Pre-order Why Are We Not Perfect between now and August 31st and you have the option of purchasing several limited edition extras. In addition to a brand new shirt/hoodie/long sleeve/girl shirt design that will not be reprinted, we've made up Jesu tote bags.
Stagnation and musical complacency are components completely unknown to Jesu mastermind and sonic alchemist Justin Broadrick. From record to record, and sometimes even from song to song, visible transformation in the molecular make up of Jesu is made plain to any and all willing investigators. While to core personality remains perpetually intact, the outer trappings continue to shift and fluctuate, which results in renewed vigor and vitality for Jesu, rather than providing fractured evidence of a shaky identity. With this new five track EP (2 songs of which originally appeared on the vinyl-only split 12" with Eluvium), Broadrick has set aside the heavy foundation of pounding guitars prevalent in past Jesu recordings and brought to the fore elements of texture and melody that previously hovered at the periphery of his monolithic compositions. While this may prove frustrating to metal idealists, those with a greater sense of adventure will find the results both illuminating and heartrending.
