11/07/2016 Koko – London, UK w/ Earth [tickets]
On Monday, November 7th, NEUROSIS shall be joined by Earth, and on Tuesday, November 8th, they will be joined by Discharge and Subhumans. These bands represent perfectly the cross-section of music which NEUROSIS as a collective deeply admire and relate to, which makes these two shows all the more important in this milestone year. Tickets are on sale now.
Prior to the UK shows, on September 23rd, NEUROSIS takes a dominant leap with their eleventh full-length, Fires Within Fires. Three decades in the making, and following 2012’s Honor Found In Decay, the album is a testament both to the history and future of Neurosis. In true Ouroborean style, Fires Within Fires gives due to its predecessors while progressing forward into the unfamiliar and formidable. Striking the band’s signature balance between light and dark, beauty and repulsion, dense sonic heaviness and reflective space. Fires Within Fires is succinct, raw and deeply soulful, an all-encompassing reminder that transfiguration in sound remains their most commanding and inimitable strength. Our first and only glimpse of the music on this record, prior to release date, is sampled in a new video which showcases the exquisite album artwork from the renowned Thomas Hooper.
The journey of their music has found the band relishing the unpredictable, embracing the unknown and exploring the possibility of where the music was capable of taking them. This year finds NEUROSIS taking a dominant leap with their eleventh full-length, Fires Within Fires. Three decades in the making, and following 2012’s Honor Found In Decay, the album is a testament both to the history and future of NEUROSIS. In true Ouroborean style, Fires Within Fires gives due to its predecessors while progressing forward into the unfamiliar and formidable. Striking the band’s signature balance between light and dark, beauty and repulsion, dense sonic heaviness and reflective space. Fires Within Fires is succinct, raw and deeply soulful, an all-encompassing reminder to all that transfiguration in sound remains their most commanding and inimitable strength.
Created by Scott Kelly, Steve Von Till, Jason Roeder, Noah Landis, and Dave Edwardson, “Fires Within Fires” features exquisite album artwork from the renowned Thomas Hooper, and the stellar recording work of the group’s longstanding engineer Steve Albini. The artwork and track listing for the album have this week been released.
The new album will be released worldwide on September 23rd via their own Neurot Recordings. The announcement of more specific details of “Fires Within Fires” is imminent, but in the meantime NEUROSIS announces a dozen new live performances across Europe in August, where they will be joined on select dates by Latvia’s fascinating experimental trio, Tesa.
Relapse Records is proud to announce the next chapter in the ongoing series of vinyl reissues for heavy music visionaries NEUROSIS! In coincidence with the band’s 30th anniversary celebrations, NEUROSIS’s seventh and eighth albums A Sun That Never Sets (2001) and The Eye of Every Storm (2004) will each see a super-deluxe reissue pressed on 180 gram double vinyl and housed in heavy duty ‘tip-on’ jackets this coming summer.

A Sun That Never Sets has been out-of-print for over six years on vinyl. The album blends unprecedented beauty and radiance with NEUROSIS‘ classic use of dynamics and power. Highly regarded as one of the most important and influential albums of the 21st century, A Sun That Never Sets is the ultimate juxtaposition of life’s plain realities – a strong will in a world that inspires weakness.

The Eye of Every Storm has been out-of-print on vinyl since its original release in 2004 and saw NEUROSIS further expand their gargantuan sound to new heights with massive textures, gorgeous atmospherics and unprecedented songwriting.
