Rebellion Manchester presents;
âº Author & Punisher
AUTHOR & PUNISHER, named, âone of the most prolific acts in aggressive music,â by Noisey, has fabricated a new arsenal of machines and is working on his debut release for Relapse Records due out in late 2018. Last year saw the self-released EP Pressure MineÂ which followed full-length Melk En Honing, released inÂ 2015 via Phil Anselmoâs Housecore Records. The recordÂ was listed among Decibel Magazineâs Top 40 AlbumsÂ Of 2015 and continues to astound listeners globally.
After leaving a career as mechanical engineer in Boston to focus on art and sculpture, Tristan Shone, theÂ creator and sole artist behind AUTHOR & PUNISHER,Â moved west to pursue his MFA in Southern California. In the metal and machine shops of University of California, San Diego, Shone forged a relationship withÂ design, sound and fabrication that ultimately yieldedÂ AUTHOR & PUNISHERâs first music and mapped theÂ journey away from traditional instrumentation towardsÂ custom made, precision machinery. Shone used his
technical knowledge, along with his artistic backgroundÂ to create what Wired Magazine has hailed as his ownÂ âspecial brand of doom metal.â
All aspects of the AUTHOR & PUNISHER sound beginÂ with physical movement, limbs struggling in unison toÂ coordinate a wall of electronic rhythm and oscillation,Â ultimately conditioned by an organic and loose quality absent of plastic perfection. AUTHOR & PUNISHERÂ performances are a real amalgamation between manÂ and mechanisms. They are direct, physical, heavy experiences that have amassed praise and intrigue from aÂ wide array of audiences. Pitchfork styled him âimmediate but mysterious,â Stereogum described his âchilling,Â unrecognizable form,â and NPR hails him as âa thrillÂ [who] fires on all cylindersâ.
