“Garden Of Fainting Stars” is an upcoming third studio album from an American art rock supergroup The Book Of Knots. Core of the band includes Tony Maimone (Pere Ubu, Frank Black, Bob Mould), Matthias Bossi (Skeleton Key, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum), Joel Hamilton (producer for Blackroc, Pretty Lights) and Carla Kihlstedt (Tin Hat Trio, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum).
The album includes plenty of guest contributions from the likes of Mike Patton, Blixa Bargeld and others.
The imagined utopias that await them at the other end of their fantastical journeys inevitably give way to the grim realization which mankind has faced again and again: at every hopeful turn, commonplace realities await us. A vast and empty universe, stretching far beyond infinity, capable of containing the countless imaginary creatures, civilizations, and otherwise terrestrial impossibilities that inhabit our dreams, dies in the fluorescent lighting of the laundry soap aisle at WalMart.
The Book Of Knots once again cast a wormless, rusty hook into the lifeless seas of the music industry, expecting to reap only sorrow.
