Canberra, Australia’s I, EXIST pummeling second album of sludge infused hardcore / punk, captured to tape by wizard producer Billy Anderson and released on the new Lost Shepherd Recordings imprint.
Never content to rest on their laurels, Canberra sludge merchants I Exist spent the first half of March recording the follow-up to last year’s I: A Turn for the Worse. The new LP, II: The Broken Passage, will be out through Lost Shepherd/Prosthetic Records on January 31st - barely a year after their debut.
To cut the long-player, the now seven-piece returned to Melbourne’s Goatsound Studios, this time with Billy Anderson helming the desk, whose production credits include Sleep’s Sleep’s Holy Mountain and Eyehategod’s Dopesick: both hugely influential records for the band. Anderson’s CV also includes albums for groups as diverse as the Melvins, Jawbreaker, High on Fire, Sick of it All and Acid King.
