WHAT THIS CAMPAIGN IS ABOUT:
Pre-Order vinyl or CD versions of "The Rise of Disaster Capitalism" and get them a month before the official release date of 6/13.
Tyranny Is Tyranny have been moving away from the stormy, metal-edged post-rock of their 2013 debut album, Let It Come From Whom It May. The songs on the new album The Rise Of Disaster Capitalism move at once toward more sparse post-punk influences and toward more open-ended, harmonically daring territory... That duality is embodied in “Pillar Of Cloud, Pillar Of Fire," previewed in the making-of video: Like several songs on this album, it features mournful trumpet from bassist [M. Guy Ficcioto], and while familiar Tyranny elements like Russell Hall and Jason Jensen's dynamically deliberate guitars and Hall's excoriating vocals predominate, this material has something a lot more spacious and unsettling built into it. This is also the band's first recording with drummer Jonathan Brown. -- Scott Gordon, Tone Madison
