Current 93‘s forthcoming album The Last Of All The Field That Fell was announced last month, but little more than the title itself was revealed.
Now we’ve been treated with a litany of information, and the album is looking like an absolute monster. As usual David Tibet takes his position as bandleader and bona fide grand wizard, and supporting will be Aussie sadsack Nick Cave, Antony Hegarty, John Zorn, James Blackshaw, Andrew Liles, Tony McPhee, Bobbie Watson, Carl Stokes, Jon Seagroatt, Norbert Kox, Reinier van Houdt, Ossian Brown and Jack Barnett.
Not a bad selection of contributors then, and the album is due for release on Tibet’s own Coptic Cat imprint on Saturday February 8. Why a Saturday? Because the band will be performing the album in its entirety at the Union Chapel in London. Also revealed was that the album will be 68, 69, 70 and 71 minutes long – don’t ask us, we really have no idea.
Tickets for the show can be grabbed here.
