersleep has a new album coming out in early October, titled "Welcome to the Night Sky".

 

They've revamped their website, but there's not too much there yet, aside from a nearly hidden blog, and a preview track, Weighty Ghost, which has been fairly drastically reworked from its previous live incarnations (which I personally prefer).

 

As well, bassist Jud Haynes has left the band amicably to pursue other things, replaced by Michael Bigalow. Jud will continue to work with the band from behind the scenes.

I meant to ask you if you'd read about all this, Meg.

 

Anyways, so pumped for this.

The song on their website is pretty lame though...

Check out the link that D provided, Meg. I agree that their live version of this song is significantly better than this recorded one. I hope they don't rework any of their other songs with this approach.

Loel emailed me the other day, and said the way they played Weighty Ghost live just didn't sound good in a recording, and this version fits in better with the rest of the new album. So we shall see how it sounds. I don't like the version of the song as much, but I'm still very hopeful for the album.

 

He also joked that maybe an older version of the song could make it on their b-sides in 2015.

I have no idea what to expect but I have big hopes for this album.

So do I.

 

I've read the new album is going to be as different from the last album as that album was from the first. So hopefully it's still the Wintersleep I love.

 

They've added some album artwork to the site, which confirms that some (if not all) of the previously heard live songs will appear on the album.

 

Also, this video (if you haven't already seen it), contains previews of a lot of tracks from the album. I really like the last one they use. Some of it sounds a bit more like Paul Murphy's old band Kary.

I have some of the live songs, none of them really caught my ear.

"How Are You Gonna Lie?", "Archaeologist", and "Weighty Ghost" were standouts to me, however the latter is very different in its album form.

Wow, I just listened to the new album front to back twice. I can tell, without a doubt, this is the finest album I've ever heard. By any band.

 

Its like it was made solely for my musical tastes. I don't remember ever hearing an album that I liked this much right away. Its absolutely flawless, with every song being mindblowingly amazing.

 

That said, the songs that really made this album what it is, are:

 

Search Party

Drunk on Aluminum

Dead Letter and the Infinite Yes

I don't have favorites from the album yet but I can agree on it being pretty damn fantastic. I love this band and this place for introducing me to them!

Ha, you guys suck, hearing it already! ;)

 

I was just about to post a link to the teaser on their site. Well whatever, glad to hear it's awesome, but I'll wait till the release to get it.
