Insect Ark share new song, announce NYC album release show with Gnaw

Subscribe to Brooklyn Vegan on

Dark Brooklyn band Insect Ark — whose current lineup is band leader (and Swans collaborator) Dana Schechter (who is also in Gnaw) and former SubRosa drummer Andy Patterson — have shared a second single off their upcoming Colin Marston-engineered album The Vanishing (due 2/28 via Profound Lore): the doomy, nearly-eight-minute “Philae.” Dana says, “The song ‘Philae’ traces the epic narrative of a robotic voyager on its journey to a comet near Jupiter. The travel, alongside its host the Rosetta Spacecraft, took over ten years. Philae crashed, was pulled by the comet’s gravity, and for over a year was sitting lost in the shadow of a cliff.” Listen to the new song, above, and check out the album’s first single HERE.

Insect Ark — who spent most of October on the road with Oranssi Pazuzu — also just announced their first show of 2020, a double release show with Gnaw (who are releasing their Barking Orders EP on January 31) at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus on February 26. It will be Insect Ark’s “only New York show until the Fall.” Tickets are now on sale.
