Description

Boston's Krill announce the release of their new album A Distant Fist Unclenching. Recorded with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth, Speedy Ortiz), the album is their most ambitious body of work and true progression of their sound. Without losing the idiosyncratic nature of earlier recordings, Krill have consciously refined their sound. Despite the clear attention to detail throughout A Distant Fist Unclenching, the album remains lyrically compelling, complex, unusual and full of the fervent intensity of their earlier work - underpinned by Jonahs unpredictable vocal nuances, which range from a fragile whisper to a manic bark. Opener ''Phantom'' frames the album, shedding light on its themes and whilst displaying the band's penchant for unusual song structures. The band take this further with tracks like ''Tiger'' " seven minutes of repetitive, loping thoughts on violence, pain and the ways we come to interpret them. ''Torturer'', a track often introduced live as the devils journal entry on his first day in hell is now available to stream. Closing with the heart-wrenching ''It Ends'', A Distant Fist Unclenching is thematically dense, yet perhaps the bands most accessible and diverse record yet. A Distant Fist Unclenching is released via Steak Club (UK & Europe) & Exploding In Sound/Double Double Whammy (US). Krill begin their first European tour on 23rd February.
