Rosetta Announce New EP
2014-05-23 by rosettaforlife | 26 Comments
Rosetta have announced a new EP entitled "Flies to Flame", slated for release at an undetermined time later this year.

The band posted the following update:

“Our new EP, titled Flies to Flame, is being mastered this week. It’ll be out later this year in traditional formats — LP and
CD — on Translation Loss Records. This [is] not a pay-what-you-wish digital release.

This recording was a departure from our normal working style. We wrote the material in late 2012 and recorded it in a garage in
early 2013, while we were writing 'The Anaesthete'. It’s deliberately lo-fi, jangly, and experimental, a tribute to the stripped-
down sound of the post-rock and drone records we loved when Rosetta began.

Most of it was improvised as it was being recorded, and it was not edited or ‘fixed’ to make it sound polished. All the grit is
there. We used different instruments and equipment than we normally play with, since this material isn’t intended to be played
live. Instead it functions as a kind of process document, from an important and transitional year in our life as a band.

For the first time since 'The Galilean Satellites', we did all recording and mixing ourselves (with the invaluable help of our
intern engineer, Alex Ruday). Mike Wohlberg is returning to create the artwork and layout, and James Plotkin is mastering it for
both CD and vinyl.


Track list:

1. Soot
2. Seven Years with Nothing to Show
3. Les Mots et les Choses
4. Pegasus

Excited for this, despite having forgotten virtually everything about the Anaesthete. Still, grimy
Rosetta is great Rosetta.

Despite Anaesthete not living up to my expectations, I'm still pretty excited for this.

Anaesthete was such a disappointment in my book. I've lost my faith in these guys, hopefully this rekindles it.

It'll probably be more like the Rosetta we know, even if it's a different recording process.

just hope it's better than Anaesthete [2]

While I don't think Anaesthete is as bad as everyone else thinks, it's no where near as good as their past records. Hopefully this EP will be a return to form

They will probably never live up to Galilean Satellites or Wake/Lift again, but thats kinda okay because those are absolutely amazing albums.

I have my hopes up. They've literally only let me down once after four records, so I'm looking forward to this

Hopefully its more satisfying than The Anaesthete. They'll probably never hit an album as amazing as ADOM again but meh.
