Collapsing Scenery: Gold Rush

Genre mixing at its core, the music of Collapsing Scenery has consistently taken a variety of stylistic and conceptual detours. The group announces the release of A Desert Called Peace, their upcoming album, which will be available on March 10th, 2023. For this one, they drew inspiration from a wide assortment of dissimilar genres, including dancehall, techno, post punk, britpop, darkwave, industrial, free jazz, funk, and soul.

The album's name originates from Tacitus' description of the fabled Caledonian chieftain Calgacus and his criticism of Roman conquest: "To ravage, to slaughter, to usurp under false titles, they call empire, and where they make a desert, they call it peace."

The album's lead single, Gold Rush, approaches the biodiversity and climate crises from a cautiously nihilistic perspective. It is a sincere endeavor which was stimulated by feelings of apocalyptic joy and despair.

A Desert Called Peace features appearances from Avalon, L’espiral, RugiRugz, and the reggae legend Tippa Lee.
