With the new studio full-length from NEUROSIS set to erupt in late October, the first track of the massive Honor Found In Decay has been set loose via National Public Radio. The pyroclastic surge of “At The Well” coalesces the emotive and expansive elements of the act into a ten minute hymn, which helps reaffirm why NEUROSIS remain one of the most important heavy acts in existence.

The fifth NEUROSIS album to be handled by engineering sorcerer Steve Albini, the hour-long Honor Found In Decay is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated albums of 2012. The seven tracks harnessed within this release capture the unit’s output at its most emotional and diverse yet, forming what the band members themselves are referring to as their pinnacle studio effort. NEUROSIS recently unveiled a visual trailer for the album using imagery shot and created by their own visual artist Josh Graham, and edited together by video architect Kenneth Thomas, who directed their 2007 Given To The Rising documentary. For the first time in the band’s history, intimate details of the handcrafted cover artwork have been made publicly available, allowing the installation to be viewed in motion, not just still photographs. View the trailer and more on Honor Found In Decay.
Set to see release through the NEUROSIS’ own Neurot Recordings, the CD and deluxe download versions of Honor Found In Decay will be unleashed in Germany October 26th, in the rest of Europe October 29th, and in North America on October 30th, with their previous label home Relapse Records handling the vinyl edition. Preorders will begin on October 15th via Neurot’s webstore.
