Dopo il live album handmade ‘ATL2ELP’ uscito a fine dicembre, mezzo attraverso il quale gli Akron/Family hanno raccolto fondi per il seguito di ‘Akron/Family II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT’ uscito nel 2011, la band americana annuncia proprio il nuovo album dal titolo ‘Sub Verses’. E’ Seth Olinsky a darne notizia ad inizio gennaio raccontando la genesi: “The album started with visions of large monumental sounds inspired by Heizer and Turrell; American works on a grand scale, monuments, dirty hands and an epic American masculinity. Dust, Stone, Sky, Earth. These broad, bold strokes would come to pass but not quite as expected. A Sci Fi aesthetic narrative emerged. Tackling distant pasts and future humanism, the pain and idiocy of our contemporary culture. How to deal with it open heartedly? The boredom, the sadness and speed. The plots within plots of Dune mirrored in many layers of sound. Creating 3D sonic atmospheres that our songs and singers inhabit. Our story, a story, all stories. Told in verses, in underground language, in sub frequencies. Not audible, only felt, intuited, imagined in some deepest psychic space that you are yet to know. A strange story. Of the future, of yourself. Of everyone. We are all we are, only this and yet we move forward. Along some line to somewhere. And who knows?”. Il disco esce il 30 aprile via Dead Oceans e l’artwork è stato disegnato da Stephen O’Malley dei Sunn O))). Il primo brano disponibile è ‘No Room’ (ascolta), il nuovo ‘Until The Morning’ (ascolta).
