Official press release:

The Crash & The Draw is the long-anticipated new full-length from Midwest avant sound voyagers, Minsk. Set to drop via Relapse Records next month, The Crash & The Draw follows the enigmatic collective's six-year hiatus and delivers eleven stunning movements that transcend far beyond the boundaries of post-metal, sludge and psychedelia.

As its official release day draws near, today Stereogum offers up closing track "When The Walls Fell," for public intake noting, "The Crash And The Draw revisits and expands upon the features that made this band appealing in the first place, from their meticulously layered vocals to their masterful dynamic sensibility. Post-metal bands always get saddled with wave/tide metaphors, but the way that 'When The Walls Fell' gradually rotates between restraint and aggression until it reaches its emotional climax really does evoke some cyclical force of nature - a force that remains as powerful as it's ever been."
