Aluk Todolo announce details of 'Archives Vol. 1' via Temple of Torturous!
Instrumental power trio, ALUK TODOLO, have confirmed details of their upcoming archival release, appropriately titled "Archive Vol 1". The eight-track record will be released via Temple of Torturous on 20 March, 2017, and is comprised of rarities, B-sides, and unheard tracks that chart the first ten years of their existence.
Over those ten years, including four full length albums, a collaboration and two EPs, ALUK TODOLO have trodden a new path of sonic pursuits. Hailing from France, the exploratory trio get experimental with Krautrock drenched in black metal intensity. Whilst having never been able to be easily pigeonholed, ALUK TODOLO's sound has morphed and reshaped over the years.
Of the new release, the band commented: "We selected those tracks, because they were still in our consciousness after all these years. We approached the release as a whole, assembled the tracks focussing on dynamic, like we did for our latest studio album Voix (instead of making it chronological). For us it's a way to revisit our 10 first years, and use recordings we made on our own, be it rehearsal tracks, or work-in-progress steps, rare tracks releases or just experimentations. It's a collection, and here is Vol.1, we have no clear plan about the Vol.2, but time will tell.."
ALUK TODOLO will play dates in the US throughout February with Insect Ark before returning to Europe to tour with Oranssi Pazuzu, including a stop at Roadburn Festival where they will perform Voix in full.
Archives Vol. 1 will be released on limited vinyl edition & digital for the Spring equinox of March 20 via Temple of Torturous in Europe and The Ajna Offensive for US.
