Every once in a while, three beloved avant-garde musicians — Sun City Girls guitarist Sir Richard Bishop, Six Organs Of Admittance/Comets On Fire guitarist Ben Chasny, ronin drummer Chris Corsano — will get together to record way-out instrumental rock as Rangda. Their last album as a group was 2012’s Formerly Extinct, and now they’ve gotten back together to drop a new one, The Heretic’s Bargain, early next year. First single “To Melt The Moon” sounds like what might’ve happened if Mr. Bungle had ever tried to make a spaghetti-Western soundtrack. Listen to it below.
The Heretic’s Bargain is out 2/19 on Drag City.
