AXED CROWN - Amnesty

Axed CrownAmnesty comes out January 29th, 2016 on Asunder Records!
Cassette, CD, Digital

Axed Crown's first record Amnesty builds on layers of loss and beauty. The buzzing distortions and fading echoes reflect the transience of memory. Bittersweet melodies are woven with electronics smooth and rough, and swell from delicate washes to heavy waves. The sounds are as much about texture as they are tones. There are moments of clarity and obfuscation as instruments fade in and out, like trying to remember details of days long past.

In the case of Andrew Cox those days were spent in California on a dilapidated resort full of haunted buildings, one of which graces the cover of Amnesty. The property was owned by the Unification Church, a waning seventies cult of acid casualties and ex-flower children turned conservatives who worshipped a Korean messiah. After a strange upbringing, Andrew Cox went on to graduate from Calarts, and has worked for Hydra Head Records since 2007. He's directed videos for Old Man Gloom, Torche, and Helms Alee, created live projections for Prurient and Vatican Shadow, and worked with many others including Jesu and Sigur Rós. He also plays drums in Andraus. In Axed Crown he does nearly everything himself: recording, production, artwork. He plays and programs all of the instruments, with occasional help ("Solless" features his brother and Andraus guitarist Austin Cox). Perhaps that solitude is why these songs feel haunted. The ghosts of those empty buildings from his past, and the cassette-taped voices of religious leaders leak into the tracks.

Amnesty drifts through a haze of sub-genres, with impressions of shoegaze, noisy electronics, ambient experimentalism, and even twinges of industrial and black metal. It's post-something. The cohesion of it's precursors and influences becomes something more, as a person is more than the sum of their experiences. Like broken pottery repaired with gold, the beauty of Amnesty is in the rough spaces between it's parts.

Current Projects

I have been busy with a bunch of stuff lately, and tend to forget how many things I am actually undertaking at any given time. So, I figured I would list them out here to help wrap my head around and let you know what I am up to.
Also, because I am bad at regular updates, this is my semi-regular info purge.

Pocket Book V is finished. We just completed printing and binding them. Akina hand-stitched every single one.

New band with my brother Austin. Thrash/doom/ambient/psych/electronic/metal
We've started recording. It's the first time I have been satisfied with the sound quality of drums I've recorded myself.

We also printed shirts:

- Helms Alee / Young Widows split
I did the cover art for the forthcoming split from my pals Helms Alee and Young Widows, to be released by Sargent House.

Axed Crown is my solo musical project. I've had a debut LP languishing in near-completion for a couple years now. I finally recorded drums for one song, "Overturn," that's been almost done for a while, and I think it is finally complete. Just need to tweak and add a few bits, and the record will be good to go. It's tentatively titled "Amnesty."

Here is the rough demo for "Overturn"

I have a short comic in the upcoming Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever TPB. It's basically Henry as Hellboy, and they fall through the floor of their house into a forgotten practice space. I'll post a preview soon. Also, the book's foreword is written by Rob Halford. ROB HALFORD. of JUDAS PRIEST.
Pre-Order It Here

I'm also working on Cheap Eats, a short cooking show featuring delicious recipes for the broke and lazy. It's for KCHUNG TV, KCHUNG's entry in the Hammer Museum's Made in LA 2014 Biennial.

Oh yeah, I also have a monthly show called Heavy Duty on KCHUNG radio. It focuses on hevay music for lightweights, and airs the fourth Sunday of every month.

- I'm in the middle of writing a short script about a metal band putting on a show at their parents' house. Hopefully I'll finish it this month and have it shot and edited before summer is over.

- I already wrote a feature length script for a post-apocalyptic ghost movie called Mountain Ghost that's influenced by The Road, Princess Mononoke, Red Dawn, and Neon Genesis Evangelion. Intending to but not really working on pre-production (designs, storyboards, etc). Might produce it as a comic first.

- On the far back burner is a short zine/riso book called Black Days. Black metal days of the week. Sunday is a burning church, Monday is black coffee, etc.

- Probably some other stuff I am forgetting/procrastinating on. For some reason I still feel unproductive a lot of the time. Let me know if you need a video, or a drawing, or music. Because I am not busy enough.

I blame the internet.
