Dave Lombardo’s PHILM has announced that their long awaited second studio album, Fire From The Evening Sun, will be released on the band’s new label, UDR Music, on September 16, 2014 in the US (September 15 in UK/September 12 in other European territories).
“UDR is honored to be working with PHILM. This partnership seems very instinctual,” said UDR Music’s head of A&R/Marketing, Jay Lansford. “Dave Lombardo and I worked together during the Grip Inc. years. After hearing PHILM’s new album this alliance was clearly divine will. Powerful, intense… urgent. These three prolific musicians have created something that is refreshingly not mundane, but ear-shattering and groundbreaking.”
Led by the title track single ‘Fire From The Evening Sun’, PHILM’s unparalleled drummer, Dave Lombardo, states that the new album will mark a different turn in the bands musical journey. “PHILM’s first album, Harmonic, is still an amazing work to me. It’s improvisational and raw. It was my first time producing an album and I am very proud of it. The new album is a completely different animal. It is again produced by me, but mastered and mixed by a couple of musical giants… Tyler Bates and Robert Carranza. I believe this album has a daring, callous temperament about it that really sums up our mindset right now. No improvising, no fluff. It’s heavy and in your face from start to finish. You may think you know what PHILM is, but you don’t. If you haven’t seen us live, you have no idea. We thrive on being out of our comfort zones and want fans to take that ride.”
If ‘Fire From The Evening Sun’ is any indication, this album will not only give Lombardo fans what they have so passionately missed, but will take us on a heated musical journey that will leave us soaked in sonic beatitude.
PHILM – Gerry Nestler (vocals, guitars), Pancho Tomaselli (bass) and Dave Lombardo (drums) – will hit the road this fall in support of the album by performing several shows throughout Europe and the U.S. with more dates to be confirmed.
