Chinese experimental post-rock outfit Wang Wen have announced the release of their ninth studio album. The new record will bear the title Sweet Home, Go! and will be released through Pelagic Records on September 30 (Europe), followed by a U.S. date on October 28. The record was reportedly written over the past three years and was completed in early January with producers Wouter and Lode Vlaminck.
A statement from the band reads:
“Over the last few years, it feels like time has been spinning out of control. As time speeds by, it makes people feel an indescribable excitement but also a feeling of suffocation. Just as we become used to the ways of today, things change in a flash. The Internet has seemingly brought people closer together, but in fact, is has plunged us into the many deep cracks of space and time.”
The album’s artwork and track listing can be found below, along with a special mini-documentary about the creation of the record.
