Until The Day I Die is Kollaps’ third LP for Cold Spring Records. The record, set for release in June 2022, is merciless and visceral assault on the senses and continues the trajectory of the band’s idiosyncratic approach in their creation of sound. Until The Day I Die is an uncompromising force of harsh post-industrial music narrated by overarching themes of condemnation and redemption; violence, romanticism, sexuality, and addiction. Much of the creation and lyrical conceptualisation of the record has been stylised and presented by the use of William S. Burroughs’ cut-up method.
A wide variety of metals and raw materials were used in the creation of the album including metal grates, a rusted hoist, cement cylinders, field recordings, hammering of various decrepit objects, broken amplifiers, an exposed reverb tank, various synthesizers, and the infamous metal coil; a crudely self-constructed artifice that has become iconic in its use across Kollaps’ triptych of releases and lengthy touring history in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Until The Day I Die has had a tectonic shift in production methods compared to its predecessors and was entirely written, recorded and mixed internally in a self-constructed studio above the sculpture museum of Mario Bernasconi in Lugano, Switzerland.
