Arnold Dreyblatt and Megafaun collaborate on new full-length for Northern Spy; generations to come will speak in hushed tones of the APPALACHIAN EXCITATION

SEPTEMBER! SEPTEMBER! SEPTEMBER! Get ready, internet, for the biggest collaborative experimental folk LP of the year! This September, your brain is going to explode! Drink will flow!! Blood will spill!! MEGAFAUN and ARNOLD “DRY SPLAT” DREYBLATT come together to collaborate in destruction. It’s the APPALACHIAN EXCITATION! Psych-folk trio Megafaun, living up to their genre, are unstoppably psychotic. Dreyblatt is known the whole world over for grinding his opponents to an even more minimal pulp than his compositions! On September 17, tune in when the two go head-to-head in collaborative fury inside the NORTHERN SPY RECORDS THUNDERDOME ARENA OF DEATH!!!

Megafaun and Dreyblatt have intermittently worked together since 2008 when Megafaun unleashed some of Dreyblatt’s compositions at the Wire Festivals in Chicago, Boston, and New York City. But those, those were mere warning shots. The true frenzy did not come to pass until the two collaborated at last year’s Hopscotch Music Festival and later entered the steel-cage battle studio of Pinebox Recording in Graham, North Carolina (the collaboration was put off for so long because of conflicting schedules and fear of uncontrollable outcomes!!!) Recorded mostly live and without a click track, Megafaun’s Joe Westerlund says the album “marks a step towards Megafaun becoming more of a live-in-the-studio recording band,” one capable of unimaginable fervor!! Of collaborations such as this, Dreyblatt has said, “We are no longer one-dimensional people,” because the unbridled furor violates the very laws of physics!!

The APPALACHIAN EXCITATION, coming this September is a once-in-a-lifetime event that only the gravest of fools would dare to miss. Listen to “Home Hat Placement” from the album below, if you feel you are prepared. SEPTEMBER! SEPTEMBER! SEPTEMBER!
