Experimental extremist Locrian have premiered a brand new video for the track ‘A Visitation From The Wrath Of Heaven’ via The Quietus. The track is taken from the album Return To Annihilation, which was released via Relapse Records last year.


The eerie video for the eight and a half minute long track was directed by J.P. Bradburn. Terrence Hannum (keyboards/vocals) commented: “John Bradburn has crafted a nightmare like vision from our song by flipping personas, timelines, settings to muse upon the nature of surveillance and identity.”


Alongside the release of the new video, Locrian have also announced the band’s first European tour dates. These include a stop at Roadburn Festival in the Netherlands (10 April 2014) and DudeFest in Germany (12 April 2014), interspersed by an appearance at AB club in Brussels, Belgium on April 11 2014. Locrian guitarist, André Fossey, remarked of the dates: “We’re really excited to play in Europe for the first time. We’ve been trying to plan a trip to Europe for the last five years, but it hasn’t panned out until now. We’re really grateful to everyone who’s helped us to make this happen.”


Return To Annihilation was recorded with Greg Norman (Pelican, Russian Circles, Serena Maneesh) at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago, IL and mastered by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering Service. Return To Annihilation is a two-part concept album inspired by the band’s love for prog rock progenitors Genesis, Yes and King Crimson.


Return To Annihilation is available to stream in full via Locrian’s Bandcamp page.
