Ben Frost

Ionia (Jlin Rework)

LISTEN TO JLIN’S REWORK OF ‘IONIA’

‘THE CENTRE CANNOT HOLD’ – NEW ALBUM OUT 29 SEPTEMBER

LIVE DATES INCLUDE THE ICA, LONDON – 11 OCTOBER

 

“… colossalNPR / “…compelling” Echoes & Dust / “…gargantuan” Pitchfork
 
 “…engrossing… from first hammer blow to last squeak” – The 405
 
“…shows off a more compositionally direct Frost, focusing on heaviosity and purer sound by getting in Steve Albini to capture live sessions direct to tape” – The Wire

 

BEN FROST has announced details of a performance at London’s Institute of Contemporary Art on 11 October ahead of the release of his fifth studio album, The Centre Cannot Hold, out on Mute on 29 September 2017.

 

Available now on vinyl and download, you can listen to Jlin’s reworking of Ben Frost’s ‘Ionia’ here: http://po.st/BFIoniaYT

 

Due to circumstances beyond Ben Frost’s control, the date at Electric Brixton on 5 October can no longer go ahead. Instead, Ben Frost will play an album launch event on Wednesday 11 Oct at London’s Institute of Contemporary Art.

 

In addition, Ben Frost will return to London in the new year, and play a special date for a unique audio-visual performance featuring Marcel Weber (MFO) at Heaven on 16 March, part of the Convergence festival series. [Ticket buyers have been contacted with details on how to exchange tickets for either of the new dates or receive a refund]

 

 

The Centre Cannot Hold was recorded over ten days by Steve Albini in Chicago. The music exists not in space, but in a space; it is a document of an event, of a room, and of the composer within it. It is music that is not fully controlled and appears to be anxiously, often violently competing against its creator.

 

In collaborating with Albini, Frost chooses a new immediacy and raw directness. As an artist whose command of sound design lies at the heart of his practice, by placing himself primarily in the role of live performer and handing the studio recording process over to Albini, Frost continues pursuit of Theseus’ paradox; the question of whether a ship restored by replacing every single part remains the same ship.

 

Watch the video for Threshold Of Faith, the opening cut from the new album, a new collaboration shot in the winter of 2016 in Reykjavík, Iceland with conceptual documentary photographer Richard Mosse and Cinematographer Trevor Tweeten: http://po.st/BFThresholdVideo

 

Ben Frost is currently on tour with MFO (Marcel Weber) for a series of dates that include London’s ICA and Heaven, Club To Club, ADE and Le Guess Who? festivals.

FURTHER PRAISE FOR THRESHOLD OF FAITH
“… sonic shades cloak and flicker with resonant depth, ingesting recent orchestral pursuits for something colossal” – NPR
 
“moving from heroic vistas into a garbled, snow-blinded melee. Distant choral pads, a glistening upper-register sheen, submerged piano, and groaning harmonies all stack up into a geologic crescendo that extends into infinity.” – Pitchfork

 

The Centre Cannot Hold is out on 29 September: http://po.st/BFTCCH
‘Threshold Of Faith’ is available now on 7-track vinyl and digital EP: http://po.st/BFThreshold
