Liturgy teasing new album, debuting new material at NYC show
Black-metal-turned-electronic-rock act Liturgy have been teasing a followup album to 2015’s The Ark Work for a while, and they’ve now announced that they’ll debut new music at a hometown show on September 6 at Market Hotel with Deli Girls, Child Abuse, Sadaf and TBHQ. Tickets are on sale now.
That’s the only upcoming Liturgy show at the moment, but frontman Hunter Hunt-Hendrix is also making the West Coast debut of his “multi-disciplinary opera” Origin of the Alimonies on November 16 at REDCAT. Here’s the synopsis:
The opera, which collides metal, classical, and trap music, is a meditation on the origin of all things. It follows OIOION and SHEYMN, a pair of divine beings whose thwarted love tears a wound from which civilization is generated, producing the Four Alimonies of the intelligible universe and the task of collective emancipation. This performance is the prologue to a multi-part opera cycle titled OIOION featuring video, choreographed movement and a twenty-piece amplified chamber orchestra comprising Liturgy and the Sonic Boom ensemble. It follows a music-only read through at National Sawdust in late 2018. A full scale presentation of the piece is in development.
Tickets for Origin of the Alimonies are on sale now.
