The new LP has hatched songs like “This is My Rifle” and “The Dream Slayer,” which you can check out below.
Starting next month, John 5 will embark on an array of shows (his first solo tour) in support of the latest effort with his backing band The Creatures (Rodger Carter + Ian Ross on bass) and support act With Our Arms To The Sun (experimental metal from Arizona).

Brooklyn’s own post-black metallers Liturgy have set March 21 as the official street date for their brand new studio album on Thrill Jockey Records dubbed The Ark Work. The new LP, which follows 2011′s sophomore gem Aesthethica, sees lead man Hunter Hunt-Hendrix and guitarist Bernard Gann reuniting with original bassist Tyler Dusenbury and original drummer Bernard Gann for a 10-track odyssey that’s being called “a quantum leap forward” and “a blend of startling invention, high caliber musicianship, raw energy, and profound, cosmic sadness,” by the band’s record label. The new album’s lead-off single “Quetzalcoatl,” which strays away from the band’s conventional “transcendental black metal” approach, was recently made available online and can be streamed below.
