Holy Sons readies Fall of Man, tours (2015)

Emil Amos, the mastermind behind Holy Sons, returns with his second Thrill Jockey release, Fall of Man. The multi-instrumentalist (who also counts himself as a member of Om, Grails, and Lilacs & Champagne) carves out new territory on his most diverse release to date, adding more hooks and pop balladry to his songs while still retaining the intimacy and psychological depth of his earlier records.
Fall of Man was recorded between Portland, Oregon and Brooklyn with producers Brandon Eggleston (Mountain Goats, Swans), Al Carlson (Oneohtrix Point Never) and Jeff Saltzman (Grails). In an exclusive interview with self-titled, Amos talks about the upcoming album and shares a new video featuring a live acoustic version of album track “Mercenary World.”  The video was directed by Ego Sensation of White Hills.
