Produced by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and mixed by Johann Scheerer, the EP was recorded at Clouds Hill Studio in Hamburg, Germany in the summer of 2017.

Ahead of the EP’s release, the band offers a cryptic message behind Diamanté:

“How do you weaponize the insatiable thirst for life among vultures? How do you deprogram the coroner dissecting hiatus ? What light beckons you from the sewers of suggestion? Is your instinct extinct ? Or does it hide in the flash burn of counterfeit automatons? 5 boys with guilty slingshots swaying to the Midwitch Sound. Blinded by the DIAMANTÉ.”

The track list for Diamanté is:

SIDE A

Amid Ethics

Despondent at High Noon

SIDE B

Point of Demarkation

Diamanté will only be available at exclusively at your local independent record store on Record Store Day’s Black Friday on Nov. 24. For more information go to recordstoreday.com.
