As The Observatory reaches the ten year mark of its existence, we are pleased to announce the release of our fifth album.
Catacombs is the result of a year's worth of jamming. Sitting in a studio day after day to see what we could come up with. We only really found our direction in September 2011. The songs that made it onto the album are us after much play and consternation. Once again, we went up north to seek inspiration in the bleak and the cold. With each other, the incessant rain, and our producer Jorgen for company, we find ourselves venturing farther into the darkness that began with our last album. It's us attempting to cross wasted borders and find musical extremities that parallel the polarities within our lives. We paid homage to our musical heroes, Scott Walker mainly, but we’d be fools to say we got anywhere close.
We are happy to announce the release of our live sessions featuring the band in our own intimate studio setting, available to anyone who has purchased the album.
The Observatory - Enter The Catacomb is a 4-part series that gives you exclusive access to live performances of our new songs, filmed and recorded in our Goodman space.
