Thisquietarmy Hex Mountains Release and Tour

THISQUIETARMY is the solo project of Canadian Eric Quach (formerly member of the instrumental post rock band outfit DESTROYALLDREAMERS). Since 2005 he explores under this moniker the never-ending spectrum of the guitar and its potential for exceptional ambient and loop drone sounds.

Characterisic for Quach’s experimental sounds is the inclusion of structural elements and textures from different genres such as post punk, shoegaze, kraut rock, post rock, black metal and doom metal. With a boundless creativity and energy Quach has released 20 physical records so far and has played over 200 concerts all around the globe in over 20 countries, including Canada, the US, Brazil, and almost all Europe.

The new album HEX MOUNTAINS encompasses Thisquietarmy’s sonic growth through his latest travels & encounters across the world. Touring & sharing the stages with monumental bands such as Year of No Light, Caspian, Om, Deafheaven or Russian Circles has definitely marked his desire to take it up a notch.

In an attempt to follow that ambition, Eric Quach leaves the misanthropy aside and enlists the help of drummer Scotty Rooney (Alaskan), bassist Dorian William- son (Northumbria/Adoran) and vocalists Émilie Bresson & Jeanne Peluard (Monarch) to add fresh elements to TQA’s sound: thundering drums, thick foggy bass and witch-like shrieks, while retaining thisquietarmy’s signature drone-based soundscapes that remain omnipresent throughout the record.

The collaborative sessions were recorded live in the Basque countryside and in various urban parts of Canada, then brought back together in the studio to extract its essence, crafting as a result TQA’s heaviest and darkest album yet. The epic guitar riffs, the explosive melodies and the uplifting beats will make you soar, but the creepy noise sorcery, the mental screams and the weighty burden will also make you want to throw up. From one peak to the other, climbing Hex Mountains is one hell of a trek. In line with the release of this new album, Denovali Records will issue TQA’s sophomore album Blackhaunter for the first time on vinyl.
