Genghis Tron: Dream Weapon

New York progressive experimental act, Genghis Tron, bring back their unique fusion of intricate noise rock and electronics with their first album in thirteen years. Dream Weapon will be following 2008's Board Up the House, and it comes out on March 26th, 2021 through Relapse Records.

The band's core of Hamilton Jordan and Michael Sochynsky is now connected to two new collaborators, vocalist Tony Wolski from The Armed, and Sumac/Baptists drummer Nick Yacyshyn.

Though it sounds a bit different than our previous albums, I don't think we approached Dream Weapon any differently than the others,” Hamilton Jordan explains. “Michael and I take years to write and trade demos, with about 80% of our ideas landing on the cutting-room floor. Once we have a rough song idea we both like, we write dozens of drafts of a song over months before we end up with a final demo.”  

I think one difference in our approach for this album was that we had a strong sense from the outset of what kind of vibe we wanted to create,” Sochynsky adds. “Something more cohesive, meditative and hypnotic.

The album's title track couldn't have sounded shaper nor more exciting, and it's accompanied by a very creative visual directed by Mount Emult.

Dream Weapon was recorded and produced with Kurt Ballou at God City Studio in Salem, Massachusetts, with additional production and engineering by Ben Chisolm (Chelsea Wolfe), JJ Heath (Rain City Recorders), and it was mastered by Heba Kadry.
