The video for the track “Here Comes The Rain” from the latest Foetus album HIDE is finally completed and online for your viewing pleasure. The video was directed by Dan Ouellette and produced by Robert Nuell. Shot on location outside of New Paltz, NY and on a set built by Ouellette in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, the video’s director of photography was Sam Chase and it was edited by Logan Seaman. The girl in the video was played by Louise Sturcken and the goat was played by Hershey. You can also view it Vimeo, YouTube, and soon on Vevo.
The highly acclaimed new Foetus album is now available digitally at the foetus.org shoppe. It is also available on CD in a luxurious digipack exclusively from the site, and comes packed with a 5″ x 5″ sticker of the striking album artwork, signed in gold by JG Thirlwell himself. You can listen to previews and order here. It will be available on iTunes and through other digital vendors in November.
Ectopic Ents is proud to announce the release of the long awaited new studio album by Foetus, entitled HIDE.
HIDE features ten new compositions by JG Thirlwell, who describes it as a “neo-symphonic avant-psychedelic concept album informed by the culture of fear”. Kicking off with a nine minute operatic opus featuring the guest vocal talents of opera singer Abby Fischer, HIDE is an immersive album infused with strands of progressive and contemporary classical, as well as Thirlwell’s twisting cinematic journeys, bombast and sombre interludes.
Thirlwell produced the album and performs most of the music. Also guesting on the album are long time collaborator Steven Bernstein on trumpet and Leyna Marika Papach from Thirlwell’s Manorexia ensemble on violin. In addition Elliot Hoffman of Carbomb plays drums on a track, and there are appearances from Ed Pastorini, Jeff Davidson and Christian Gibbs (Lucinda Blackbear).
