[[[[[ Crystal Desert presents BLACK SUMMER ]]]]]

Crystal Desert is releasing a series of singles throughout Summer 2016. All of the songs have been recorded in pairs, each pair of songs making use of a different set of audio engineering techniques. With the BLACK SUMMER sessions, the band has teamed up with producer Simon Nicol to create a group of recordings which explore the darker corners of their sound.

The fifth song "Generator 9" features vocals from all 3 band members and additional production by Alex Taschereau. It will be released on cassette with the final BLACK SUMMER track on Saturday, September 24. This cassette will feature exclusive artwork and be a limited edition of 12 copies.


Patient under time
Sent to work the generator 9

Pools of black align
Obsolete containers of your life
(The body and mind)

Beyond the odds I found your ego
Bent along the value of death
Beyond the odds I found the reason
Rest to the restless end

I've seen a struggle two oblivions deep
I've seen the final buckle of oblivious knees
I’ve seen the sacred bleach absolve a beautiful mind
I’ve seen the sacred permanence of Generator 9

Keep knocking on doors that read “vacancy”
And read the writings on the wall
Your misconception of reality has brought us to a halt


from BLACK SUMMER, released September 24, 2016
Recorded in Everett, WA. by Simon Nicol & Alex Taschereau.
