Author & Punisher To Release “Beastland” In October, Debut “Nihil Strength” Video


Author & Punisher‘s sixth full-length album “Beastland” will land in stores on October 05th via Relapse Records. The band’s mastermind Tristan Shone commented of the upcoming record:

“I built new machines for this album to make more aggressive and dynamic music. These devices are compact and powerful, made from robotic components, intended for high energy repetition. I, as do many others, feel rage against the Beasts of our era: those who horde, who poison, or who discriminate. We need aggressive music to make an aggressive statement.

Beastland‘ is an introspection of who we are as a human race. At a time when we have the tools, the intellect, and the history to remind us how to treat each other and the earth, we go far out of our way to feast on the less fortunate and vulnerable, disregarding the atrocities and lessons of the past.”
