We are thrilled to officially welcome our friend Dana Schechter to SGG, as we prepare the release of “Portal/Well”, the debut LP from INSECT ARK.
Insect Ark began as a solo project in 2011 and has recently expanded to include drummer Ashley Spungin. The band is largely instrumental in the experimental/doom genre, equally inspired by 60’s horror film soundtracks, metal, psych, and traditional classical composers.
You’ve likely encountered Dana’s large and eclectic body of work as a member of M. Gira’s Angels of Light, fronting Bee and Flower(Neurot Recordings), through her collaborations with Locrian and Enablers, her earliest efforts in Gifthorse(with Leviathan/Lurker of Chalice’s Jef Whitehead), or stints with American Music Club and 4AD’s Tarnation.
A European tour begins November 6 and includes dates with Aluk Todolo, Nadja, Half Japanese, Maserati, and an appearance at Le Guess Who? Festival in Utrecht alongside Annette Peacock, Magma, Faust, Keiji Haino, Charlemagne Palestine, Today is the Day, Swervedriver and many more.
Stay tuned for more information regarding shows and release details.
