New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Thou have announced their return with new full-length, 'Magus'. With the impending release of 'Magus', the band have decided to take a different approach and release three EPs ahead of the full-length, each of which the band note "are all a complete sonic departure from 'Magus' and from each other...".

Sacred Bones Records is proud to present the new album, 'Magus', Thou's first full-length since 2014's Heathen. In the months leading into the new album, Thouwill be releasing three drastically different EPs: The House Primordial on Raw Sugar, Inconsolable on Community Records, and Rhea Sylvia on Deathwish, Inc.Each record will focus on a particular sound-noisy drone, quiet acoustic, and melodic grunge-all of which is incorporated into the new LP, subsumed in the band's more standard doom metal.

While sonically, 'Magus' may be a continuation of Heathen, thematically it stands as a stark rebuttal, a journey beyond the principles of pleasure and pain. It is more the culmination of these distinct EPs, which all orbit some internal black hole. FFO alienation, absurdity, boredom, futility, decay, the tyranny of history, the vulgarities of change, awareness as agony, reason as disease.

Though often lumped in with New Orleans sludge bands like Eyehategod and Crowbar, Thou shares a more spiritual kinship with '90s proto-grunge bands like Nirvana, Alice in Chains, and Soundgarden (all of whom they've covered extensively, both in the studio and onstage). The band's aesthetic and political impulses reflect the obscure'90s DIY hardcore punk found on labels like Ebullition, Vermiform, and Crimethinc. From 2004 through 2016, the band has released four full-length albums, six EPs (some bordering on full lengths), two collaboration records with The Body, and enough material spread out over splits to make up another four or five LPs.
'Magus' is available August 31st on Sacred Bones Records.
