DARSOMBRA: Transmission LP From Baltimore Prog/Psychedelic Duo Out Now; Extensive North American Tour Underway

Transmission – the spacious and psychedelic fifth LP by Baltimore-based progresive/experimental duo DARSOMBRA – is now available on all formats, independently released by the band. The album lands as the band continues venturing across the continent on their sprawling two-month-long North American tour.

Transmission consists of one continuous track delivering more than forty-one minutes of DARSOMBRA‘s sprawling, mind-expanding, musical exploration. Ranging from relentless, charged, and cinematic, to ephemeral, transcendent, and delicate, the song embraces its many qualities as it wraps itself into a thematic, uncompromising saga with a million different interpretations available to the listener. It is a unique experience as a piece of recorded sound, and an unforgettable spectacle to see live. Each format of the album bears slightly different artwork and design elements than the others.

Transmission is out now on LP, CD, cassette, and digital download directly through DARSOMBRA. Find a wide array of options at the band’s webshop HERE and Bandcamp HERE.

Transmission sees release a bit more than a week into DARSOMBRA‘s two-month-long tour across the United States and Canada in support of the record. Having launched on July 31st, the tour will continue across the continent through October 5th, ending in their hometown.

Since forming in 2006, DARSOMBRA has released an extensive catalog of albums and smaller releases through a vast network of underground labels including At A Loss, Public Guilt, Exile On Mainstream, Translation Loss, and Noise Bombing, Transmission is being funded and released independently by the band. Uniting Brian Daniloski on guitar, vocals, and effects, and Ann Everton on synthesizer, vocals, gong, and visuals, DARSOMBRA is a transcendental and emotive experience. Live, they create a symbiotic audio-video involvement that creates a temporary reality, woven by sight, sound, and movement. These psychedelic and transcendental characteristics are transferred to record as closely as possible.
