Chicago avant-metal outfit Scientist (Yakuza, ex-Taken By the Sun) have announced the release of their third full-length album. The upcoming effort, which follows 2015’s 10100II00101, will be titled Barbelith and will be released on April 13. The record, which was recorded by Pete Grossman, mixed by Sanford Parker, and mastered by Alan Douches, will feature seven new tracks and overarching themes inspired by Grant Morrison’s comic series The Invisibles. The band said the following of the upcoming release:
“Barbelith will be our first record featuring a single, full-time vocalist, having historically opted for a mix of instrumental tracks and a revolving cast of guest vocalists. Barry Kotarba (Boatman’s Toll) was brought on board just a couple months before we began recording, and a series of synchronicities were gradually made evident to him the themes and ideas that would become Barbelith, one story of a single soul’s perspective within humanity’s search for truth and self.”
