Following up from the mighty "Valley Of Lead" EP
that was released last year, Northless have unleashed
some sonic abuse for your aural pleasure.
This is sludge with a hardcore edge to things. Mid paced tracks
provide a platform for the strong song writing to shine out with

WORLD KEEPS SINKING, the darkest and heaviest album yet from Milwaukee's NORTHLESS, will be released as a collaboration between Wisconsin labels HALO OF FLIES and GILEAD MEDIA on August 23, 2013. Seven tracks of concentrated aggression and melody make up this expansive DLP that sees Northless surpass us all into a world of their own making.
Northless believes World Keeps Sinking "showcases the heaviness that Northless is known for, along with an expanded palette of tones and timbres heretofore unexplored by the band." The album was recorded and mixed at Howl Street Studios with Shane Hochstetler and mastered by Carl Saff.
600 copies of World Keeps Sinking will be pressed on 180gram vinyl and distributed by Halo of Flies and Gilead Media: 200 on clear, 400 on black. Each DLP includes a download card.
