The cosmos has now aligned, and with great honour Ritual Productions announce BONG’s return after three years with a new and momentous rite.
Bong feel ever so omnipresent on ‘Thought and Existence’, continuing their revered ability to transform time through their sublime sonic textures. As all listeners of this rite will attest, the band’s stellar meditative and mystical drone, amplified by the essential and ritualistic hue of the drums, permits our imagination to be heightened. New realms of perception and existence open up, even if only for the duration of the rite; the power of this listening experience subverting the laws of time and space itself.
The artwork echoes this philosophy. Ancient star maps, planispheres and the oldest astronomy charts of the skies are known for being persistently accurate in their arrangement and predictions of the constellations. This too rings true for Bong’s sound with ‘Thought and Existence’ seeing the band stick with their original Orion belt trio formation. Bong’s rites have continuously harboured high praise for their ability to take followers into the otherworldly ether and ‘Thought and Existence’ evolves and shimmers like the ever expanding Universe.
Exclusive to the Ritual Productions website, the clear blue with glow-in-the-dark splatter heavyweight LP shall be housed in hand silk-screened navy blue gloss sleeves (blue & silver editions) and are hand numbered too.
