New Six Orders of Admittance album due

Six Organs of Admittance’s recent output has been a fascinating exercise in relinquished control, as Ben Chasny spread the word of his Hexadic system of musical composition by creating two albums according to its principles. Now, for the first time since 2012’s Ascent, Chasny is back as Six Organs of Admittance, and Drag City will be releasing the brand new full length record “Burning The Threshold” on February 24th – and to mark the occasion, there will be a special show at London’s St Pancras Old Church on 22nd of February.

As ever, a head full of ideas were driving Chasny to think and speak music as a spirituality superimposed onto a reality, with the ghosts of both whispering at each other. In the end, what sits in our listening ears is the sound of communion. Nobody plays acoustic music quite like Six Organs of Admittance, and Burning the Threshold brings a wealth of his established lightness into one of his sweetest musical meditations yet.
