CT-NYC post-punk band Reduction Plan has announced their follow-up to 2017’s excellent Somewhere and have also shared a new single. The new album is called (Ae) Maeth, which will be out (on vinyl!) September 20th via Wallingford’s Redscroll Records. The new single is called “The River”, which also totally rips. You can pre-order the album at Reduction Plan’s Bandcamp page here.
Via Reduction Plan’s Bandcamp:
If ‘Somewhere’ was a record born in the cold and the dark, Reduction Plan’s latest ‘(Ae) Maeth’ was molded in chaos and fire. The title draws inspiration from the folktale of the Golem, a creature molded from clay and animated to life through the inscription of “æmaeth”, or “truth,” on its head, only to have that same life snuffed out by erasing the first two letters to form the word “maeth”, or “death.” ‘(Ae) Maeth’ is a search for truth in death, a hunt for meaning in the face of vast oblivion. It is a record driven by loss, anxiety, fear, chaos, and a search for purpose.
