Neurosis added to ATP’s Nightmare Before Christmas

20 Aug
ATP have just announced NEUROSIS as part of their Nightmare Before Christmas festival event curated by SHELLAC OF NORTH AMERICA to help celebrate their 20th anniversary as a band, and the return of the festival to its original home of Pontins Camber Sands Holiday Camp.

NEUROSIS joins the 35 band bill which will be playing across the event on the venue’s excellent indoor stages featuring award winning sound, with DJs until late, Cinema and much more.


Steve Albini of Shellac: “The members of Shellac are inviting more of our favorite bands to ATP. Some, like Melt Banana and Uzeda, are old friends and comrades. Some, like Neurosis, Prinzhorn Dance School and Buke and Gase, are bands we’ve admired as fans, but all of them are bands we love and recommend to everyone.

For over 12 years ATP has set itself apart from other festivals by embracing seemingly disparate artistic genres, with events featuring art exhibitions, cinema programmes, spoken word performances and stand up comedy. Tickets for ATP’s Nightmare Before Xmas curated by Shellac Of North America are priced at £180 per person including festival entry + accommodation on sale via
NEUROSIS are top of the list of the new additions to this brilliant festival, and with news this week of the release of their tenth album there is now even more to be excited about.
Stay tuned for more announcements in the coming weeks and read on to find out about their brand new album….

The follow-up to their acclaimed 2007-released Given To The Rising album, the music on Honor Found In Decay is both torturous and transcendent. It is the ongoing exposition of a vast internal dialogue that seems to carry the weight of eons. With the right kind of ears and eyes, it can seem like the trials and tribulations of mankind are being channeled through five individuals: Steve Von Till, Scott Kelly, Noah Landis, Jason Roeder and Dave Edwardson. And yet? They will be the first ones to tell you that they are just regular people trying to make sense of the world around them. Aided by Josh Graham, their resident visual guru, they transmit their interpretations through multiple sensory planes. The degree to which Neurosis allows them to step out of their everyday lives is the distance between one and zero, the distance between thinking and doing, the distance between this minute and the one that may or may not follow. Which is to say: NEUROSIS takes them outside of themselves and brings them closer to themselves. Simultaneously.

This next chapter in the evolution of NEUROSIS will see worldwide release through the band’s own Neurot Recordings this Autumn, in Germany October 26th, in the UK October 29th, and in North America on October 30th.

Further details on Honor Found In Decay will be made available over the coming weeks.
