Deer Bear Wolf Records is proud to announce that Nomen Novum’s new full-length album ATLANTVM is out now. Over five years in the making, ATLANTVM is a concept album, guiding you through different zones of a mythological, post-apocalpytic, or dreamed Atlanta.
“Early in the making of the album,” Nomen Novum aka David Norbery explains, “my work relocated to Doraville, near Spaghetti Junction, and these grey, industrial new environs were a massive influence on the tone and lyrical content of the album. A lot of the lyrics and titles reference real places around there. A hospital. A strip club. A motocross park. A gas station. All pretty mundane stuff, but the names were evocative to me, and I tried to imagine what else they could stand for.”
“At one point it was going to be a double album,” says Norbery. “At least ten additional songs were recorded and then abandoned, including a few I originally thought of as singles. There are sides of my music that I don't find flattering, and with this record I tried to be more aware of how I present myself. The cover is this great fresco my dad painted in the 80's, depicting an ancient structure and person disappearing in a flood, and while I wasn't thinking of Atlantis during the making of the record, it seemed appropriate.”
ATLANTVM Track List:
- Yellow Shadow
- Half Light
- Angler's Corner
- Hidden Acres
- Moon Lingerie
- Integrity Heights
