Seattle doomgaze outfit He Whose Ox is Gored have announced the release of their debut full-length record and follow-up to their 2014 7″, Rumors. The album will be titled The Camel, The Lion, The Child and will be released on October 9 via Bleeding Light Records. The record was tracked at Red Room and Ex Ex Audio in Seattle by Robert Cheek (Serial Hawk, Noise-A-Tron etc.) with additional recording taking place at Avast Studios with Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, etc). Matt Bayles (Isis, Mastodon etc.) handled mixing duties and frequent collaborator, Blake Bickel, mastered the album at Dynamic Sound Service. Guitarist and vocalist Brian McClelland comments on the upcoming effort:
“The Camel, The Lion, The Child is a cup that runs over. From the writing process and through the studio, we made it a point to make the record that we wanted. The songs grow and breathe with their own lives and personalities, and unfold with layers that surprise us to this day. The excellent engineering and mixing of Robert Cheek and Matt Bayles raised the bar, and pushed us to make the best record we could. Now, we share it with you.”
The album’s artwork and track listing can be seen after the break along with the group’s upcoming tour dates with Mutoid Man.
