Brothers Michael and Jared Bell have announced the imminent release of their first LP since 2009’s Shutter Release under their moniker Lymbyc Systym. Symbolyst (arriving September 18 via Austin-based label Western Vinyl, artwork above) is the duo’s third LP to date, but the first written with a significant geographical distance between the bandmates, with Michael living in Japan and Jared in Brookyln. “Prairie School” is the record’s opening tune, and boasts a driving, arpeggiated melody which bubbles underneath the moody Rhodes chords while a whining synth floats atop the crunchy drum beats and distorted bassline. This fall, Lymbyc System will be on tour across the US in support of Symbolyst, the dates of which you’ll find after the jump, along with a teaser video for the band’s new LP.
