Keiji Haino, Oren Ambarchi and Stephen O'Malley releasing album

Group collaborations have been fruitful for Oren Ambarchi of late. The Australian percussionist is now releasing an album with Keiji Haino (his second this year), and Sunn O)))'s Stephen O'Malley. Haino is on guitar, vocals and synth, O'Malley plays bass, and Ambarchi is listed as being on battery.

The four track record (with characteristically Haino track names, including "Not A Joy To Come Closer But So-Called A Sacred Insanity Has Finally Appeared") is titled Nazoranai. It will be released via O'Malley's Mego sub label Ideologic Organ, on CD and double LP, and is due to arrive on 3 July. More details here.
