In the run up to this Friday’s release of SELIM LEMOUCHI & HIS ENEMIES debut full length album, the band has been confirmed to play Roadburn Festival in April, and unveiled a new video for the track Eschaton.
Earth Air Spirit Fire Water is released this Friday via Ván Records and can be streamed in its entirety here thanks to 3voor12.
Roadburn festival takes place 10th -13th April 2014 in Tilburg, NL and SELIM LEMOUCHI & HIS ENEMIES has been confirmed to play the mainstage at the Afterburner event on Sunday 13th . Having attempted to book Selim twice before in his previous musical outfit, The Devil’s Blood, Roadburn will finally host Selim’s musical endeavours. Festival director, Walter Hoeijmakersranks Earth Air Spirit Fire Water among his top Roadburn-related albums of the year.
On the festival appearance, Selim comments: “I am very glad to be a part of this festival again. Walter has given me another chance to present my works to a broader audience and I am grateful. I have plans to put together quite the performance with many of my Enemies…”
The video for Eschaton (a track taken from Selim’s debut EP) was created by Jerome Siegelaer in the summer of 2013.
Selim provides an insight to the video origins:
“Jérôme Siegelaer came up with this one. We went back to the place where photography was done for the Mens Animus Corpus cover and I took off my clothes for another swim. The video itself was later edited, I say later as it did take us all summer and autumn to get it finished, the reason for coming this late with it and not releasing it before this time is simple; we had no time. But for what it’s worth, here it is”
The video is viewable here.
Earth Air Spirit Fire Water was brought into being with four drummers, a handful of guitar players, a few synthesizer players, several vocalists, a great cover-artist and many, many hours that were filled with laughter, tears, anger and spiritual communion. Earth Air Spirit Fire Wateris released on December 6th.
To celebrate the release of Earth Air Spirit Fire Water, the Effenaar and TAC, together with Stichting Bloodcult, are organizing a album-release presentation at The Temporary Art Centre (TAC) in Eindhoven. The presentation will be accompanied by a live cinema performance by Jerome Siegelaer and art by Max Rovers and Selim Lemouchi.
The venue will open at 19:00 and the album-presentation will start, promptly, at 20:00. During the presentation the entire album will be performed as well as many other songs and audio experiments that have originated in Lemouchi’s mind.
After the presentation Walter Roadburn shall be our DJ until around midnight after which SELIM LEMOUCHI & HIS ENEMIES will take the stage again, this time in the so called “Tuinzaal”, where nothing will be planned and only improvisation and experimentation will be the leading force.
