Failure, who recently announced their fourth album ‘The Heart Is A Monster’, share the cover art and track listing for the 18-song album. ‘The Heart Is A Monster’ is scheduled for a summer release in the UK.
Ken Andrews and Greg Edwards explain that their approach to writing and recording ‘Fantastic Planet’ and ‘The Heart Is A Monster’ have been similar, saying “The songs on ‘Fantastic Planet’ appear more or less in the order that we wrote them… when, we do a song now, we write it and record it soup-to-nuts without moving to another song… It takes longer, but it makes more sense for us artistically to explore a song completely before moving on.”
Failure’s SXSW performance, which was the trio’s first live outing since wrapping production on ‘The Heart is A Monster’, included the new song ‘Hot Traveler’, which Entertainment Weekly said “had every bit the sonic thickness, rhythmic thump, and melodic bite as favorites like ‘Another Space Song’ and ‘Heliotropic.’”
The band is also offering a free download of the single ‘Hot Traveler’, available here: http://www.unlock.fm/3g2.
