Absolutely chuffed to be putting this out after talking about it for literally years. FRU is one of the absolute best drone bands not just in the UK but on the planet and over the past few years I've seen Fraser (and then Fraser and Grant) play some of the most dense, suffocatingly heavy drone noise time and time again that has only been surpassed by the untouchable Culver.
Lee Stokoe's work is a good basis for comparison if you're a FRU virgin and they tread similar sound-in-a-vaccum stasis and churning, crunching, collapsing-building noise as Gateshead's finest. This band is a major force in its own right though and there's a real foreboding horror movie atmosphere going on here.
Really glad to be bringing this band to a bigger audience and I just hope this leads to giving these guys the attention they so thoroughly deserve!
