Serena-Maneesh – “Opium Priest”

The 7-minute “Opium Priest” comes from Serena-Maneesh’s Best split 12″ with Fucked Up (who contributed “Here Lies“). It’s a previously unreleased track from the S-M 2: Abyss in B Minor sessions that’s not quite as tough as an Opium Warlord. We’re told Henry Olsen handled the cello, that the bass is by “[the] bass player from Primal Scream” (Mani?). Listen at the label’s website.

The Serena-Maneesh/Fucked Up split is out 8/11 via Best Of Both Worlds in an edition of 1,000. You can pre-order now via Rough Trade.
