CORRECTIONS HOUSE – the collective musical extractions of Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), Sanford Parker (Minsk) and their minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury – is pleased to announce their European takeover this December. The rituals will commence on December 3rd in Hamburg, Germany and sully more than a dozen European metropolises before coming to a close December 21st in Wroclaw, Poland.
Fairbury made the following statement on the adventures: “There is no possible way to capture and enslave what has already been freed from within. The destruction that is given is also forgiven and so begets the path that we all have chosen. CORRECTIONS HOUSE is on this path, the one and same path as those who have walked, crawled and bled before them. Europe, you are on this path. CORRECTIONS HOUSE will see you in December of 2013. And so it begins.
Additionally, CORRECTIONS HOUSE will preach the end-time message atop the main stage of the 013 venue in Tilburg, at Roadburn 2014. On Thursday April 10th they shall be hoaxing the system and smashing out selections from Last City Zero. On Friday, April 11th at Het Patronaat, Kelly, Williams, Parker and Lamont will each perform solo material, aided and abetted by a selection of the others as they see fit. As a precursor to the overseas assaults, CORRECTIONS HOUSE will level the Empty Bottle in Chicago on November 30th with additional stateside presentations to be announced in the coming weeks.
CORRECTIONS HOUSE will be touring in support of their Last City Zero debut released worldwide earlier this week via Neurot Recordings. Produced by Parker at Electrical Audio, Soma Studios, 60 Psycho Hum and Nodferatu’s Lair, Last City Zero offers up eight psychologically alarming hymns that span well beyond the traditional confines of sound. CORRECTIONS HOUSE is a meeting of minds and ideologies that sees all four members incorporating their obvious individual talents and voices while simultaneously carving paths away from the sounds for which they are usually known. On Last City Zero, they traverse tectonic plate-shifting doom and the downcast gloom of Kelly’s usual ouevre into mutated industrial hissing and clanging EBM beats from Parker, squalls and drones of oblique saxophone from Lamont and Williams’ familiar phlegm-drenched fire-spitting ire and all points in-between. Together they embrace the unkind, the diseased, the forgotten, the morose, their lush anti-soundscrapes and shadowy verses – at once beautifully hideous, graceful and terrifying — a manifestation of societal ruin and psychological decay. Cold, mechanical, prosaic and pungent, Last City Zero is boundless in its genre voyage.
