‘Winterlong’, the psychedelic new album from EXECUTIONER’S MASK is set for release on
CD/LP/Digital from Profound Lore Records on June 17th, 2022. An epic bouquet of swelling synths,
hypnotic melodies, and noisy guitars marry post-punk and shoegaze in ten songs exploring themes of
liberation and self-destruction in these end-times. In the studio, the core group of Gambit, Mickle and
Wilson added Christian Molenaar into the fold on synths; adding an ethereal edge to the band’s harddriving melancholy. Additional touches were added by Kennedy Ashlyn (SRSQ) and Jake Superchi (Uada, Ceremonial Castings), each adding their distinct sonic fingerprints that send their compositions further into territories unexplored.
Featuring production from Jeff Zeigler (The War On Drugs) and Ryan Schwabe (Oneohtrix Point Never), ‘Winterlong’ is the type of sublime and immersive album that inspires the same visions often conjured by masters like The National, Alcest and Deerhunter. On stage, Gambit, Mickle, and Molenaar are joined by Anthony Charletta on bass, Melissa Lochambon on drums, and Daniel Gaona on guitar to create an explosive force of sound that come together with the potency of ‘Children of God’ era Swans.
