Ben Frost – Threshold Of Faith

Ben Frost has released a new EP titled Threshold of Faith. It’s available now on streaming services, and 12” vinyl copies are out today via Mute Records.

The seven track EP follows 2014’s A U R O R A and was recorded by Steve Albini last summer. Threshold Of Faith is described as the first release from these recordings which amounted to over two hours of music. Or as a press release put it:

IN THE SUMMER OF 2016 BEN FROST LANDED IN CHICAGO TO WORK WITH STEVE ALBINI. OVER TWO WEEKS – VAST SYSTEMS; UNSTABLE, OVERLOADED, AND ON THE VERGE OF COLLAPSE – WERE FED INTO AN ARRAY OF AMPLIFIERS INSIDE A CAVERNOUS STUDIO. SHAPES WERE FORMED, SPEAKERS WERE TORN. BEHIND THE GLASS ALBINI COMMITTED LIVE PERFORMANCES TO TAPE; SLASHING AT THEM INTERMITTENTLY WITH A RAZORBLADE. MORE THAN 2 HOURS OF MUSIC WAS RECORDED.

THE THRESHOLD OF FAITH EP IS THE FIRST RELEASE OF MUSIC FROM THOSE SESSIONS.
