New album from Deathprod

First LP in 15 years due out on Smalltown Supersound

Deathprod is releasing a new album this autumn marking 15 years since the artist, real name Helge Sten, has released a solo work. Back in 2015 he and Biosphere put out Stator on Touch, but his last solo album proper was Morals And Dogma in 2004 on Rune Grammofon. Morals And Dogma was reissued on Smalltown Supersound in 2017 as part of a Deathprod vinyl reissue campaign that included Treetop Drive (1994) and Imaginary Songs From Tristan Da Cunha (1996).

To mark the event he's playing a special concert on 10 November at Oslo’s Opera House, a building that is rarely used for music outside of opera circles.

The new release–title and exact release date unknown–will come out via Smalltown Supersound in October 2019.
