The Outer Dark, a collaborative 7” from Tucson’s GODHUNTER and Miami’s AMIGO THE DEVIL, will see release on February 10th, 2015.
With an ominous, acoustic, folk/Western musical theme far removed from GODHUNTER’s abrasive hardcore/crust-influenced sludge tones, here the quintet -- guitarists/vocalists Jake Brazelton, David Rodgers, bassist Dick Williamson, drummer Andy Kratzenberg, and keyboardist/cellist Matthew Davis -- is joined by one Danny Kiranos, a.k.a. AMIGO THE DEVIL, who supplies soaring vocals and ethereal Theremin contributions to the two-song 7” The Outer Dark. Delivered at 45RPM on quality black wax for maximum clarity, the A-side’s “Weeping Willow” is a fully original, ill-omened ballad from the collective, while the B-side is a bleak rendition of Nirvana’s “Something In The Way.” The record was recorded in multiple sessions during the Summer of 2014 at Arcane Digital Studios in Chandler, Arizona, and was produced, mixed and mastered by Ryan Butler.
In 2014 both bands were very active tour-wise, as GODHUNTER has endured more live touring than ever including several tours of the Western US, and both GODHUNTER and AMIGO THE DEVIL having performed at the third annual installment of Southwest Terror Fest in October. New live actions from both parties will be announced in the months ahead, with new recorded material from both acts coming together as well, including GODHUNTER’s next recording due out in the Summer of 2015 and much more.
