The release of DEL REY’s mesmerizing new full-length Immemorial is upon us, being released on North American shores via At A Loss Recordings today! The seven track opus takes any preconceived notions of bland, overdone post-rock boredom one might have and crushes them completely. The suave but punishing dual drummer attack, intensely layered atmospheric qualities and overall entrancing empowerment of Immemorial is truly intense and memorable from start to finish.
The entire Immemorial album has been posted for streaming on the At A Loss Recordings website: http://www.atalossrecordings.com/Immemorial.htm
DEL REY will perform at a massive hometown record release show at Chicago’s Lincoln Hall on October 8th in celebration of Immemorial‘s release. More live actions for the band will be announced sporadically throughout the year and into 2011, but if you’re in the Chicago area, do yourself a favor and be there for the unveiling of the new album with the band and their hometown friends and fans.
DEL REY Record Release Show:
10/8/2010 Lincoln Hall – Chicago, IL

“When there’s no vocalist, folks tend to spend more time picking apart each instrument, its associated player. Longstanding Chi-Town quintet Del Rey solve that “problem” with their signature two-drummer/double-kit builds and crashes and a denser, more atmospherically layered sound.” – Stereogum
“Prog heads will grasp onto the experimental elements, psychedelonauts will want to be dragged along the jamming peyote desert floor ‘These Children that Come at You with Knives’ seems to be built on, and assholes will call it overrated hipster rock. Somewhere between all that, you’re likely to find yourself a rich LP worthy of multiple engagements.” – The Obelisk
“…Del Ray blends a heavy and sonic brew of heavy psychedelic, Afro-Cuban and tribal rhythms, improvisational jams, and just about everything truly awesome into their vivid neo-psychedelic instrumental trips through audio bliss!” – Hellride Music
