To commemorate the advent of their second decade as a band, the incendiary And So I Watch You From Afar have confirmed initial context to their next release Jettison.
Equal parts political, cultural and musical, Jettison is a genre defying enterprise with an irreverential two finger salute against convention.
The 50 minute AV piece is an evangelical journey through a specially created landscape world from the beautifully villainous mind of visual artist San Wiehl and see’s the band at their most introspective, accompanied for the first time by a string quartet.
Further details will be supplied on a need to know basis with band frontman Rory Friers elaborating
‘Jettison is a project unlike any the band has ever undertaken before. It is a trifecta of music, art and hundreds of years of oral tradition. The record is being released in a distribution format that as far as we can tell NO artist has ever utilized before and is our attempt at a ray of sunlight in the bleak contemporary situation we, as society currently find ourselves in’
‘YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE WHO WE ARE COLLABORATING WITH ON THIS’
The band have just announced a tour for Jettison that will see them parking the van outside some of the UK’s most prestigious venues in February 2020.
