| GLITTERHOUSE WELCOMES JOE VOLK
posted at 10/13/2015
In February 2016 his new album 'Happenings and Killings' will be released on Glitterhouse. Volk worked closely with the Emmy nominated composer Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow, with both credited as additional producers along with Volk. The spectrum of the album is broad, ranging from low-fi acoustic pieces featuring subtle analogue electronics to more realised tracks, layered with drums, bass, synths and Volk's harmonies and intricate guitar work.
Joe Volk was the original singer and lyricist in the British Progressive Post-Rock band Crippled Black Phoenix, who appeared amongst others twice on The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project (Glitterhouse Records), and the hard rock band Gonga. After six studio albums, one live album and several EP's, Volk left Crippled Black Phoenix to focus his energy on his solo material.
A track from the record will be released in December of this year along with an exclusive video by award winning visual artist Craig Murray (Mogwai, Converge). Volk will be touring the UK and Europe with a new live band in the spring of 2016.
