Gnod worshipping is a practice that consists solely of listening to Gnod. It requires no divinity or belief, just listening to Gnod and we highly recommend it. Nowadays more than ever, “with societal strife, psychic warfare and sheer boredom assaulting us from all fronts in this still-fresh decade, co-ordinates have been hard to place forging a path forward. Therefore, who better to turn to as a soundtrack for this tumultuous new era than Gnod – longtime chroniclers of discord,” so says the press note, whilst announcing the impending release of Gnod’s new album, «La Mort Du Sens», which is French for “death of meaning.” As the band’s Paddy Shine explains “the title sums it up well because this album was coming together at a time when confusion was king for us all – still is. I think we can all relate to that. This record is a really strange beast because of the big change that happened between mixing and recording.” Sound-wise, we can expect a band “wielding the taut, stripped-down and bludgeoning sound that had evolved on 2017’s «Just say no to the psycho right-wing capitalist fascist industrial death machine» and 2018’s «Chapel Perilous».” Speaking of bludgeoning, below you can listen to the album’s first single, «Pink Champagne Blues».
«La Mort Du Sens» is set for release on November 5 through Rocket Recordings on cd, digital, and vinyl formats. Pre-orders can be found here.
