Already flagged by the widely leaked ‘Kill It In The Morning’ and forthcoming first single proper, ‘Sick’ (November 14th), ‘No One Can Ever Know’ marks a sonic shift for The Twilight Sad. Freshly inspired by a listening diet of Caberet Voltaire, Liars, Magazine, Autechre, Banshees, Fad Gadget, PiLand Can, a synth-heavy sound characterizes ‘No One Can Ever Know’, a record thematically akin to ‘Holy Bible’ era Manics, ‘Violator’-era Depeche Mode and ‘The Downward Spiral’ -era Nine Inch Nails.
Under the guidance of Andrew Weatherall the band found inspiration too in the distinctive production style of innovators like Martin Hannett and Conny Plank. For the first time the drums were also recorded separately utilising a lot of synthetic effects which allowed for the easy manipulation of the sounds and samples later in the process. Stylistically, the guitars tend to refract John McGeogh (Magazine/ Banshees) or Keith Levene (PiL) rather than the 'wall of sound' approach that defined The Twilight Sad’s previous recordings.
The record will be available as 180grm heavy weight limited vinyl (with free mp3 download code), CD and a choice of digital formats. Pre-order now for an exclusive opportunity to order the forthcoming 7" single of album cut 'Another Bed' two weeks before its official pre-order date. The 7" is limited to 200 copies and is backed with non-album track A Million Ignorants.
