“Meditations on Giving Up Completely” will be released on Friday, April 28 on Malignant Records. You can listen to excerpts here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9YV7kd2fQI — the first review is here, courtesy of Archaic Triad — here’s a brief glimpse of what they had to say:

“This is not an album for everyone, despite its brilliant construction and violently pursued goal of not affirming life in any way what so ever. To the many fans of extreme music that might enjoy listening to someone who clearly does not enjoy that much at all, making this fact very clear through music, The Vomit Arsonist’s latest effort is a clear 10/10. Had this album lived up any more to its title, it would simply never have been made.”

I have no live performances lined up in any capacity. The only thing I had booked this year (besides the NO WORKERS PARADISE release show earlier this month) was APEX XX, which has been cancelled. Feel free to reach out if you want to see me somewhere.

Work has begun on a couple new releases; a tape for Smrt Productions which will be a kind of extension of “Meditations…,” and a CD for a UK label that is shaping up to be far more aggressive and simplistic than most of my recent output. That could change at any second.

And after that, I got nothing.

“Acrimonious Self Loathing” design on front, logo on upper back. Dark grey ink on black 100% cotton 5.4oz shirts.  Manufactured by Forest Passage Printing.

Logo design by Theologian Prime

Next planned release is a C20 called “Weight,” to be released by VCTM MPCT.  Hopefully out by this year’s end.  It will be fairly limited.  More information when I have some.

Work on a new full length is nearing completion, about 75% done.  This will be a CD for Malignant Records, tentatively titled “Meditations On Giving Up Completely.”  I hope to have the recording finalized by the end of 2016.

I will be performing at Tommy’s in Providence, RI on 11/12/16 with Vehement Caress, Birdlady, and Lingua Ignota.  Visuals by Elizabeth Virosa (Snowbeasts).  This will likely be the last show of the year, at least locally, although I’m not totally certain of that.

i’m not sure how many will be made. i’m going to try and have some extras done, beyond whatever gets preordered, but i don’t know how/if that’ll work. safest way to get one is to order it now (or soon). i will leave the preorder up for a week or so, or until people stop ordering it.

IF YOU NEED A 2XL, 3XL, ETC., PLEASE SPECIFY WHICH SIZE YOU NEED IN YOUR ORDER.

i’ll let everyone know about turnaround time when i know. Holy Mountain Printing is doing the run on Hanes Eco Smart hoodies.

thevomitarsonist_onlyred_webTHE VOMIT ARSONIST – Only Red (Malignant Records, TumorCD77)
OUT NOW.

Two years after “An Occasion For Death”, Andrew Grant’s The Vomit Arsonist returns with a vengeance with his second full length for Malignant, “Only Red”. Inspired and galvanized by Brighter Death Now’s US shows in 2014, Grant’s latest takes on an even more visceral and dynamic feel than works past, and is unquestionably the heaviest thing he’s ever done. If An Occasion for Death showed moments of self discipline and hints of subtlety, no such restraint exists here, as everything about this record feels amped up to an entirely new realm of intensity. This is The Vomit Arsonist in full attack mode, as explosive and bludgeoning percussion loops emerge from a churning, monolithic pit of corrosive electronics, menacing transformer buzz, chain dragging atmospherics, and gasping machine exhalations. Throw in a heavy dose of processed, acidic vocals and the whole record becomes an adrenaline fueled ride,wrought with tension, extreme nihilism, and palpable hostility. With Only Red, Grant has laid down a new flag at the summit of an already impressive catalog. Final track is a remix of “Go Without” featuring Kristoffer Oustad. In 6 panel digipak, mastered by John Stillings.

“Only Red is a dark, moody work able to draw on convention and coax forth new sounds, constantly pushing back boundaries and redrawing the boundaries of death industrial. Stomping power electronics, wispy dark ambient and unrelenting noise come together in Grant’s most successful balancing act yet, and perhaps his first moment of real greatness”Toilet Ov Hell
