Wrap your ears round a track from the Norwegian noise band's new EP

Quietus favourites Årabrot have just announced that they're releasing a new EP, Murder As Art, via Fysisk Format on October 25, a few days before their headline set at the label's free entry one-night takeover of The Old Blue Last on October 29.

Following this year's self-titled sixth studio album, it features Årabrot's Kjetil Nernes once again teaming up with long-term producer and collaborator Emil Nikolaisen of Serena Maneesh, as well as appearances from Swedish singer-songwriter Karin Park, Norwegian noise man Lasse Marhaug and drummer Erland Dahlen.

Also enclosed within Johannes Høie's sleeve art, alongside the 12", which comes on white vinyl, is an exclusive short story by the Quietus editor John Doran.

Ahead of the release, have a listen to 'Signifying Monkey', which is one of the EP's three tracks and previously featured on the label's eighth Bransjevelter compilation below, then head here to pre-order the EP:
