The new Church of Hed album, Electric Sepulcher, is officially released!
You can buy the CDs and digital audio (in a variety of formats, including FLAC) from CD Baby or directly from us (we throw in some free albums as well when ordering from us). Check out the shop on our new website, the Audio and Media page has videos for every CoH tune as well — including Electric Sepulcher. The album will be available on iTunes, Amazon MP3, and other digital providers shortly.
We’re happy the album is finally able to be heard all over the world. We are also looking forward to starting on new albums and continuing work on the sequel to Rivers of Asphalt.
Church of Hed’s Paul Williams: “This is the first album I’ve recorded and released since Quarkspace retired (or went on hiatus) last year. As such, it is easily the most focused Church of Hed album to date. I really was inspired to take my playing and composing to a higher level being without the “nurturing arms” of the mothership, Quarkspace. Mixing electronica with organic and kinetic playing was my goal and I hope you freak on the result. Indeed.”
The album is dedicated to the memory of Gong’s Daevid Allen, Tangerine Dream’s Edgar Froese, Cluster’s Dieter Moebius, and Yes’s Chris Squire. All four artists, who tragically passed earlier this year, are major influences on Church of Hed and Quarkspace for that matter.
Expect more updates in the coming weeks as more digital audio providers add the album to their services.
