Supporting Acts: Espermachine Assemblage 23
10 years after the release of Assemblage 23's debut album "Contempt" comes "Compass", the sixth album from the one-man project. The album is preceded by a 5-track maxi-single entitled "Spark", which includes 2 exclusive b-sides as well as remixes from Combichrist and Jade Puget of AFI & Blaqk Audio. "Compass" will be available in two formats: a limited, 2-disc version containing an extra 3 new songs, as well as remixes from Burikusu!!! and KMFDM, and a regular, 10-track version. Each version will have its own unique artwork. Assemblage 23's previous album "Meta" hinted at some change to the band's sound, and "Compass" provides perhaps the most dramatic evolution in style so far. "Compass" was composed with the idea of simply making good, electronic songs without being overly concerned with fitting into specific trappings of genre. Although A23's signature sound is still evident, this time the band takes cues from electro-house, post-punk, and the indie electronics scene.
