Genghis Tron announce first record in 13 years, Dream Weapon, out March 26th via Relapse Records
Genghis Tron make their return with their highly anticipated new album, Dream Weapon, which marks the band’s first new studio outing in over a decade. Genghis Tron’s Hamilton Jordan and Michael Sochynsky are now joined by two new collaborators – vocalist Tony Wolski and drummer Nick Yacyshyn (Sumac, Baptists) -, and together, the lineup perfects the unique mix of extreme rock and electronic music Genghis Tron has pioneered over their storied career. A melding of hypnotic rhythms and densely layered synth soundscapes, Dream Weapon was recorded and produced alongside long-time collaborator Kurt Ballou (Converge) at God City Studio in Salem, Massachusetts, with additional production and engineering by Ben Chisholm (Chelsea Wolfe) and JJ Heath (Rain City Recorders), and mastered by Heba Kadry.
Lyrically and conceptually, Dream Weapon picks up where Board Up The House left off. “That album’s closing track, ‘Relief’, was about how humans have become a burden to the planet, and how Earth will endure long after we’re gone,” Hamilton Jordan explains. “There is sadness at the end, but some relief—and beauty—too. Dream Weapon is, loosely, an album-length meditation on that theme”. Below this article you can listen to the record’s title-track and first single.
Dream Weapon is out March 26, 2021 on CD/LP/Digital. Physical pre-orders of the record are available here.
