Shackleton will release a new album as Tunes Of Negation on Shapednoise’s Cosmo Rhythmatic in October. 

Reach The Endless Sea is a collaboration with keyboardist Takumi Motokawa and vibraphonist Raphael Meinhart, “whose symbiosis with the producer generates a truly beautiful and multi-directional flow of energy,” the label explains. Vocalist Heather Leigh also sings on the first two songs.  

The album title, inspired by a poem by 13th century mystic Jalalu’l-Din Rumi, is a description of what Shackleton himself hopes to achieve with the music: “aid transmutation and enter into the light.” 

We’re told to expect a “meditation on the non-finitude of life and spirit, and the limits of perception in dealing with it.” 

Tunes Of Negation’s first live appearance will be at Berlin Atonal at the end of August, where Heather Leigh will join. 

Shackleton last released in September with Furnace Of Guts via own Woe To The Septic Heart. 

Reach The Endless Sea arrives on October 17 and is available for preorder here. You can stream “Nowhere Ending Sky” below.
