Providence based cosmonauts QUEEN ELEPHANTINE inked a deal with ARGONAUTA Records for a worldwide CD release of their fifth opus “kala” next fall.

With a fluid lineup and various experiments in approach over the course of their four albums, Queen Elephantine is a nebulous worship of heavy mood and time. The group formed in 2006 in Hong Kong but has always been a shapeshifter. At the end of 2007 it moved base to New York and is currently based in Providence.

QUEEN ELEPHANTINE “continue to dwell far outside of genre confines and on a plane of their own making in psychedelic ritual, drone, doom, jazz”.

The Sleeping Shaman wrote of their last album: “This is how you intoxicate your audience… The perfect storm of instrumentation, musicians and sensibilities; the vision is singular, and the results are spectacular… A majestic, downtrodden, mystical form of drone doom unlike anything I have heard for a while.”

The fifth album “kala” will be released October 21st, 2016 and will see a partnership between different labels for each format:

CD – Argonauta Records (Italy)
LP – Cimmerian Shade Records (US)
Cassette – Tartarus Records (Netherlands)
Digital – Atypeek Music (France)
