Experimental rock trio STEARICA reveal their special guest artists and premiere ‘Shāh Māt’, their collaboration with Colin Stetson (Tom Waits, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver) / UK Tour Dates

STEARICA are very proud to share the fruits of their collaborative efforts with acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Colin Stetson, who has also worked with such luminaries as Tom WaitsDavid ByrneThe Arcade FireLou ReedThe NationalTV On The Radio and Bon Iver.

Shāh Māt, the final track on the album, is a terrifying, primordial beast of a track that captures a sense of conflict and struggle at the most basic level. Listen here:

As with the rest of their sophomore album, ‘Fertile’STEARICA took as their inspiration the uprisings of the Arab Spring and the Barcelona Indignants. “The album was born more or less consciously with the images of those squares filtered daily by the Western media front of our eyes.” – Francesco Carlucci.

For the track, Colin Stetson arranged and performed flute, french horns, tenor and bass saxophones.

The band is also very proud to announce that their friends and sometimes touring partners Scott McCloud (Girls Against Boys) and Ryan Patterson (Coliseum) have also contributed vocals to the tracks ‘Amreeka’ and Nur.

The new album will be out worldwide on the 13th of April.

A CD and deluxe vinyl edition of 500 copies (200 black, 300 red/black) in a double gatefold sleeve with a poster and album CD included inside) can also be pre-ordered from the Monotreme Records web shop:

The artwork, by Albanian artist Moisi Guga, beautifully reflects the symbolic imagery of the concept of ‘Fertile’.  

STEARICA will be on tour in the UK in April:
25th  Blackpool – The Blue Room

27th  Brighton – The Hope and Ruin

28th London – The Old Blue Last
