shelsmusic’s latest signing Erlen Meyer have a new video
Hopefully you will remember when we introduced you guys to Limoges sludge quintet Erlen Meyer not long ago when they were signed to one of our favourite shelsmusic (check out the big feature we did on them too!). Mightily impressed with their debut track “Nuit” were we, so it was great to see the train rumble on with a video for the track “Agatha” premiering yesterday over at Metal Injection.
“Agatha” is the third track of their forthcoming self-titled debut, and follows on directly from “Nuit“. It’s even longer, at over eight minutes – so far, so sludge – and has a pretty interesting story behind it, to do with a writer and their lack of inspiration – specifically, it’s a roundabout tribute to British crime writer Agatha Christie:
Also interesting is their take on the video:
Described as “a cross between a dark thriller and a horror film”, the album drops on May 20th through shelsmusic. It’s going to sound pretty massive, and promises to be pretty bleak. That said, things are bright for the band, with a UK tour with labelmates Latitudes and Manatees reportedly in the works, about which I am very excited. Make sure to keep up to date with them on Facebook!
