When I reviewed Planks‘ Southern Lord debut last year I was blown away by the band and left needing more of their tunes. After that, the band kinda fell off of my radar and it wasn’t until today that I stumbled upon a handful of details concerning their new album Funeral Mouth which will be released on Golden Antenna Records digitally on September 29th and physically on October 12th. Planks is currently streaming a new song off of Funeral Mouth called “An Exorcism Of Sorts” and it fucking destroys. You can check that out below.
‘Funeral Mouth’ is yet another concept record. It deals with observations of people deemed unlivable by their inner feelings.From a musical perspective the record resembles a river that flows and morphs while remaining the same entity all the time. Imagine a blend of Junius, Russian Circles, Breach, Darkthrone, Alice In Chains and The Cure.
