Following their debut collaborative album as City & i.o in 2019, guitarist Will Ballantyne teams up with drummer Maxwell Patterson to release their second full-length via Éditions Appærent in November.
Composed at a frenetic pace over several weeks in 2020, ‘Chaos is God Neighbour‘ is not for the faint hearted. Consisting of 14 brutal tracks of abstract electronica, dark ambient, noise, post-hardcore and throat shredding vocals.
The album also features artwork designed by legendary Games Workshop illustrator John Blanche with design by Jesse Osborne-Lanthier, as well as extensive contributions from Dis Fig aka Felicia Chen, x/o aka Veron Xio and vvilms aka Aaron Wharton. Highlights from the album include ‘Omnistack‘, ‘Unkind (with Dis Fig)‘ and ‘Temprorare‘.
‘Chaos is God Neighbour’ is scheduled for release 1 November via Éditions Appærent. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
