Throne announce details of the release of their debut EP 'Where Tharsis Sleeps'. It will be released on Monday 16th June on Indian Face Recordings, a brand new Brighton-based record label.
The EP will be available on limited 12" and download. All tracks were recorded in 2013 at Skyhammer Studios and produced by Chris Fielding (Conan, Electric Wizard).
Track listing below:
1. Tharsis Sleeps
2. Molten Tomb
4. Surface of Stone
5. Two Worlds
'Where Tharsis Sleeps', the follow up to Throne's debut single 'Heavy Lies The Crown', is a heavy mix of stoner doom-rock and colossal riffs, giving a nod to Black Sabbath and Pentagram.
The London based trio who formed in 2011 describe writing the EP "like a concept record, in a classic prog / heavy metal style, where every song is based around a narrative and the record tells a story, the story details an introspective journey through space to terraform new worlds."
Throne have supported Radkey, Conan and Wet Nuns, as well as playing at various festivals including SXSW, Radfest and The Great Escape to name a few. The band is now set for their debut headline gig on June 5th at The Cob Gallery in Camden.
Throne are: Nicos Livesey (vocals and guitar), Will Michael (bass) and Julia Owen (drums).
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
