***SGG are proud to present the staggering new album from Irish foursome Hands Up Who Wants to Die, featuring members of Shifting, No Spill Blood and Wild Rocket. Working again with long-time collaborators John ‘Spud’ Murphy (Black Midi, Lankum, Caroline) and Ian Chestnutt, Hands Up Who Wants To Die present their long awaited third long player, Nil All. The album expands upon the delicate, brutal spectrum found on Hands Up’s previous LP, Vega in the Lyre, pushing further into spacious light and claustrophobic void. The band has twisted minimal musical ideas in various directions, with Spud’s sonic orchestration harnessing the exploration of sinuous melodies, elastic time and delicate micropolyphony.
The first release featuring Ten Past Seven’s Rory O’Brien on lyrical duties, themes include strange histories and characters enduring, often out of delusion. The anomalies and warped stories, barely believable. Life as a zero-sum game, brutal and absurd. Pressed in a limited edition run of 12" vinyl in two stunning color variations, housed in a beautiful package featuring the illustrations of Matt Hedigan.
