While Justin Broadrick was unloading a quicky single as Pale Sketcher earlier this year (it's nice), it seems that the former Godflesh frontman was also been busy writing new Jesu material. “Homesick” is the first taste of Everyday I Get Closer To The Light From Which I Came, an album which, judging from the press release, is basically Broadrick's Married With Children:
“The epic ‘The Great Leveller’, at over 17 minutes, is the boldest statement of the songs here...[It] also lyrically deals with the existential drain that is early parenthood, since Justin became a father for the first time just before beginning work on this LP, and this life changing experience is mostly what this album examines thematically.”
So having kids is enough to inspire at least a Jesu album's worth of soul destruction. Good to know! It's out on Avalanche Recordings on September 23rd.
