John Frum Releases “Memory Palace” Video

Enigmatic, cult metal collective John Frum just unveiled a video for new song “Memory Palace.” The song is found on the band’s upcoming, debut album, “A Stirring In The Noos,” which is set for release through Relapse Records on May 12th.

Pre-orders are online now right here. The band also comments: “‘Memory Palace’ is a journey into the ever changing and expanding void we find ourselves hurtling through, and a reflection on the fleeting knowledge one stands to gain within. It also speaks to the pitfalls of our god complex and the futility of enlightenment on any scale.”

The mysterious John Frum is the manifestation of four musical minds coalescing in a collective consciousness developed from time spent playing with The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Faceless, John Zorn, Cleric and many more elite projects. This unorthodox debut maneuvers through 40 minutes of darkly psychedelic and meticulously crafted death metal, acting as the backdrop of a bad trip. Fans can also see the band live:

April 14 – Philadelphia, PA – Shred Shed w/ Surgeon + Night Raids + Special Guest Headliner TBA
April 15 – New York, NY – St. Vitus w/ Imperial Triumphant + Special Guest Headliner TBA
April 16 – Baltimore, MD – Metro Gallery w/Cemetery Piss + Special Guest Headliner TBA
