Brooklyn experimental metal band Liturgy recently announced The Ark Work, their follow-up to 2011’s Aesthethica, which will be released on March 24 via Thrill Jockey. An early track released from the album, “Quetzalcoatl,” shows that they’re moving away from the black metal sound of their first couple albums and into a new realm entirely. And fans will have an opportunity to hear the new direction of their music in a live setting starting in April, when the band hits the road in support of the album. Right now the band has dates lined up on the eastern half of North America, though Thrill Jockey says in a statement that more will be announced soon.
