THOU
Magus is Thou’s first full-length since 2014’s Heathen. In the months leading into the new album, Thou will be releasing three drastically different EPs: The House Primordial on Raw Sugar, Inconsolable on Community Records, and Rhea Sylvia on Deathwish, Inc. Each record will focus on a particular sound—noisy drone, quiet acoustic, and melodic grunge—all of which is incorporated into the new LP, subsumed in the band’s more standard doom metal.

While sonically, Magus may be a continuation of Heathen, thematically it stands as a stark rebuttal, a journey beyond the principles of pleasure and pain. It is more the culmination of these distinct EPs, which all orbit some internal black hole. FFO alienation, absurdity, boredom, futility, decay, the tyranny of history, the vulgarities of change, awareness as agony, reason as disease.

MJ Guider is the solo music project of Melissa Guion. Started in New Orleans, LA in 2011, the first MJ Guider release was January 2014's Green Plastic cassette on Oakland's Constellation Tatsu label. After signing to Kranky in 2015, the full length LP Precious Systems was released in July 2016. New music coming in 2019.

A live band version of the project - featuring super-talented friends/musicians Mike Wilkinson of Marker and Emily McWilliams of Silver Godling - will be making an appearance (or several) in the latter half of 2018.
