Dumbsaint announce new album, Panorama, in ten pieces.

The first single and short-film, Cold Call, was released on July 3 and can be seen in all its glory below.

Cinematic, instrumental four-piece Dumbsaint have announced the follow-up album to their acclaimed 2012 release Something That You Feel Will Find Its Own Form.

This ambitious release not only marks a new beginning, but a fitting end to the past 3 years, which has seen the band release The Auteur EP and Disappearance In A Minor Role soundtrack and DVD. In that time Dumbsaint have toured Australia with This Will Destroy You (USA), Russian Circles (USA), Boris (JPN) and Earth (USA).

Containing 55 minutes of their darkest, most challenging music to date, the album was written over a year and recorded in late 2014 with producer Dax Liniere (Sleepmakeswaves, Solkyri), in several rural and suburban studios. Mixed by Liniere over a 4-month period and mastered in High Dynamic Range by Sean Diggins, this record showcases the band's intricate and unorthodox songwriting.

As with every Dumbsaint release, Panorama, in ten pieces. will contain a synced film component. The 60-minute feature-length film was written, funded, filmed and edited entirely by the members of Dumbsaint: 

'Panorama, in ten pieces. is a suburban horror that tells the story of a residential street in darkness. Populated by a revolving ensemble of dysfunctional lovers, loners and shut-ins, the film peers in at the strange relationships and domestic rituals that go on behind the closed doors of one neighbourhood at night.'

Shot over 6 months with a cast of 25 actors, this surrealistic adaptation of the album's 10 tracks will come as a vinyl-only exclusive to be released separately in full at the end of 2015.

Panorama, in ten pieces. will be released on August 7 on LP, CD and digital formats in Australia through Bird's Robe Records and Art As Catharsis Records, with a limited cassette tape release through Grimoire Cassette Cvlture.
