The Chicago noise shifters Locrian will return this year with their follow up to 2011′s excellent The Clearing. Above is the very minimalistic yet creepy artwork (which reminds me of a scene from The Mist) to Return to Annihilation, Locrian’s upcoming epic that will see a release through Relapse Records on June 25th in North America, June 21st in Germany and Benelux, and June 24th in the UK and the world abroad. Pre-orders for the effort can be found here. No track listing has been made available as of yet. The band has also released an official trailer for the album, which features a short snippet of the album’s title track. It’s sounds trippy and eerie as hell! Check that out below and check back for more Locrian news.
