Watch the legendary duo’s post-modern Western front spring to life.
 Their ninth studio album, Full Upon Her Burning Lips, is due out May 24th on Sargent House.
Continuing to stoke the anticipation revolving around their mighty return to the studio and stage, legendary duo Earth have shared another snapshot of their forthcoming LP Full Upon Her Burning Lips. Coupled with a stark black-and-white visualiser, the five-and-a-half minute dirge “The Colour Of Poison” is packed with Earth’s thematically meditative, sonically immense hallmarks. 
Commemorating a three-decade reign as one of metal’s most monolithic bands, Full Upon Her Burning Lips spares no expense in time or talent. While the duo’s musical vocabulary has expanded as the years have passed, every note still carries the weight of the world. Back with a sound more organic than ever, the tried-and-true magic between guitarist Dylan Carlson and percussionist Adrienne Davies unfurls with each of the record’s ten tracks. 
“In the past I’ve usually had a strong framework for an album,” Carlson says of the album’s gestation process. “This one developed one over the course of the writing and recording. It just felt like ‘Earth’—like just the two players doing their best work at playing, serving the music.” 
The absence of a guiding narrative allowed Carlson and Davies to be more inquisitive, resulting in more terse musical vignettes unbound by context. Bolstered by the engineering, mixing, and mastering by longtime associate Mell Dettmer, Full Upon Her Burning Lips is a leap into undiscovered territory. The purest distillation of Earth yet, and indeed, anyone that’s followed Earth on their journey will bask in the unadulterated hums, throbs, and reverberations conjured by Carlson and Davies.
Full Upon Her Burning Lips will be released on May 24th via Sargent House. Preorders are available here
