Anthems for Catharsis marks the follow up to thisquietarmy's last full length studio works "Rebirths", a representative collection of reworked tracks that have defined his purgative live performances. Between back-to-back tours in Europe & Asia and the release of live drone documents as well as collaborative works with Noveller, Aidan Baker/Hypnodrone Ensemble, André Foisy/Locrian, Syndrome/Amenra, thisquietarmy's Eric Quach went back to the drawing board in his Montreal studio, at the end of 2014.

Within the repetitive genre of ambient and drone, thisquietarmy constantly evolves and tries to incorporate new additional textures and structures into the music - for instance, think of the kraut rock shoegaze of "Resurgence", or the post rock doom of "Hex Mountains". However, in other to start fresh and shed skin from exhaustive influences, Quach strips his music down to the black bones. Anthems for Catharsis sounds very focused but also very very dark, not unlike a ritual cleansing or a detoxification. In dismantling his sound, thisquietarmy almost struck a black metal vein, resulting in a dark and brooding ice cold oozing of his signature drones.

TQA Records & Consouling Sounds are delighted to collaborate together to unleash this cold slab of harsh and moody drones. The release also celebrates 10 years of thisquietarmy.
