Everything Everything will be touring the UK next year.
Everything Everything have shared their latest new album track The Mad Stone.
It’s a perfect lead into the underlying narrative of Mountainhead which will be on show when it’s released on March 1st – a narrative, ‘wherein a society is forever building an immense mountain, at the cost of living in the resulting giant hole (quarry)’, according to Jonathan Higgs.
All of society is built around the creation of the mountain, and a mountain religion dominates all thought. At the top of the mountain is rumoured to be a huge mirror that reflects endlessly recurring images of the self, and at the bottom of the pit is a giant golden snake that is the primal fear of all believers.
“A ‘Mountainhead’ is one who believes the mountain must grow no matter the cost, and no matter how terrible it is to dwell in the great pit. The taller the mountain, the deeper the hole.”
