Engulfing over forty-six minutes, SPOOK THE HORSES’ undulating post-hardcore and atmospheric metal shifts effortlessly between lacerating and sublime elements through eight dynamic movements on Rainmaker, the album tracked live at Studio Wellington by James Goldsmith (So So Modern, Die! Die! Die!), mixed in Melbourne, Australia by Sam Sproull (Shihad, Cairo Knife Fight, Gatherer) and mastered in Stockholm, Sweden by renowned engineer Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna, The Ocean, Kongh). Independently released by the band, Rainmaker is triumphantly streaming in several locations in addition to the album now being fully available through a variety of digital outlets, in addition to a deluxe vinyl edition on 180-gram wax pressed in two different color schemes -100 on bone with black and oxblood heavy splatter and 139 on red — each one hand numbered and including three random prints from a total set of nine by Max Telfer, who is responsible for all of the band’s art.
