Where Wildness Grows is the title of the second album from Gengahr, and will be released on 9 March next year. Hopefully, you've already heard Carrion and Mallory - they have both been added to our New Releases playlist and there is a video for Mallory out today too.
The album is available to pre-order on LP, CD and cassette - with the first 300 orders coming with a pack of seeds - plenty of time to grow them between now and the release date. The LP and CD bundles also have an art print signed and hand numbered by the band, all the options are here.
It's been a couple of years since their first album A Dream Outside came out, and this one was recorded in London this summer, and produced by Neil Comber - who's also worked on the recent Songhoy Blues album Résistance.
"The journey has been far from straight-forward up until now and in many ways we are an altogether different band than the one that wrote 'A Dream Outside'. Over the past two years we have given everything in order to create an album that would meet all our ambitions, fulfilling our vision of what Gengahr is now. It's been gruelling at times, but like a caterpillar entering metamorphosis you know the moment of darkness will be outshone by the transformation. There were certainly times along the way when frustrations grew and it seemed as if our vision for the album would shatter entirely. We
spent almost 3 months recording a version of the album that would eventually end up making us feel a little uncomfortable in our own skin. Having to reset, take stock and go at it again wasn't easy, but we were confident in the songs we had. That is always the most important thing as an artist, above anything else. We are incredibly proud of the record we have made and beyond excited to release it into the world for others to enjoy."
