News: Xasthur Release New Single ‘Selling Yourself to Die’

Xasthur have dropped a new single “Selling Yourself to Die” from forthcoming album Disharmonic Variations due out July 5. The new record has been described as dark, American folk music.

Xasthur comments:

“Giving too much of yourself, or whatever you have, and receiving very little in return. It means not being able to live any kind of life for what you sold yourself for. The title comes from what I’ve seen people do for so little yet they wouldn’t have done it any other way.”

Disharmonic Variations is a product of the open wound that is Xasthur mastermind Scott Conner’s life. The title of the record serves as both the program and the message of it. The 13 tracks on the record are born out of pain. For Conner, music isn’t a job; it’s art, which he makes 24/7 on his own terms, in his own way, with his gear and instruments piled up in the room where he stays at the time.

There is no guarantee for the direction that Xasthur will take next. Whatever happens depends on what Conner feels.
