Detroit post punk band Protomartyr announce their new album, ‘Formal Growth In The Desert’, out on Domino.

Composed of vocalist Joe Casey, guitarist Greg Ahee, drummer Alex Leonard and bassist Scott Davidson, Protomartyr have become synonymous with caustic, impressionistic assemblages of politics and poetry, the literal and oblique Casey describes the underlying theme of ‘Formal Growth In The Desert’ as a 12-song testament to“getting on with life,” even when it feels impossibly hard.

In some sense, ‘Formal Growth In The Desert’ is a testament to conflicting realities the inevitability of loss, the necessity of finding joy through it and persisting that come with living longer and continuing to create. It begins with pain but endures through it, cracking itself open into  sweeping torrent of sound that is, for Protomartyr, totally new.
