on July 30, 2015, 10:15am

HEALTH will release its new album, DEATH MAGIC, on August 7th via Loma Vista. In anticipation, the LP is streaming in full below via NPR.com.

The 12-track effort marks the band’s first full-length in six years following 2009’s Get Color. It was recorded with the help of UK producer and Björk affiliate The Haxan Cloak and engineers Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Beyoncé) and Lars Stalfors (Mars Volta, Matt & Kim). DEATH MAGIC is preceded by the songs “Stonefist”, “Men Today”, and “New Coke”.

In a recent interview, the experimental outfit spoke about its approach to recording the new LP:

“Yeah, it was very, very different. Obviously this record is more electronic and we’ve been moving in that direction. There are still drums, guitar and bass on it but there are a lot more electronic drums, instrumentation and weird sample stuff. So yeah, the first recorded we recorded ourselves in the snow with whatever resources we had available to us. The second one we done the traditional drums one weekend, guitars, bass and overdubs the next and then you spend your time mixing it trying to get it right. With this we wanted to make a record that was modern and relevant. That’s not to say the others weren’t, but it’s just, in the amount of time we’ve been a band there’s been a lot of innovations in music and so many of these innovations have been electronic which have changed the powerful nature in the way that you can present sounds.”

Pre-orders are ongoing.
