Following the news that Thought Forms and Esben and the Witch are to release a split LP on Invada Records on April 7th, the label have premiered a track by each band from the forthcoming record. It will be available on 12″ vinyl and digital formats, and features 4 new songs from each group. The new Thought Forms offering ‘Sound of Violence’ has a title that does what it says on the tin, and doesn’t disappoint. With its earworm riff, intense drumwork and post-rock panorama it’s a storming combination of many things Thought Forms excel at, and this time vocals are more prominent than ever before.
Here’s what Invada say: “The release recalls the classic era of split singles in the US underground – think of those heady early Sub Pop days, where you’d get Mudhoney and Sonic Youth covering one another on either side of a 7”. In other words: record collector heaven. Both bands will be touring together in the UK, Europe, and the U.S around the time of release to promote this split.
