JK Flesh returns to Birmingham label Downwards

Exit Stance EP sees the Godflesh founder return to his fellow Midlands label for his first original solo release proper

Justin K Broadrick aka JK Flesh’s new EP will be released by Peter Sutton and Karl O'Connor's Downwards imprint in November. Called Exit Stance, it follows Nothing Is Free, a collection of two years’ worth of recordings given away as a free download via Bandcamp in 2015. A year later Downwards released the title track as a 12", featuring a Surgeon remix and “Kontorted” on the B side.

Broadrick's first original solo release as JK Flesh for the label will be released by Downwards on 27 November. Broadrick recently appeared in a duo with longtime collaborator Kevin Martin at Unsound, where they performed alongside Moor Mother under their new alias Zonal.
