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)
