Following the release of their debut full-length, Last City Zero, 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 — will be leveling the UK on April 12th for a single London show following their appearance at this year’s Roadburn Festival.
Tickets for the show, which will be taking place at Dalston’s Birthdays, are available HERE.
CORRECTIONS HOUSE the band will return to The Netherlands this Spring to preach their end-time message atop the main stage of the 013 venue in Tilburg April 10th at Roadburn. On Friday, April 11th at Het Patronaat, Kelly, Williams, Parker and Lamont will each perform solo material, aided and abetted by a selection of others as they see fit. CORRECTIONS HOUSE is a meeting of minds and ideologies that sees all four members incorporating their obvious individual talents and voices but 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. Check out the planet-rupturing sound of steel falling from the sky with “Bullets and Graves,” the mournful tide of “Run Through The Night,” currently streaming at Vice/Noisey (Germany) as well as opening track, “Serve or Survive,” currently playing at Pitchfork.
“Whether it’s Mike IX Williams’ grim spoken word poetry or Scott’s coarse, monotone groan overlaying the clangorous soundscapes, it’s the utter bleakness that binds.” – Metal Hammer
“It sounds very little like anything else the four men have ever been involved with. It sounds, in fact, very little like anything else, period – an overall pitch-dark neofolk atmosphere permeates the entire record but in a very decadent, urban sort of way…A record that oozes danger and menace – and genius – out of reach of its many shady corners.” – Rock A Rolla
“CORRECTIONS HOUSE have created something wholly original, incredibly touching, and most likely alienating. Bravo gentlemen, bravo. 10/10″ – Crave
“Featuring dark, depressing atmospheres and exceptionally negative, apocalyptic vibes, Last City Zero is brooding, raw and corrosive, as well as breathtakingly beautiful. 9/10” – Exclaim!
“On Last City Zero, CORRECTIONS HOUSE survey the world with a bleak outlook, as much with scorn as sadness. The industrial/mechanical side feels indicative of how the soul is being ripped from the chest of society, whereas the cleaner side represents the need to hold on to our own individuality. The angry screams voice the fight to maintain what is ours and to retake what has been taken, and the spoken voices of reason and honesty instill reflectiveness and a lack of ignorance…4/5″ – About.com
“Like their main bands, there is no relegating this music to the background. It is so insidious, stark and sure of itself that it righteously demands your full attention. CORRECTIONS HOUSE has much more depth than labels such as ‘Doom’ or ‘Experimental’ could ever justify… Not only are these men masters of their own individual sounds, they have managed to create something together that is bigger than themselves. And that is a ‘supergroup’ that gets it right. 10/10″ – Ghost Cult
“A concise, sharp and very focused collection of eclectic songs. It’s as if this surreally talented collection of people didn’t know (or didn’t want to know) where exactly they were heading, but knew very well how to get there anyway…Face Last City Zero as an experience as you would a trip into the darkest corners of both your mind and your city, with senses alert and aware of the imminent danger. How long has it been since a record made you feel like that?” – Terrorizer Album Of The Month
“This is a record of revolt, of standing up and fighting back, a fist to the face, a flag to truly get behind! A calling to this international nation of the oppressed. This is musically superior, a slow determined march of beats that infiltrates your being and pumps your heart just that little bit faster!” – Destructive Music
“This album is a detailed masterpiece representing the abstract concepts of hatred, malevolence and despair… Harrowing but utterly brilliant.” – Soundshock
“Ferocious, powerful, heavy music at its most searingly vindictive.” – Stereoboard
