The Sound of Animals Fighting on The Ocean and The Sun

The Sound of Animals Fighting will release their third album, The Ocean and the Sun, on September 9th through Epitaph Records. Characterized by their experimental mashing and molding of musical form, style and genre, the members of The Sound of Animals Fighting—known only by their zoological pseudonyms—have sought to redefine the process and reception of music using whatever tools they can get their hands on; whatever methods, science or alchemy. The Walrus, the Skunk, the Lynx, and the Nightingale return, delivering the latest collaboration as both an album aimed at redefining the structure and style of modern music, as well as telling a story of the raw, awe-inspiring power of nature, and how we can so easily forget it. The record, like the ones that preceded it, was assembled over gaps of geography and time, coalescing as a hand-crafted object from percussion up, passing from one animal to another as a story and aesthetic formed beneath and around it. At the core of the album is the cornerstone song in four tracks: “I, The Swan”, “Another Leather Lung”, “Cellophane” and “The Heraldic Beak of the Manufacturer’s Medallion.” Collectively, they form the crux of the story of the record around-which the other tracks act as a frame and context.
