Primitive Man and Vermin Womb frontman Ethan McCarthy has just announced his debut, solo album under the Many Blessings moniker. This brand-new full-length, Emanation Body, is due for release on May 29 via Translation Loss Records.

The first single, “Pandæmonium,” was recently premiered at Cvlt Nation and can be listened to here.

About the track, McCarthy comments:

“Pandæmonium” is supposed to sound like what it sounds like when your brain erodes. I used a roli synth, a Dunable guitar, lots of Earthquaker devices pedals (Disaster Transport, Avalanche Run, Datacorrupter and a Transmisser) pretty much exclusively aside from a couple of boss and Electroharmonix stuff (three digital loopers and a freeze).

I took samples of the chimps fighting while I was at the San Diego Zoo as well as some samples from old nature documentaries and incorporated those samples into the music. My favorite part was when two boy monkeys started fucking in front of a family and my Christian, conservative sister and I just laughed and hit the weed pen.

Track List

1. Invocation
2. Immersion

Emanation Body is due for release May 29 via Translation Loss Records, and can be pre-ordered here.
