Liverpool collective Bonnacons of Doom return with their first new music since 2018’s critically acclaimed S/T debut album. This new four track EP features a brand new composition called Esus and three incredible remixes by Liars, JD Twitch (Optimo) and Capac – all three are remixes of songs taken from their S/T debut album.

Esus is being released as a special edition cassette that is ltd to 100 copies on 13 September and these can be preordered via: Bandcamp
Esus starts with an ominous fuzz riff that draws the listener deep into the world of Bonnacons of Doom. Kate’s pagan’esque, repetitive vocal collides head on with the cacophony of doomed guitars and synths.
Then come the remixes of tracks from their debut S/T album...
JD Twitch – one half of the legendary Scottish DJ / label owners and NTS resident team Optimo has turned album opener Solus into a sub-bass heavy, psychedelic, caveman stomp of the highest order. Dance floors with crumble under its pure weight of this repetitive monster.
Track three sees ‘Australia via Brooklyn’s’ kings of avant-punk-electronica Liars take Bonnacons’ track Industria and deconstruct it into looping drones of noise, feedback and subtle melodies.
Finally, sonic explorers Capac take the track Solus and strip it back
to an otherworldly, minimalist soundscape of fuzz, voice and stripped back percussion.
