Event Details

"Retribution Gospel Choir, the side project of Low frontman Alan Sparhawk, has announced its third record, and the details make it sound like a doozy. The not-so-creatively titled 3 features just two songs—“Can’t Walk Out” and “Seven”—each of which clocks in at about 20 minutes long. “Can’t Walk Out” has been a staple of the band’s live show for some time now, and “Seven” features guest guitarist Nils Cline of Wilco." - The Onion A.V. Club


the revolution EP is the first new music from Retribution Gospel Choir since the band’s 2010 album 2. These four incredibly anthemic tracks were co-produced with Matt Beckley, and they show the band moving in an exciting, new direction, at speed.

On 2
“Seriously heavy, Crazy-Horse-ish workouts….” UNCUT****

“a terrific slab of rough-hewn alt-rock” Q****

“If this is a cunning plan to get mainstream rock fans into Low, I’m all for that. If it’s just the emergence of a storming power trio, well that’s fine too” SUNDAY TIMES****


"Retribution Gospel Choir - 3

Q: How do you follow-up a four-song 7”?  
A: With a two-song full-length.

One song per side, this radio-format-challenged record will come out January 22, 2013 on Chaperone Records.  Side A “Can’t Walk Out” is the crown jewel of recent RGC live shows with it’s repetitive, building, almost free, freakout - so far, probably the most accurate recording of what the band brings to the stage.  Side B “Seven” sees the more sprawling side of the band - haunting, epic, and enhanced throughout by guest guitarist Nels Cline.  These songs were tracked live, playing together in the same room, one take each.

A friend of mine used to play Frank Zappa’s “Uncle Meat” at 16 rpm all the time.  How do you recover from that?
