Sacred Bones mark 100th release with lost album from NYC goth-punks The Hunt

Sacred Bones mark 100th release with lost album from NYC goth-punks The Hunt

Brooklyn’s Sacred Bones imprint hits its centenary. 

Since 2007, Sacred Bones have turned out dark psychedelic pop and alternative rock with a gothic streak – if it could reasonably soundtrack a bad trip, it’s probably got a potential place on their roster. Their biggest graduate remains Zola Jesus, who issued her breakthrough The Spoils EP on the imprint and has repeatedly returned ever since. Other key releases include records from dark Scandinavian shoegazers Lust For Youth, Gary War‘s blitzed 2009 LP Horribles Parade, and (major personal favourite alert) Amen Dunes’ brilliant 2011 album Through Donkey Jaw. Cannily, they’ve also recently formed a relationship with David Lynch, releasing his The Big Dream LP, reissuing the grinding Eraserhead OST, and excavating some forgotten Twin Peaks soundtrack material.

The 100th Sacred Bones release arrives from defunct NYC duo The Hunt – who, in a neat bit of circularity, were responsible for the first disc in the label’s catalogue. Jasper McGandy and Christian Kount’s post-punk project released the One Thousand Nights 7″ on the label, then promptly disappeared from recording history. In 2009, the group laid down debut album The Hunt Begins in Boston, but the record never saw the light of day. Interestingly, both McGandy and Kount now earn their keep playing with Sean Ragon’s warped neo-folk project Cult Of Youth.

Sacred Bones’ edition will mark the album’s first official release; expect spindly post-punk with a Gothic heart and more than a few nods to Interpol. The nine-track LP will arrive on December 11 – yep, that’s 11/12/13. Click below to stream ‘Fifteen Minutes’.

Tracklist:
1. Mountains (3:24)
2. Fifteen Minutes (3:46)
3. Summer of Hate (3:04)
4. Set the Rising Sun (4:06)
5. Black and White (4:32)
6. Scripts (5:12)
7. Trainwreck (3:58)
8. When The Sky Turns Black (3:24)
9. One Thousand Nights (4:23)
