This Is New Album-core with Down I Go

Down I GoHUGE NEWS. Down I Go are back. Well, they’re going to record an album at least, which is excellent.

For those unfamiliar, Down I Go made/make concept albums (dinosaurs, disasters, robots, tyrants and gods) and are generally fucking brilliant. They split up a few years back due to band members all living in different countries.

Here’s what their complete discography looks like.

But now, a Kickstarter exists – they’ve been asked to go to Iceland, write an album at a travel farm in Fljótstunga. Full details of this project can be found on this Kickstarter page, complete with a list of rewards, video links and generally excellent album art.

Obviously, the £50 date with Alan is the best reward – who WOULDN’T want that? (Toronto residence only).

Five Down I Go songs you should listen to:

1. Brachiosaurus  (from This Is Dinocore)

“I’M ENORMOUS! I’M SO MASSIVE!”

2. Gigantic! Titanic! (from This Is Disastercore)

“ICEBERG! DEAD AHEAD! ICEBERG! DEAD AHEAD! ABANDON SSSSSSSHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!”

3. Saparmurat Niyazov (from Tyrant)

“IDOLISE GIANT ROTATING STATUE, LOOK AT IT TURNING TO FACE THE SUN/TURKMENBASHI, FATHER OF THE TURKMEN. TURKMENBASHI, FATHER OF THE TURKMEN.”

4.  Poseidon (from Gods)

“KNOCK DOWN THE WALL, PUNISH THE KING, UNLEASH CHAOS, EAT HIS DAUGHTER!”

5. T-1000 (from This Is Robotcore)

“WHAT’S WRONG WITH WOLFIE? JOHN YOUR FOSTER PARENTS ARE DEAD!”
