Video starring David Yow (The Jesus Lizard, Scratch Acid) with a memorable performance 

“For the most part it was liberating. Who doesn’t wanted to get covered in flour naked and wrapped in plastic?” – David Yow

New album Night of Your Ascension out now! 

David Yow (The Jesus Lizard, Scratch Acid) gives a memorable star performance in the new video from Wrekmeister Harmonies for the title track off the new album “Night of Your Ascension” (out today!). Shot in Los Angeles, the video was filmed by Wrekmeister Harmonies’ leader J.R. Robinson along with Adam Harding.

Yow says of the video-making experience (a full interview with Yow is posted to the Wrekmeister Harmonies press page in the “documents” section):

 “It was a little hard, there was one part when we were shooting in an alleyway and I was essentially naked walking down this alleyway being a little bit rude. Then at one point we were laying in some dirt and threw a bunch of flour on me and it went in my mouth and up my nose and that was less than fun. But for the most part it was, you know, liberating. Who doesn’t wanted to get covered in flour naked and wrapped in plastic?”

Night of Your Ascension is a beautiful, brutal record. A commentary on our own fascination with bloodlust and our seemingly insatiable appetite for lurid depictions of depravity. The album features contributions from nearly 30 musicians, including The Body, Alexander Hacke (Einsturzende Neubauten), Cooper Crain (Cave), Marissa Nadler, Mary Lattimore, Olivia Block, Eric Chaleff (Bloodiest), Dylan O’Toole and Ron DeFries of Indian, Bruce Lamont, Sanford Parker, Mark Solotroff (Anatomy of Habit), Solomon Lee Walker (Morrissey), Chris Brokaw (Come), and Jaime Fennelly (Mind Over Mirrors).

Wrekmeister Harmonies will be touring the US with Bell Witch in December. Full list of dates: HERE
