Modern Life Is War have announced an ongoing singles series titled Tribulation Worksongs and today, the band has released Volume 1. Featuring two tracks, “Feels Like End Times” (which originally premiered the music video form via Revolver Magazine) and “Lonesome Valley Ammunitions,” Tribulation Worksongs: Volume 1 is their first new release since 2013’s excellent LP, Fever Hunting.
Tribulation Worksongs: Volume 1 was recorded by Luke Tweedy at Flat Black Studios and mixed by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios. Aiming to be as hand built as possible, the lyrics/credits of each song were typed by Modern Life Is War vocalist/lyricist Jeff Eaton on his antique typewriter. These were later hand stamped on the front and back covers by artist Jacob Bannon, making each cover totally unique. The labels of the vinyl were also hand stamped before final assembly by the people at Deathwish.
Tribulation Worksongs: Volume 1 is available from Deathwish Inc.
Modern Life Is War will be on tour in the UK & Europe this Summer and will play select shows with Gorilla Biscuits and others this September in the U.S.A.
