Alright, no one freak out, but FACT is reporting that Current 93 have a new record coming out February 8 of next year. It’s called I Am the Last of all The Field That Fell a title which, yeah, I know, is kinda murdery in that special-plan-for-this-world-perfect-mind-thundering-David Tibet-y kind of way. Beyond the date and title, there’s not much detail on the album just yet. Trust me, I understand going into the apocalypse with information so scant can seem a little intimidating. I mean, I have a wife and kids at home too (and I actually told my wife I’d pick up some organic milk on the way home so I’m double screwed if we all get consumed by a spontaneous lava flow or whatever), but please try to remain calm.
Pay no mind to the hooded figure that just handed me a package. He’s just here to drop off my advance copy of the book of Tibet’s lyrics, Sing Omega, that’s also coming out on February 8 of next year. That’s right, review copy, bitches! Even in the apocalypse, being a part of the liberal media has its perks. I also got some advance tickets to the Current 93 performance on the day that’s also on February 8 at London’s Union Chapel. To be honest though, I’m probably going to throw them up on StubHub or something. I’ve heard from an anonymous source close to Satan himself that the whole apocalypse thing will be full speed ahead by then, and the Union Chapel will be at the bottom of a crater and filled up with beasts whose taste for human flesh cannot be slaked. A Current 93 concert at the bottom of a crater combined with the opportunity to use the word “slaked” in a sentence? Yes please! Attending that concert while beset by unearthly beasts on every side? Thank you very much, sir, but I think I’m busy that night.
