Following a recent march through Europe alongside Atari Teenage Riot, one-man industrial doom sorcerer, Tristan Shone, more commonly known as AUTHOR & PUNISHER, will quake the stages of sixteen North American cities with his tectonic-shifting sound conjurings. Slated to embark today in Portland, Oregon at Stumpfest, Shone’s latest live incursion concludes with a stop at Psycho California Fest and serves as a precursor to the release of AUTHOR & PUNISHER‘s new full-length.

The as-yet-untitled long player, and first for Housecore Records, was captured at famed Nodferatu’s Lair in North Shore, Louisiana with label-founder Philip H. Anselmo and follows the critically adored Women & Children full-length, released in 2013 via Seventh Rule Recordings and currently available in a color vinyl configuration mirroring the AUTHOR & PUNISHER crest colors of yellow and black limited to 100 copies at THIS LOCATION.

Shone’s fabrication and industrial environment and processes reveal emotions, anxieties and elements of bliss inherent to the specific human/machine choreography. All aspects of AUTHOR & PUNISHER‘s sound begins with physical movement, limbs struggling in unison to coordinate a wall of electronic rhythm and oscillation, ultimately conditioned by an organic and loose quality absent of sequencing and plastic perfection. AUTHOR & PUNISHER performances are a true amalgamation between man and mechanisms. They are direct, physical, heavy experiences that have amassed praise and intrigue from a wide array of audiences. Pitchfork styled him, “immediate but mysterious,” Stereogum described his, “chilling, unrecognizable form,” and NPR hails him as, “a thrill [who] fires on all cylinders.”

AUTHOR & PUNISHER – Live Rituals To Commence Next Week In Tulsa, OK

In just one week, AUTHOR & PUNISHER – one Tristan Shone – will embark upon a 19-date North American trek supporting Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals. Fittingly dubbed the Technicians Of Distortion Tour, the long-anticipated journey will commence July 31st in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Additional support will be provided by WARBEAST.

Comments Shone of the upcoming adventure: “I knew I had to step it up when Phil asked me to join this tour…the result is my most ambitious live undertaking. I have worked myself to a bloody pulp soldering, rewiring, building, to make things stronger, louder and more devastating.  I also am bringing a small team along with me as well to help with live video streaming, cameras etc.  This will for sure be a raucous affair not to be missed….”

AUTHOR & PUNISHER mercilessly manipulate the principal conventions of doom, industrial and heavy bass music relying on cold steel and soulless machinery to sonically replicate the despondency of life. Described most succinctly as “industrial doom,” this one-man project utilizes primarily custom designed and fabricated machines and speakers, devices that draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation and robotics and focus upon the eroticism of interaction with machine. Through his maniacal audio decomposition, Shone paints an often disturbing soundtrack of a world gone rotten.

AUTHOR & PUNISHER’s latest long player, Women & Children, was unleashed via Seventh Rule Recordings last month and continues to raise the eyebrows of fans and critics alike for its cold, mechanical, inexplicably cathartic audio menace.

Women & Children is currently available via Seventh Rule Recordings. Order your copy at http://shop.seventhrule.com.

CRITICAL PRAISE:

“…heavy and disturbing like a nightmare you suddenly wake from but aren’t quite sure you fully escaped…” – Metal Injection

“Shone’s apocalyptic noise blends elements of industrial, doom, and dubstep, and contorts that mass into some chilling, unrecognizable form…” – Stereogum

 “…a remarkably bleak and sinister record that explores the depressive and psychedelic in entirely new ways.” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
