Pre-order – Bānhūs package deals inc vinyl, CDs, t-shirts


Perth’s adored post-hardcore quintet Eleventh He Reaches London will reveal their third album, Bānhūs via Hobbledehoy Records on 4 October 2013. The next moody volume from the triple guitar wielding Goliath will be accompanied by some very welcome, long-awaited tour dates.

Bānhūs is an Old English word meaning ‘body’, literally translating as ‘bone-house’. The album’s title and lyrical themes of existence, misery and death are captured in sonic form across seven songs of despair that feature both Eleventh’s most introspective material to date, and its hardest-hitting. Three years were spent writing the album, and a year was spent in the studio using techniques never before adopted by the band. Bānhūs is Eleventh He Reaches London’s most ambitious work yet.

This is not ‘safe indie music’ or ‘blissed out psych’. Bānhūs is raw, organic, intricately detailed and layered with melody. This is a band that has shared stages with acts as diverse as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge, ISIS, Cult Of Luna, Against Me!, Boris and Les Savy Fav, and garnered several nods from WA’s illustrious WAMI Awards. Bānhūs will be a gift to eager old fans, and a fascinating ride for unwitting new ones.

New OWEN LP pre-order


Limited AUS/NZ coloured vinyl pressing! The songs Mike Kinsella writes as OWEN have always had rock solid lyrical foundations. And on L’Ami du Peuple, the same can be said for the music. Emphasis on the rock. Anyone vaguely familiar with Kinsella’s musical lineage (CAP’N JAZZ, AMERICAN FOOTBALL, OWLS) knows he’s far from a one-note musician. And now, he expands his repertoire as a solo songwriter to include a touch of female vocals, pounding drums, and even dueling electric guitar lines that are the closest thing he’s done in tribute to his 80s hair metal obsession.
