Venus Volcanism's new album TISSUE, is out on November 24th by Submersion Records. Written and recorded just 32 miles south of the Arctic Circle, her second solo album "TISSUE" is a sound journey where nature’s sequences and structures are explored through field recordings, captured in her newly discovered Icelandic surroundings.

The term tissue derives from the Latinword texere, which means to weave. Throughout the album Venus intertwines repeating patterns of sound, consisting of ethereal vocals, synthesisers and slow arpeggios, with field recordings.

"TISSUE" is a sonic heterotopy, suspended between the tangible and surreal, where nature’s vibrations and cyclical patterns are woven into the artist’s introspective journey of coming to terms with her own scar tissue.

She has already released two singles of the album “Volcanic Eruption” and “Resuscitation’s Ostinato”. The second one had a premiere with a music video on Kaltblut Magazine.
