matthew friedberger matricidal sons of bitches Matthew Friedberger announces new album: Matricidal Sons of Bitches

Last year, Fiery Furnaces’ Matthew Friedberger went all out with his Solos project, releasing eight albums between January and November. Building on the scope of that prolific effort, Friendberger’s next album, Matricidal Sons of Bitches, will feature 45 tracks sequenced as movements.

The LP was recorded in Paris and inspired by the B-movies of studios like Poverty Row. “The production values and narrative techniques of these films became the basis for Matricidal Sons of Bitches,” Friedberger wrote in a press letter, adding the record is “a horror movie made so economically that the film itself is unnecessary.” To read the rest of his quasi-unintelligible diatribe, head here.
