A Winged Victory for the Sullen share teaser for next full-length Atomos, announce tour dates

On October 6, Kranky and Erased Tapes will release the second album from A Winged Victory for the Sullen, the ambient (or as their Facebook categorizes them, “harmonic robitussin”) duo of Adam Wiltzie (also of Stars of the Lid) and Dustin O’Halloran. The follow-up to their stunningly elegiac 2011 self-titled debut, Atomos was originally composed for Random Dance Company founder and resident choreographer of the Royal Ballet Wayne McGregor who commissioned an original score from Wiltzie and O’Halloran for a dance piece. It was only once they found themselves deep in the recording process that the pair recognized they were creating their second album, which finds them expanding on their chamber sound with the addition of more electronic elements.
