MINUS STORY unveil new video, make tour only release available

MINUS STORY has released a new video for the song “Stitch Me Up” from their album My Ion Truss. You can check out the video on the Jagjaguwar media page (link is on top of page) or watch it on YouTube here

After recording My Ion Truss, the band still had a lot of material and gumption to record, thus a full length’s worth of material was recorded. It became Make The Dead Come and it’s the band’s favorite recording to date. This album was only available from Minus Story at their live shows. They had some leftover and we are happy to make Make The Dead Come available to stores December 4. Ask your favorite retailer about it.

New LIGHTNING DUST, MINUS STORY Records Available For Pre-order Now!

These 2 fab new release for June are now available for pre-order at SC Distribution:

Lightning Dust – s/t cd/lp

Amber Webber and Joshua Wells have been playing together for many years as part of Black Mountain. With an abundance of creative energy to spare, the two decided to start a separate project together, that they named Lightning Dust. Committing themselves to a more simplistic approach with Lightning Dust, Webber and Wells also decided to escape the comforts of their familiar instruments and writing styles. On their self-titled debut, minimal and spacious arrangements and a moody, theatrical vocal-style aptly expose the demons, creating songs that creep into your bones with a haunting chill.

Minus Story – My Ion Truss cd/lp

My Ion Truss is Minus Story’s Studio Album. It was recorded at Electrical Audio in Chicago with John Congleton (Explosions In the Sky, The Polyphonic Spree). Having a producer behind the controls for the first time allowed them to work more collectively as a band, giving them the freedom to record the primary tracks completely live. It is the closest thing to Minus Story’s cathartic live show that they’ve put to tape to date. The result is an epic & anthemic cross between Pearl Jam, Queen, Brian Eno, and Roxy Music.
