Extreme-music fans know singer-guitarist Steve Von Till as one of the two frontmen (the other being Mastodon’s “fifth member” Scott Kelly) of Neurosis, the post-metal stalwarts responsible for such transcendent epics as Through Silver in Blood and Times of Grace. But for 20 years, the musician has also been pursuing a solo career, sometimes under the stage name Harvestman, writing and recording much quieter, if still heavy, songs that delve into folk, ambient, neoclassical and other divergent genres.
Today (May 6th) Von Till announced his latest solo album, No Wilderness Deep Enough, and offered up its opening cut and lead single, the mesmerizing “Dreams of Trees” — stream it below via YouTube. But that’s not all. The Neurosis vocalist also revealed plans to issue his first-ever book, titled Harvestman: 23 Untitled Poems and Collected Lyrics. The collection assembles writing from across his two-decade-long solo career, and will be published in a limited hardcover first edition by Astrophil Press at the University of South Dakota and illustrated with linocuts by Mazatl. See the table of contents — as well as the track listing for No Wilderness Deep Enough below. Both the book and the album are available for pre-order now via Neurosis’ own label, Neurot Recordings.
