As Azar Swan, Zohra Atash and Joshua Strawn have continued railing against the same electronic genre constraints they first challenged in their former project together, Religious to Damn. Their latest effort is a remix record, Azar Swan Variations, that's due out May 19 on Handmade Birds. The album features songs from the band's previous full-length, And Blow Us A Kiss, remixed and reimagined by noise and power electronics royalty. Prurient's Dominick Pernow (operating as Vatican Shadow) took on "We Hunger," and William Bennett of Whitehouse and Cut Hands left his mark on "For Last And Forever."
Auditor)'s services were called in to tackle "Hush," a bonus track that will be bundled into the Handmade Birds release with ex-Coil member Drew McDowall's remix of "In My Mouth as a free download. Check out our exclusive stream of "Hush" below, and keep scrolling down for tourdates!
