The intense, genre-defying Wrekmeister Harmonies will release their new album, The Alone Rush, on April 13 via Thrill Jockey. It's the first Wrekmeister Harmonies album recorded as the core duo of bandleader JR Robinson and Esther Shaw, and it features drums by Thor Harris (who, among other things, was in the most recent Swans lineup) and production by Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Swans, etc). It's fitting that they worked with Thor and Bisi, as there's an especially Swans-like vibe to lead single "Covered In Blood From Invisible Wounds." It's a haunting dose of dark folk, led by JR's ominous baritone, and fleshed out by some very gloomy strings. (It should appeal not just to Swans fans, but to Nick Cave fans too.) Listen and check out the tracklist below.

Wrekmeister Harmonies will tour Europe in April and May, and right before that, they have a one-off album release show at Brooklyn's Baby's All Right on April 14. Tickets for the Brooklyn show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
