||Post metallers Rosetta have recently detailed their new EP. Currently being mastered, it will be titled Flies To Flame. According to the band, it'll be out later this year in traditional formats — LP and CD — on Translation Loss Records. Read all about the first details and tracklist below.
The band explains: "This recording was a departure from our normal working style. We wrote the material in late 2012 and recorded it in a garage in early 2013, while we were writing The Anaesthete. It's deliberately lo-fi, jangly, and experimental, a tribute to the stripped-down sound of the post-rock and drone records we loved when Rosetta began. Most of it was improvised as it was being recorded, and it was not edited or 'fixed' to make it sound polished. All the grit is there. We used different instruments and equipment than we normally play with, since this material isn't intended to be played live. Instead it functions as a kind of process document, from an important and transitional year in our life as a band."
"For the first time since The Galilean Satellites, we did all recording and mixing ourselves (with the invaluable help of our intern engineer, Alex Ruday). Mike Wohlberg is returning to create the artwork and layout, and James Plotkin is mastering it for both CD and vinyl."
