Thou And Emma Ruth Rundle Announce Collaborative Album

Thou and Emma Ruth Rundle’s May Our Chambers Be Full album is coming, and it’s heavy…

Following on from their recent collaboration on a load of Nirvana covers, and their set of Misfits songs at last year’s Roadburn festival in the Netherlands, Louisiana doomsters Thou and Kentucky singer-songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle have announced a full-length album together, titled May Our Chambers Be Full. 

The first song to be released from it, Ancestral Recall, is a bit heavy…

It’s an easy marriage of our styles that was truly enhanced by everyone’s input during the arrangement process.” Thou’s guitarist Andy Gibbs explains. When I first wrote the main two riffs — the first one being an homage to A Perfect Circles Sleeping Beauty — I didn’t know if it would fit with the vibe we were pursuing because it didn’t sound Thou‑y’ enough, nor did it sound like something Emma would normally put on a record. Ultimately, I realised how important that trait is; this record is all about exploring territory we wouldn’t usually explore with our own records.”

Andy originally wrote the riffs and I believe I referred to it as the Guitar Hero’ jam,” says Emma. It was hard for me to keep up and I felt like I was doing an obstacle course, in the best way. Because of the differences in our guitar tunings, it was difficult for me to match the rest exactly, and I ended up coming with a single note passage to play over the most difficult section. For me, this was a good example of the collaboration, and that I was able to express my style despite my limitations in a way that added to Andy’s riff. Working with him on guitars was a challenge, but most rewarding, and I feel proud of our child.”

May Our Chambers Be Full will be released on October 30 via Sacred Bones.
