New York City-based multi-instrumentalist TIMO ELLIS – vocalist/frontman for Netherlands and widely known for his work with the likes of Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon, Spacehog, John Zorn, The Melvins, Ween, and many others – presents an explosive new solo EP, Death Is Everywhere. Now confirmed for independent release at the end of February, a brief teaser and other details on the EP have been issued.
Death Is Everywhere sees TIMO ELLIS handling all songwriting and instrumentation including drums, basses, guitars, vocals, and keyboards. Over four dense and intense tracks, elements of a wide array of genres, styles, and instrumentation are seamlessly mutated into a white-knuckled ride that stampedes straight through the confines of any sort of genre boundaries. Buoyant, rampant, and incessantly imaginative, the tracks bob and weave across a range of tempos and textures and keep the listener curiously hooked. Highly recommended for fans of the Melvins, Curtis Mayfield, Queens Of The Stone Age, Nomeansno, and The Beach Boys.
In the creator’s own words, “Basically I would frame this EP as being, a clobbering, guttural, yet also introspective, meticulously constructed sludge-pop movie.”

Recorded by ELLIS at Shame Party Studios, Death Is Everywhere was mixed by Tom Tierney at Spaceman Sound, mastered by Ron A. Shaffer at Atlantic West Studios, and completed with album design by Todd Kancar.
The Death Is Everywhere EP will see independent digital release on Friday, February 26th. Watch for preorders, new audio samples, and more to post over the days ahead.
