The one-man gloom band known as Planning For Burial will release its third full-length album Below the House on March 10th. The highly anticipated single “Dull Knife Pt. 1” has premiered alongside a new interview with PFB mastermind Thom Wasluck on Invisible Oranges.
Below the House offers nine sullen and frequently heavy songs that brim with nostalgia and suburban ennui. It is a return to form of sorts to Planning for Burial‘s beloved first album, an introverted work characterized by its heavy dynamics and personal obsessions. Likewise Below the House is a work that feels just as private, as it was created in the dark and not expressed in Wasluck’s day to day life.
In late 2014, Wasluck left the red house in New Jersey he’d called home for the last decade to return to his childhood bedroom in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Back in the house where he grew up, Thom found himself cut off from the familiarities of the previous decade as he put himself to work in the family trade. The monotony of routine quickly set in; work, home, and alcohol day after day became the norm. The childhood room that had given birth to his primordial four-track recordings was now a place of emptiness. These conditions set the stage for Planning For Burial‘s third full-length,Below the House. Pre-order the album here and stay tuned for more Planning For Burial news to come soon.
