Ben Frost announces Threshold of Faith EP with Steve Albini
In the summer of 2016 Ben Frost landed in Chicago to work with Steve Albini. Over two weeks – vast systems; unstable, overloaded, and on the verge of collapse – were fed into an array of amplifiers inside a cavernous studio. Shapes were formed, speakers were torn. Behind the glass Albini committed live performances to tape; slashing at them intermittently with a razorblade. More than 2 hours of music was recorded. The threshold of faith EP is the first release of music from those sessions.
