Now, that vinyl-only release has finally made its way onto digital streaming platforms. Check it out down below via Apple Music and Spotify, followed by ATDI’s cryptic statement on the EP.
“How do you weaponize the insatiable thirst for life among vultures? How do you deprogram the coroner dissecting hiatus? What light beckons you from the sewers of suggestion? Is your instinct extinct ? Or does it hide in the flash burn of counterfeit automatons? Five boys with guilty slingshots swaying to the Midwitch Sound. Blinded by the DIAMANTÉ.”
